Another Good Dog by Cara Sue Achterberg
Another Good Dog
by
Cara Sue Achterberg
  
"Volunteering for a dog rescue organization provides novelist Achterberg (Practicing Normal) ample material in this chatty, earnest memoir of her first 18 months as a foster pet owner. Following the death of her family’s 17-year-old hound, Achterberg decides to foster rescue dogs in an effort to “ease the hurt in [her] heart.” Her plan is to “essentially give them a tryout, and keep the one that’s best,” while also finding distraction from worry over the reception of her debut novel, and blunt the pain of her eldest son leaving for college. But each adoption means “coming to terms with saying goodbye,” a sadness only alleviated by the arrival of another rescue: “This was how bad the addiction had become.” As expected, the narrative revolves around tales of dogs and puppies, some sweet like skinny Frank with the long tongue, some heart-tugging like Momma Bear with her mutilated ears and tail. What’s unexpected are Achterberg’s personal reveals: her husband’s “It has to stop” ultimatum, her emotionally intense teenage daughter’s participation in a beauty pageant, and her younger son’s health complications. Some readers may find the “Rescue. Foster. Adopt” drumbeat too repetitive, but the stories and photos will delight those who have a soft spot for dogs and the dog rescue mission."
  
Sincere thanks, Cara, foster to foster, for graciously donating your wonderful experience in this Autographed  book.  Hopefully, all who read this master piece will realize the priceless value of "fosterhood."   You have made such a difference in the lives of so many dogs and it is dearly appreciated and applauded.
PLEASE BE GENEROUS WITH YOUR BIDDING...THE DOGS IN RESCUE ARE WORTH IT.

Finding Sarah by Sarah Ferguson
Finding Sarah
by 
Sarah Ferguson
"Finding Sarah is an extraordinarily personal memoir by Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. As she spends time with Dr. Phil McGraw, she gains a new understanding of her relationship with herself and with others. Suze Orman helps Sarah unravel the poisonous money issues she suffers from. Martha Beck teaches her how let go of her negative self-image. Many other friends and experts populate these pages and you will meet them all. Sarah's journey, in so many ways, is everyone's journey and as she shares her story with us she also shares the advice and wisdom she benefited from along the way. Her struggles with adversity have taught her that life's lows can become a source of strength and courage. She knows, first hand, what it means to feel lost and she also knows that it is never too late to find your way back, to attain your goal, to take back control of your life and to make a special dream come true. Through intimate diary excerpts and personal emails from friends and family, Sarah opens herself unsparingly. On every page of this book you will hear from Sarah's friends and guides, her "real-life angels," as they help her get to the root of her problems—from comfort eating to self-loathing, from reckless over-spending to notorious mishaps. You will learn from them, as she did. In this way, Sarah hopes not only to talk to you as a friend but to inspire you, through her own experiences, to look closely at your own life and where you wish to improve it, then to encourage you to follow your instincts and find your true path. Sarah Ferguson did, and so can you. "
 
This autographed and interesting read was brought to you by a friend of rescue to help support the Sanctuary program within IAMRA.  They are never too old to need love so please be generous.  Thank you for your support.
