Read about the people who rescued these beautiful dogs, and how the dogs rescue their owners by filling their lives with love, exercise, humor, and joy. My grand doggy Rocky Louise, a white boxer, belongs to my daughter in Mpls MN. Hi Rocky-girl! A professional photographer travelled the country photographing these smart and special dogs. Could we see a photo of the cover of this lovely book? Or the back cover which is great too.

This is a wonderful book! In addition to the beautiful photos and touching stories of the dogs, it includes facts and common myths about deaf dogs.
