About the Author

Tricia O'Malley lives in Milwaukee with her husband Josh, and their much doted-upon dogs, Briggs and Blue. On a typical day you may find her working with marketing clients, writing, or designing websites. She loves the entrepreneurial life, is strongly resistant to the cubicle-world, and has an unhealthy penchant for shoes.

This book was captivating from the moment I started reading it! As one of the many following Briggs facebook page one year ago hoping against hope that Briggs would be reunited with his family, it helped to know that there was a happy ending. Tricia's writing is enveloping and her emotions throughout this journey are palpable in the pages. Highly recommend for those who DO need their faith in humanity restored! The dog-loving community surely are a great bunch of people. Bravo!

A riveting and emotional story, these amazing dog lovers have given me hope! This book tells the true story of Briggs' fearless owners, who left no stone unturned in their unrelenting effort to find him after he was stolen from their back porch. Dog lover or not, I highly recommend reading this heart-wrenching, uplifting, and beautifully written story.

What else can I say? I loved this book for the emotional roller coaster it took me on and how easily I was able to find myself in Trisha's head and heart. Her style of writing really allows the reader to grasp every emotion she felt on her search for Brigg's. I was so engrossed in it that when I was reading it on my ipad on the plane, the stewardess had to ask me twice to put my electronic device away!

Since I followed this story on Facebook as it unfolded, I was familiar with some of it. It was a nice, easy read, happy ending story. I do think for any dog owner, it is worth buying and reading as it provides information on how to handle things if/when your dog is stolen or lost.

I came across this book as I learned of Briggs through Facebook. I felt an instant connection, as my dog is named Briggs as well. I could have finished the entire thing in one sitting, but life kept getting in the way! A true page turner from beginning to end, I couldn't wait to learn of all the details of Briggs and his return. The author has a way of really bringing you into her life, perhaps with her incredible use of words and detailed descriptions throughout. Not only am I glad that Briggs was returned safe and sound, it gives me hope that there are good people left in this world! A MUST READ!

O'Malley's non-fictional account of the lengths she and her husband Josh went through to retrieve Briggs, who was kidnapped from their back deck, put me on a roller coaster of emotion. The story unfolds exactly as the book description suggests.

Trish and Josh's journey is told chronologically and in extensive detail. I thought the story would have had the same impact had it been shorter, but there may have been reasons the author didn't want to leave anything out. Regardless, it is worth a read, especially if you are a dog lover.

I am going to preface this by saying that I love animals, I have had pets my whole life, including many dogs. I have deeply mourned the passing of those I have lost. I completely understand the attachment we humans have for our animals, and that pets can become our "babies", particularly to those who do not have children.

Having said that, I was not 20 pages into this book before I knew I would never get through it.

This tale starts with the husband's discovery that their dog has disappeared from the couple's deck. He calls his wife (the author) who is at work and the drama begins. She drops everything at work and races home, "disregarding stop signs" along the way, "gunning the engine", and generally freaking out completely and making the roads safe for no one. Turns out a neighbor witnessed the dog being stolen from their yard. Even the author's description of how the neighbor informed them - by "shrieking" at them out of her window - is over the top. I hear the word "shriek" and I'm picturing Texas Chainsaw Massacre. She probably called to them, maybe even yelled, but shriek? From there, we are given a blow-by-blow account of their search for this dog. I could have tolerated this, but either the author is the world's biggest drama queen or she is making herself sound like one, hoping to tug on our heartstrings. Every minute of every day is spent in "panic" and "anxiety" over the dog's disappearance. She doesn't sleep, eat, or work. And she doesn't seem to understand how her husband can go on living during this "tragedy". Yes, she repeatedly calls it that. Tragedy. She doesn't get how he can possibly go to work.

I really enjoyed getting to know Briggs and Blue. My heart broke when Briggs was stolen. I have had a stolen pet that was never recovered. I was not in a position to be able to do anything close to what Tricia and Josh were able to do. I had to watch my daughter's heart break more and more with each passing day. In time a viscous neighbor owned up to the theft and destruction. The police would not step in since they said we could not prove it and the confession meant nothing...even though she confessed to the police! They said I had no physical proof! So I am soooo thrilled that Briggs was returned AND he gained a "brother"!
A must read for ALL animal lovers/owners.
