It's hard for me to toot my own horn, but I'm thrilled to report I've received some very kind endorsements for my book, Giving Paws, from people I truly admire.

My experience with Henry inspired me to write my second book, GIVING PAWS: Having a Service Dog for a Hidden Disability, due in October 2017. Martha Thompson
