A LIFETIME OF RESCUING OLD AND UNADOPTABLE DOGS

serving in a British anti-aircraft artillery regiment during World War II.

Beautifully written from the heart and truly touching -- I just loved it!
Touching love stories from a wonderful, tenderhearted English woman.
My kids (12) and I loved reading this book. It is very well written and keeps up your interest. Would highly recommend this book to anyone who has adopted animals from a shelter or is thinking about adopting.
