At times hysterical, tear-jerking, always enthralling, Real Dogs Don’t Whisper is more than a book about dogs – it’s a book about life. Read about four rescue dogs with special needs teaching their human about life, all on a discovery.

Meet a family like no other: Kelly, Mr. MaGoo, Buffy, Carla Mae, and Betty Boop. A girl, her two Lhasa Apsos, one Cocker Spaniel, and one adorable mutt – each with his or her own challenging set of difficulties to overcome. One puppy has serious neurological disorders. Two were severely abused. All are on a journey of discovery. Together, learning love and patience along the way, they have grown and thrived, perhaps none so much as the girl:

“Dr. Hilinski turned to me and said gravely, ‘In thirty minutes, we’ll have to call it, Kelly. I’m sorry.’ I wanted to cry but knew I had to be strong. I just knew that Betty Boop would be able to feel my energy. When it was Gizmo’s time, I told her it was okay to go. Maybe the opposite approach would work this time. With two minutes left in the doctor’s grace period, I leaned in close to Betty Boop. ‘Mommy's here,’ I whispered. ‘It’s not your time to go yet. Not yet… not yet, my Betty Boop.’ Suddenly she inhaled deeply, and then began breathing on her own. It was a miracle. ‘Amazing,’ Dr. Hilinski said, and then he repeated: ‘amazing.’”

Real Dogs Don’t Whisper: Life Lessons from a Larger than Life Dog! (and his Owner), is the true story of a remarkable family as told in a unique way by both Kelly Preston, the owner of the household, and her spunky, hilarious, nine-year old Lhasa Apso, Mr. MaGoo.

About the Author

Kelly Preston is, first and foremost, an animal lover. Raised on a ten-acre property in a small town in Pennsylvania, she grew up with horses, rabbits, and – of course – dogs. When she left home after college, she acquired Gizmo, an irresistible Lhasa Apso that started her on a journey full of joys and sorrows, hopes and tribulations, frustrations, endless lessons in patience, and above all else, love. All of this has come at the hands (more precisely the paws) of Gizmo, Betty Boop, Buffy, Carla Mae, and the inimitable Mr. MaGoo.

Mr. MaGoo is a nine-year-old Lhasa Apso and the book’s co-creator and co-writer. He is, in his own words, “the alpha and omega of all dogs – in the cutest and sparkiest, most fun-loving package ever.” Ignoring Kelly’s persistent eye-rolling, Mr. MaGoo has forged ahead with this project in an attempt to, as he puts it, “present the facts from a dog’s perspective. In other words, the correct, most accurate, most interesting, only-one-that-matters perspective,” to which he adds, simply, “Woof!”
