I’ll be honest. I bought this book because I have a thing for labs, have a wonderful senior lab and some of the proceeds were going to LRCP Lab Rescue, which provided me my wonderful sweet boy.

I didn’t realize the trials that the author had gone through. Bipolar, she faced issues most of us would count as nightmares. “Moody became my ambassador to the land of the living.”

The chapters are snapshots of the 21 dogs (84 paws) that Barbara adopted or fostered over the years and how they affected
