And so said the dogs . . .

I have long admired the brilliant spirit of rescue dogs and how they are able to live in the moment, regardless of what has come before or what may follow. I have seen dogs raise their heads after severe abuse or injury and marveled at their ability to still believe in goodness. I have held dogs and promised they will never be harmed again. Each one of them found it in themselves to begin again. I doubted I would ever have such grace or courage but after being diagnosed with a brain tumour, I began my own journey of fear, hope and acceptance. I emotionally climbed mountains and stumbled into valleys but whenever I doubted myself, I thought of the dogs. They do not allow the possibility of future fears to defeat them.

Each dog featured in the So Said the dogs . . . collection is a dog that was rescued by Moosonee Puppy Rescue and each came with a story that inspired strength, spirit and wisdom.

We can all learn from our dogs if we just get out of our own way and pay attention.

When you rescue a dog, it rescues you right back.

All proceeds from this collection go directly to the dogs we have flown out of Attawapiskat that are seriously ill or severely injured. And sadly, there are many.

Please contribute to their well-being.
