    Well I am a badcrazy animal lover I have four cats I take my friends dogs out I cannot wait to retire to get my own dogI am a big softy for a true story especially when animals are involved so a nice light read hereA enjoyable light read Megan Rix does explain well the work involved in having a puppy and the importance of training the beautiful puppies for six months so they are ready to work with all kinds of people with different disabilitiesSo why a three star book I enjoy the book I feel the heartbreak of giving a dog back actually not sure if I could do it But maybe we could have humour in the doggy stories heartfelt comical laughsAlso a lot of the book is about Megan and her struggle alongside her devoted husband of trying for a baby but was this a doggy story or my personal story a little mixedBut what I am sure about our both the couples devotion to the dogs the work they did for the charity and their loves of their dogsThree stars

    I really enjoyed this story I would just like to clear up a few things I felt weren't completely corrected about foster care I've been fostering for 12 years and have had 21 foster children between the ages of 4 days up to age 7 We take them on all our vacations and many outings We generally foster only one at a time but right now have two children age 3 and 4 This month alone we've been to the Zoo's festival of lights conservatory's train display two Christmas parties and many other places We have taken past foster children to Disney World different parts of Florida Mammoth Cave Smokey Mountains and many other weekend or week long vacations and have had little to no problems We belong to the YMCA and go to many different places every week It is true that foster children generally have issues than your typical child and fostering isn't for everyone but with the exception of one of my foster children the rest improved greatly in our home and were just like a typical child after only a few weeks Even the one I would say had the most issues improved in our home and I didn't have too many issues taking her places eitherAlso all of our foster children's visits are at an agency and not in my home I only have drop them off and pick them up The only time I have to meet the parents is when the child is going back to them and I transport the child to their home I have meet everyone of my foster children's parents except one with no problems The visits are usually only once a week occasionally two This could be different since I am in the US and the author lives in a different country however I only wanted to clear that up in case someone was considering fostering and was turned off by these things I have enjoyed it and am very rewarded by my experience fostering over the past 12 years It is not for everyone though and I respect Megan's choice to not go that route It is very hard when they leave and it's also hard dealing with the agency at times Taking care of the children on a day to day bases is the easy part

    In this exceptional story Megan Rix takes readers on her journey of becoming a puppy parent for a Helper Dogs organization I was simply amazed to read about the things these service dogs are trained to do for the disabled Dogs can do laundry? Really? And that's just one of the amazing things these dogs can do While I was reading this book I had taken a break to do some shopping and actually saw a helper dog in the department store My mind was immediately on this story I now have such an appreciation for these dogs and the talents of their trainers and puppy parentsI don't know how the puppy parents do it though Through Megan Rix's eyes I saw how attached she became to her trainer puppies Who wouldn't be? My heart broke for her after the couple months were up and the puppy she had spoiled with love had to move on to the next phase of their training Megan went through the process twice raising two successful puppies in training which is a feat because service dogs must be nearly perfect This was especially impressive because she had never owned a dog before As much as she wanted to keep these dogs as her own I know it was rewarding for her to hear about the difference they were making in the life of a person with a disability Service dogs are often the reason these people wake up in the morning It's very sweetAnother side of this story was the struggle Megan and her husband Ian had with trying to have a baby It warmed my heart that a dog could become so special in her life that it helped ease her pain with infertility issues I adored reading about how much these animals were loved You will too

    I really tried to read this book; I really did But I found myself bored out of my mind Rix's writing is tedious uneventful and repetitive I gave up on page 68 This is a short book with large print that I should have been able to finish in 2 days – 3 tops It's been almost two weeks I found myself not wanting to pick this book up and actually read 1 other book 3 comic compilations and a graphic novel in between I never found myself wanting to go back to this book so it was time to give it up Good thing I only paid 189 at Goodwill for this It's such a shame I didn't like this book; I love dogs

    A very very good read once you pick it up you can’t put it down There are some adorable photos of the dogs they adopted in the book I would definitely recommend people people to give it a read as it’s a eye opening book of what charity’s with dogs can do for disabled people and there family’s xxx

