Praise for Dogs and the Women Who Love Them


"The rescuing works both ways again in Allen and Linda Anderson's Collection, Dogs and the Women Who Love Them: Extraordinary True Stories of Loyalty, Healing, and Inspiration, as canines who've suffered abuse, neglect or misfortune seek and comfort humans who've endured the same."
Karen Holt, O Magazine


“When asked, ‘Betty, you never remarried! How can you live alone?’, my answer is simple: My golden retriever, Pontiac, is my saving grace.”
--Betty White, actress and author



“These heart-warming stories of dogs and the women who love them solidify the fact that the animal-human bond is so unique and necessary for enhancing one’s life. You’ll find a bit of yourself in each tale.”
--Vanessa Williams, actress and singer



“Perhaps because my older sister was a collie, I am never more myself than when in the presence of a dog. Kudos to Allen and Linda for sharing the myriad of ways dogs bring joy, healing, and gratitude into our lives.”
--Wendie Malick, actor and advocate



“These stories come from a diverse range of women about a diverse range of dogs and experiences, yet they share one common, uplifting theme: how women and dogs inspire and fulfill each other through love, dedication and companionship. The Andersons excel at celebrating that special bond.”
--Debrah R. Schnackenberg, Vice President, Emergency Services, American Humane Association


“Once again the Andersons have produced an inspiring  book for women who love dogs, this time packed with stories and meditations that will make you smile, weep and be moved by scenes from Katrina rescues to the dog that dazzled David Letterman on his Late Night show. If you have a special relationship with your dogs this book is for you.’”
--Linda Tellington-Jones PhD (Hon), founder of the Tellington TTouch Method® and author of 19 books in 13 languages


 “This book is for all dog lovers, and for those who wish to better understand the human-animal bond.  It’s an inspiring read and will make you want to hug your best friend!” --Patrick McDonnell, creator of MUTTS


“Cuddle up with your dog and prepare to be profoundly moved by these heartwarming stories of the special bond that exists between women and their dogs. In reading each story, you will be humbled by the virtuous characteristics of our dog companions who clearly cherish sharing their lives with us. These powerful stories will resonate deeply with anyone who has ever loved a dog.”
--June Cotner, author of Animal Blessings and Dog Blessings,
