We joyfully dedicate this book
to the great dogs and people in our lives,
and to our infinitely greater God,
who made us all.
How fitting that the dogs we love are pack animals. We are too. This book would never have been birthed otherwise. Thanks to all who lent a paw by sharing their stories or praying for us. Thanks to our agents, Mark and Janet Sweeney, who shared our vision and helped make it come true. Special thanks to Nicole Overbey, DVM, for giving our manuscript a top-notch veterinary checkup. And huge gratitude to our amazing team at Harvest House Publishers! You win best in show, and we are so blessed to have you!
Most of all, we are eternally grateful to our awesome God, who gave us dogs and stories and invites us into His!
