A heart rendering tale with a very happy ending Brought the tears to my eyes What a remarkable lady Barby Keel is donating her whole life to the welfare of animals Long may she continue to rescue all those unhappy, unwanted and ill treated animals Of course we mustn t forget all the lovely volunteers who help her keep the animal sanctuary going.
So ok, I may be a little biased as I must admit I love a happy ending and to hear of a good deed which results in total happiness, but this is such a lovely story and lovely read and frankly if everyone in the world was that much kinder how wonderful it could be Good look to all the beautiful souls out there to find that second chance and may it be a truly wonderful and loving one.
This book starts off the first chapter as if written by the abused dog I ll admit it had me in tears The book is actually written by a fantastic lady who runs an animal sanctuary A very uplifting read.
If you can read through the vile cruelty of humans towards dogs you will be rewarded with the polar opposite when the dog finds all the love which is so deserved and all that from a lady who had survived cancer but still managed to put animals needs before her own well being.
Absolutely wonderful This book will show you that dogs are much superior to human beings as any dog owner will know they are such affectionate and understanding creatures and know when you need all their love
Bailey is a greyhound that has been through hell, a life no animal should go through, the shock that there are humans in this world that can treat animals so badly, breaks my heart.
But this book is so much , this is a about a dog battling from the brink of death determined and with enormous courage and fight.
The fight helped the author Barby Keel fight for her own life, Barby had her own battles, fighting and beating cancer once it had returned and was now fighting breast cancer for a second time.
This book follows the battle of Bailey and of Barby, a powerful, touching, heartbreaking, heartwarming, tear jerking story, yes I cried.
Why, I know exactly how Barby felt near the end of the story.
I personally have had dogs and mostly cats all my life, they are my children.
I admire, respect the job that Barby Keel is doing with all my heart.
I read this book and then started and finished another of her books, The Street Dog Who Found A Home.
I recommend both Rain Is Lashing Down When Barby Keel Is Called Out To An Emergency Unfolding At The Gates Of Her Animal Sanctuary, Deep In The Sussex Countryside A Greyhound Had Been Dumped Under The Cover Of Darkness, And Is At Death S Door.
