Overview

An uncommon dog. A determined owner.

And their shared belief in possibility.




Rugby Jones had it all. Top dog on a beautiful Pennsylvania horse farm, keeping the cat and dogs in line, helping his human mom Claudia with the horses — rascally Rugby lived the quintessential dog’s life. Until that tragic day when another dog injured him beyond repair. Rugby Jones was paralyzed, his lower back ruined; put him out of his misery, everyone said. But Claudia refused to accept common wisdom. She knew Rugby Jones had the will and courage to overcome. If they both worked hard together — the way they always did — Claudia and Rugby would find a way for him to walk again. Written in Rugby Jones’ lovably cocky six year-old voice, The "Tail" of Rugby Jones will captivate children and adults alike with its message of:



- hope in a hopeless circumstance

- courage to be different in a “let’s be alike” world

- determination to take the "dis” out of disability

- unexpected trust that comes from unconditional love



“Rugby Jones is indeed an inspiring and motivating dog! He teaches us that life is what we make it, and it has nothing to do with disability. I love his “can-do” attitude. He is a great example that everyone should follow. So, live life to the fullest and never give up, no matter what.”

—Gloson Teh, 11 year-old Malaysian author of Creative and Funny Poetry For Kids
