Description

The pages of this book are filled with true accountings and memories of a rescue that saved dozens of dogs doomed to die, and also includes the happy follow up of more than thirty of
them and their new families two years later. I have never attempted such a
project, I am a literary nobody from nowhere who adopted a rescue dog, who in
turn inspired a dream I was driven to follow. The Mile 26 story will now live
forever as I believe it should, reaching the hands and hearts of many who by reading,
can share this event and the joy it brought to what has become a huge family .
The accomplishments of these dogs, considered not worth saving by some, has
inspired many individuals to see that there is always hope, always the ability
to change what needs changing and mostly to believe there are no obstacles in
life that can’t be overcome. Live shave changed direction, become fulfilled and
are just plain better because of the magic these dogs brought with them from
the bush, north of Cochrane Ontario, in the summer of 2010. My hope is that
this story will inspire others, in whatever degree of involvement fits, to make
a commitment of time and responsibility to better the welfare of our animal
companions. By purchasing this book you are generously contributing toward the
future saving and care of many animals who otherwise would have no hope for the
good life they deserve. 100% of the profits raised by this book are being

The author: Needless to say
I am an animal lover, but also a wife, mom and grateful companion of three
lovely dogs and two cats. Born, raised and married in southern Ontario, we moved
to Alberta in the early 80’s, returning to Ontario in 2007. My real involvement
with animal rescue and welfare began with the Mile 26 rescue, which opened my
eyes greatly to the varying needs of so many. I have learned the importance of
being a voice for decent animal welfare and have discovered we are most
fulfilled when the day ends knowing we helped to save the life of even just
one.
