I really enjoyed the story of Annie. I am blessed to be a part of this saga. I have one of the puppies and I would not give this guy up ever. Annie is a great dog and her story is one that will touch your heart. It is amazing to me that she survived. Thanks to this wonderful family I now have a fabulous dog that I will love forever, I also have a new family of friends. It is so worth your time to read this book. It will touch you in so many ways, Annie's courage and her willingness to survive. T ...more
