When I head out on vacation, along with doing a lot of kayaking, I look forward to relaxing on the beach and spending quiet evenings in the cottage reading. One of the books I took with me on a recent vacation to Maine was Jacqueline Sheehan’s novel Lost & Found, a New York Times Bestseller.
My book recommendations are usually related to dog training and canine healthcare, but this book which eloquently demonstrates the power of the human-canine bond to comfort, love, and heal is sure to please. It’s a real page-turner and definitely one to add to your list of must reads. Lloyd, the Black Lab, exhibits all the makings of a good therapy dog by helping Rocky, the main character, overcome her grief caused by the sudden death of her husband at the age of forty-two, and by befriending a teenage girl with an eating disorder. If you haven’t gone on vacation yet, throw it in your suitcase. If you’ve already been, read it next weekend.
