At the upper right hand corner of the blog, you can view a picture of Daisy, a little black pit bull saved by Home Free Rescue in Red Bank, NJ. She is now safely in a loving foster home where she is wonderfully affectionate and happy. Daisy had been stabbed in the face and shot in one leg, which she still may lose. The perpetrators were never found. This is the sort of cruelty case shelters and rescue groups see every day. Those are the kind of injuries they treat every day. Of course, that costs money.

Below Daisy's picture is the book cover for my Kindle novella, Dancer Dog. It's the true story of my own first rescue, that of my beloved pit bull, Dancer. It was through adopting this amazing dog that I developed an interest in animal rescue. And though it's often tragic and hard, it's the best thing I have done in my life.

If you'd like a copy of Dancer Dog, please click on the book cover to be taken to Amazon. The cost is $2.50 and all proceeds will go to Home Free Rescue. Pretty cheap to help save a life, don't you think?


  1. Wanted to update everyone who is following Daisy's story. She had her surgery ($900+) and then went for recuperation at a friend's farm in South Carolina. She finally received clearance from her orthopedic doctor and made the long journey to New Jersey, where she was in a foster home for less than two days before she was adopted by a lovely couple who recognized what a gem she is! They are prepared to spoil her rotten for the rest of her life, including vacations in the Hamptons! (My dogs often make out better than me - how does that work??)Thank you to everyone who prayed for her, donated for her, and worried after her!

  2. Yay, Daisy. She has been through a lot. So good to know there was a happy ending and her ortho vet cleared her. Wishing a happy new life to this special girl.
