Love Heels – Book Review/Comments

December 19, 2011 at 8:04 am 4 comments

Look at that awesome dog on the front of this full color book. There are many more photographs in this 10 x 10 tome of 224 pages. I devoured every heart-tugging story and feasted my eyes on the beauty of these magnificent animals.

Love Heels: Tales from Canine Companions for Independence contains a foreword by Dean Koontz and stories about Puppy Raisers, Facility Teams, Skilled Companion Teams, Service Teams, Hearing Teams, and Volunteers. 

This beautifully designed and illustrated book celebrates people and dogs. Canine Companions For Independence (CCI) is a not-for-profit organization that — with the help of so many volunteers– breeds, raises, trains, and then places it’s exceptional canine graduates with disabled children and adults who are in need of their assistance.

The stories and photos in LOVE HEELS bring the Canine Companions for Independence experience to life. From the joyful hours when litters are born, through the playful months of puppyhood, these team members cherish their canine charges until the day they tearfully, yet proudly, pass them on to those who need them most. 

As a gift, or for yourself, this is a gorgeous reminder of how dogs love us, and we love them.

    That is a beautiful dog on the cover. I haven’t seen this book yet, I’ll have to take a look for it.
