Meet the Author

Laurie Morrow, in this revised collection, has retained these writers and authors while omitting those whose work didn't "travel as exceedingly well through time."

In their place she includes engaging stories of a more serious bent by both famed and newer writers.

These focus on working dogs that are also companions and helpmates.

All the stories in Cold Noses and Warm Hearts share the same theme, whether underscored by humor or deep emotion: the strong, enigmatic bond between dog and master.
