In this book, you find over 30 short accounts of people who have a rescued Boston Terrier. Some stories are fun and some serious. Several stories relate the awful thing about puppy mills and what happens to dogs there where they are used to breed purebred dogs and then they either die, or are abandoned or worse, once they are no longer of any use to the people who run these awful places. Many of the stories are heartwarming and funny. All in all, the stories give people the idea of how wonderful these little dogs are and how important it is that everyone remembers that there are so many dogs that need to be rescued and adopted.<BR>One of the stories, Eyes Only For You, tells about how an owner connects with his rescue dog just from the friendly eyes he sees when he meets her. In a sad story with a happy ending Foster Failure tells of a dog that nobody wanted and was taken in at a foster puppy home only to find the foster parents fell in love with the dog and wound up adopting him. This family gave a home to the poor dog who had lived such an awful life in a puppy mill. A few pages such as A Snort Break give a few sentences telling happy tails or funny moments about different Terriers.<BR>I believe that a book like this would open any one's eyes to the importance of choosing a rescue dog when the opportunity arises. As different books on different breeds are written and read, I imagine even more breeds of dogs will be better off and more dogs adopted. Perhaps you might have a rescue dog story of your own or may want to adopt a rescue dog after reading about these great animals and all they go through. --Karen Haney, Bookin With Bingo<br /><br />MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue was excited for the opportunity to partner with Happy Tails Books for their Boston Terrier book. It gave our members the opportunity to share how great life is with their new companions. --Jennifer Misfeldt, MABTR President<br /><br />This book, and the ones that are to follow, will, I believe, fill a void in the current availability of reading material, showing the reality of some dogs' lives and how they--and the lives of humans--can be turned around with just a bit of awareness and attention. --Julie Tinker
