    A DOG NAMED LEAF: The Hero from Heaven Who Saved My Life
    By Allen Anderson with Linda Anderson
    Lyons Press (November 6, 2012)

    THE MOST UNUSUAL DOG BOOK YOU WILL EVER READ

    Allen and Linda Anderson adopted a traumatized one-year-old cocker spaniel who had been abandoned. Soon, the troubled dog they named “Leaf” turned their home into a war zone. Although Leaf and Allen were forging a friendship with visits to dog parks and bonding time, Leaf’s emotional issues overwhelmed the couple. Shortly after Leaf’s arrival, Allen, who had spent eight years as a big city police officer and survived so many close calls that Linda called him “Miracle Man,” received a diagnosis from his doctor that made him think his luck had finally run out. Allen had an unruptured brain aneurysm that could be fatal, and the surgery to repair it might leave him debilitated. Having seen his father live for years with the effects of a massive stroke, he dreaded that the worst fate might not be death. What Allen didn’t know is that he and Leaf, like comrades facing the ultimate battle, would be there for each other with the miracle of this man and this dog coming together at exactly the right time.

    What are your tips for reassuring yourself and your pets while you are away?

    A SUMMER OF TRAVEL

    During the warmer months many will go on trips, vacations, and travel for work. There are occasion when we (Linda and Allen) travel and we always make sure our animal family members are taken care of if one of us is not home with them. When one of us is traveling and the other is at home, the absent partner calls.

    We're not only checking in with each other but we take this opportunity to exchange small talk with the dog and cat. All right, it would sound silly to someone overhearing us chatting with Leaf while his tail circles as he wags

    If you have a speakerphone for this type of call, that is even better. Then the at-home recipient doesn't have to sit for five minutes holding a phone to the dog's ear. (Our bird hears telephone conversations all the way from the other room!)

    If you have a pet-sitter (who won't think you're nuts), you can arrange to phone home when the sitter will be at the house. Then your animals will get their daily dose of love and encouragement.

    If you have a video cam, you can videotape yourself talking to your dog or cat and have it played once a day by the at-home person or pet sitter. (Record an audiocassette tape also so you can speak soothingly and reduce your pet's separation anxiety.) The reassurance of your voice and image will be the highlight of your animal companion's day.

    What are your tips for reassuring yourself and your pets while you are away?

    What is it about women and dogs?

    Monday, March 23, 2009, 3:17 PM [General]
    Posted By: AngelAnimals

    Awhile back, there was a poll that found women preferred the company of their dogs to their spouses or significant others. Guess the human males growled more than their canine competitors for female affection.

    To be serious, though, over the years since we have been collecting and writing stories for Angel Animals books, etc. we've observed how deeply women and dogs bond. They seem to bring out the best in each other.

    Now, we're giving all of you the chance to enter our Dogs and the Women Who Love Them True Story Contest. We're looking for stories about canine-female teams that formed deep bonds of companionship and led to compassionate and courageous acts of kindness or service.

    Think about some of the following scenarios that you may have been part of and see if you want to write a story about any of them:

    * Has a dog(s) been there for a woman during challenging times or major events in her life?
    * Have there been times when a dog has protected people from danger or warned them of possible danger?
    * Have a woman and a dog teamed up to fulfill a life purpose and/or perform extraordinary acts of service?

    This contest hopes to find life stories of remarkable women with dogs who are fulfilling their callings to the benefit of themselves and others. It will also focus on finding the best stories about dogs' unconditional love and acceptance. From dogs as protectors to partners in the dance of life, the contest will honor a relationship that is like no other.

    Any contest entries, but especially those of the winners, will be considered for possible publication in the new book Dogs and the Women Who Love Them by Allen and Linda Anderson to be published by New World Library in Fall 2010. Previous books in the Angel Animals series have included many stories that were contest entries.

    We're looking forward to reading your stories, so go to the website, www.angelanimals.net/cont... />sts.html and fill out the contest entry form. Send in your stories.

    What have dogs taught you about love, life, and yourself?

    Why Share Your Animal Stories?

    Tuesday, March 3, 2009, 9:59 AM [General]
    Posted By: AngelAnimals

    Last week, we got a call from a man who had been to the Angel Animals website and read stories there. Some of the stories might have come from you. We wanted to let you know one example of how sharing your uplifting animal stories helps people.

    The man had recently endured a terrible loss. He'd found his son dead in the young man's home. The son's dog had remained by his side for three days. He wouldn't even leave for food or water. The dog howled when the son's body was taken away, grieving over his dear friend.

    The dog's display of emotions and loyalty had moved the father so much that he went on the Internet to search for information about dogs. When he found our website, he read through stories. He said, "I never knew what dogs are capable of till now."

    He had called us because the stories inspired him to donate to organizations that train service dogs. Linda gave him a couple of suggestions and told him what keywords to use for finding such charities.

    So there you have it -- one more reason for sharing your stories in the Angel Animals Story of the Week and for our books. One more reason for telling your stories about the incredible benefits of human-animal companionship to family, friends, and anyone else who will listen.

    When you make your stories public, you affect people and animals in ways you will probably never know about. But someday, when you have the opportunity to look back on your life, a Divine hand may show you all the connecting threads that came about through an animal who gave love and a human who shared that love with others.

    What stories would you like to share?
