Living with the Rescues

Life Lessons and Inspirations

Sharon Langford

Can your dog teach you a thing or two about life? Sharon Langford thinks so. In a series of sixteen stories, she shares the lessons she has learned from a lifetime of rescuing and caring for homeless and injured dogs. Each of the stories prove that as with their human sidekicks, it's not the pedigree that enables these abandoned and neglected individuals to become faithful and congenial companions, its their souls.

Some of the instructions Langford has received from her canine friends include the importance of overcoming rigid beliefs; the necessity of approaching life with strength, will, and tenacity; ways to make the most of where you are; the importance of not comparing yourself to others; and the joy of finding the simple pleasures in life.

A treasure trove of memorable character studies, life instruction, and helpful tips, Living with the Rescues is a call to arms for readers to open their hearts and doors to the neediest.
