The Puppy That Came For Christmas by Megan Rix is a wonderful book about having puppies to train as service dogs.
This is a delightful account of first time puppy owners Megan Rix and her husband as they navigate the highs and lows of puppy training.
It is also a book about infertility problems and fostering as the couple are deemed too old to adopt.
Emotions run high throughout the book. There are tears and laughter as the couple bond with their puppy, knowing they will have to let her go after six months, for further training.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it in just one sitting. I loved the inclusion of photos throughout.
Service dogs are amazing. They do quite literally change lives. The trainers are amazing too as they pour their hearts and souls into the puppies, knowing their hearts will break as the puppies move on.
Thank you Megan Rix for sharing your experiences.
