A Beacon Of Hope
Finding Gobi by Dion Leonard is the most heart-warming true story of a long distance runner and a little stray dog in need of a home.
The story is about love. At times it was lacking in the lives of both the author and Gobi. They recognized a need in each other.
Gobi is a little dog with a huge personality. “Any dog that tough deserves a happy ending.” She is a fighter with a sense of loyalty.
Gobi attached herself to Dion Leonard whilst he was competing in a long distance race in China which took in the Gobi desert and hence the name. Gobi saw something attractive in Dion Leonard and by the race’s end, they were inseparable.
A decision to bring Gobi home to Edinburgh required grit, determination, sacrifice and money but “When it comes to family, you don’t count the cost.”
Finding Gobi is a powerful story of love and loyalty, of going the extra mile in the name of love – whether you are a dog or a man. I adored Finding Gobi. I too, fell in love with an adorable stray dog who had a terrible start in life and who deserved a happy ever after ending.
Finding Gobi will tear at your emotions. This book will grip you because you have to find out exactly what happened and when. Living in England, I have vague recollections of seeing this story on the news.
Finding Gobi is a book you will not want to put down… prepare to be sleep deprived!