    All Megan Rix ever wanted was a baby Yet month after month Megan’s dreams were dashed Would her life ever feel complete?Megan and her husband Ian found a surprising answer when they began training golden retriever pups to become service dogs for people with disabilities But opening their homes and hearts up to Emma and then Freddy only to have each move on after six months eventually took its own toll Megan and Ian didn’t know if they could continue They needed to decide where they lives were really headed and if they needed a “forever pet” or foster another pet or have no pets at allDollycas’s ThoughtsThis book is truly heartwarming and heartbreaking To want a baby so badly and nothing works but we see how animals can sometimes fill that big void in a heart the way nothing else canWhile I have four healthy now adult children a grandson and another grandchild on the way I am also mom or grandma to six cats and two dogs The two dogs and two of the cats are here wandering around everyday bringing so much joy to my life The cats love to snuggle and even sit here on my desk and “help me type” they will knock books out of my hand when they feel I should be giving them attention The dogs warm my feet are needing of regular head pats and belly rubs and curl up at the foot of the bed when it is time to sleep Our pets are our family too They are always happy to see whether we have been gone an hour or a day or even longer Tails wagging cheerful barks huge meows tell us it’s about time we got home and they want our attention right now Plus the difference between kids and pets pets never ask for money or the keys to the car or complain they are bored with nothing to doThis book shows how a puppy can bond a family together It is very well written and gives a little different perspective than other books such as Marley Me I read it all in one sitting and really enjoyed it Another nice book for the holidaysDisclosure of Material Connection I received this book free from Plume I was not reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own Receiving a complimentary copy in no way reflected my review of this book I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR Part 255 “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”

    Having finally met the man of her dreams writer Megan Rix is ready to start a family Unfortunately Megan is the wrong side of 40 and nature is doing everything possible to thwart Megan’s plans To take their mind off things Megan and husband Ian look into the possibility of fostering puppies for the working dog charity “Helper Dogs” Just before Christmas the phone call arrives telling Megan and Ian that they will be getting their fist puppy Emma Over the next 6 months we hear all about Emma’s antics and the joy she gives The book is very informative about the training the puppies receive from a very early age and the people that they go on to help We’re also introduced to a wide range of characters both human and canine With out a doubt the canine ones steal the show each timeMy heart went out to Megan and Ian on than one occasion as I read the book Firstly the on going desperation to have a baby and the different options they considered Secondly when they realised that their time with Emma was up and they would have to pass her on to someone else for intensive training It made me realise how dedicated the people who do this type of job must beOne of the things that “Helper Dogs” try to do is uickly put a new puppy into the foster home once a previous puppy has left so we are uickly introduced to Freddy a bundle of energy Once again we hear all about the doggy anticsThe thought of giving up a puppy after six months is heart breaking and it’s clear from Megan’s writing that she felt this way But this isn’t a depressing read Megan and Ian along with numerous doggy characters show us that there is enough love to get through every situation

    Seriously how could I not pick up a book with this title? And you should see the cover So eff'ing adorable Thankfully the title doesn't fully describe the true story of this book just of the timeline An older couple UK wants to have a baby but can't so they decide to adopt and train helper dogs Of course since they have never had a dog before they get super attached which I have to say now is the most annoying thing about this story It's like surrogacy they really want women who have already finished their family before they go off and have a baby for someone else I think you really should either currently or in the past have owned a dog before you can be a trainer so you know what it's like to give it up Of course a dog isn't as much like a baby and since they are really desperate for helper trainers beggars can't be choosers but I wanted to strangle the couple every single time they thought they could keep their dog in the end even offering a payoff How lame Thankfully in the end they got their own forever dog which is probably better for them anyway I did like reading about the struggles they went through in training the dog as I was going through similar things at the time with my new to me dog Cutesty and just so very British and just an okay read Lamer then I had hoped but a decent read for dog lovers
