Here's a pep talk between covers, a compendium of stories about dogs who, through accident or birth, suffer disabilities that affect their movement, but not their moods.

Reviewed by Judy Francis

There are numerous books and stories about animals helping their handicapped human counterparts. But it is rare to see a book filled with handicapped dogs who need our help. Extraordinary Dogs is a compilation of 50 stories about dogs with disabilities, such as blindness, those that are paralyzed and some with only three legs. Some of the stories were hard to read, like the tear-jerker about Jinx, a rambunctious three-legged terrier mix that was dumped and abandoned on the side of the road. Despite the adversity these pups faced, they were still able to find families who loved them unconditionally. This is more a book of the extraordinary people who welcomed these animals into their lives despite their obvious handicaps. These people are also truly extraordinary!
LONG ISLAND PRESS BOOK REVIEW
Extraordinary Dogs: Inspirational Stories of Dogs With Disabilities
Joyce Darrell, The Lyons Press

Never underestimate the life force of a disabled pet. Extraordinary Dogs celebrates special pets nationwide that have shown outstanding courage in adversity, and their amazing caretakers. Compassionate author Darrell tells us what to expect from a disabled pet (it's never too late to adopt one), sharing her experiences with her beloved Kiri, left without the use of her hind legs after it was hit by a car. Now recovered, Kiri uses a wheelchair and has made a triumphant return home. Also included is LI hero golden retriever Gina, who was paralyzed after a hit-and-run accident. Thanks to Long Island Golden Retriever Rescue and loving owner Debbie Poznack-Olsen, Gina has recovered, uses a wheelchair and doesn't even recognize her disability. These dogs' quality of life have been preserved by understanding owners and superior veterinarians. The heartwarming stories confirm that these extraordinary dogs are just that. A must-read for animal lovers. Proceeds go to Pets with Disabilities.
