Story and photo submitted by Dorothy

Hello Jane,

What a pleasure it was to meet you at the Kempton Hotel in Vero Beach at your book signing.

A friend and I were visiting friends and lucked out that you were there at the same time. I looked at the pictures in the book right away but just picked it up again and read every wonderful heart-lifting story.  I asked you to sign it to me and to my son , Blair and daughter-in- law, Christy. They will be owners of the book this week when I visit them

They have 4 dogs and 2 cats at given times . I am attaching a photo I used in an invitation for a brunch after my husband died and I was moving to new territories.

The dog on the right had been caged and sent back to the humane society over a period of 6 years. The collie on the left, was beginning to stress after a too long a time in the shelter. The little one on the left was given up by her owner due to necessity when they were living in Newfoundland and the one on the right was purchased . They are all loved and cared for beautifully. My friend who loves her dogs told me she is putting Blair and Christy in her will to get the dogs.

You have expanded my world with your book. Thank you.
