But Always True Stories About Living with Rescue Dogs.
"Tears & Laughter" "Heartwarming & Captivating."
Katie Woods grew up with animals; as a little girl, her best friend and guardian was a dog.
Growing up, nothing changed and over more than twenty years, she adopted or rescued a pot pourri of dogs, from a three-legged terrier to a ten stone Rottweiler.
This is the story of her journey through life with some of the mutts and mongrels who shared it; from the alluring to the alarming, the tranquil to the timid, the serene to the certifiable.
Meet Katie's dogs from over the years; Fudge, the geriatric labrador, Samson, the ten stone Rottweiler found abandoned and dangerous; but most of all, meet "The Gang of Four", Seamus, Shannon, Minnie, and Duncan the Canine Tripod".
All Rescue Dogs, but all unique and all with very different backgrounds and personalities: Seamus, abandoned, Shannon, abused by a paedophile, Minnie, condemned for aggression, and Duncan, the puppy amputee. They bonded with each other and with Katie in a unique relationship that was "The Gang of Four." Read their story for an unforgettable experience.
**Five Stars "Tears & laughter - A 'Must Read' book" **Laurie Lawrence
"Brilliant! Most enjoyable heartwarming read by an author who is totally chilled and at home with her dogs and nature ........ Katie's personality shines through, which has helped me to try to "chill a little more" over my two dogs, rescued from the vile puppy farm trade. You will shed a tear or two, but you will also smile and chuckle your way through these pages. Read this on e-book, but now ordered in paperback ... no more 'battery running low' just as I'm wanting to turn the page for more!"
**Five Stars "A Heartwarming Read" **Sandra S
"Just finished this wonderful book, The Long, The Short and The Tall. A really good read for anyone especially animal lovers, it has everything, comical in parts, gut wrenching in others & so sad you could cry. Katie's writing is awe inspiring, I felt as though I was actually there with her on her walks with her Gang of Four! I loved it & can't wait for when her life with her fur babies continues...."
**Five Stars "Heartwarming & Captivating" **Francine Haynes
"An absolute must for all who love animals, but equally appealing to anyone else. It's only drawback is that once started you cannot put this book down. I laughed and cried; Yes, really cried in places at the sheer tenacity of both animals and humans portrayed within. Katie Woods, you are a born story-teller and I look forward, immensely, to Scrumping for Lemons. When will it be ready?"
5.0 out of 5 stars For dog lovers
**Five Stars "For Dog Lovers" **Momma Snider
I love dogs. I love to understand their personalities and their quirks, and I love to look into their eyes as they gaze at me as I wonder what is really going through their minds. This book introduced me to several new dog friends and I came to love them as the author does. The descriptions of the different dogs, as well as the scenery in several different areas of England touched me deeply. I look forward to other works by Katie Woods!
