A Dog’s Way Home by Bobbie Pyron

Posted by | March 3, 2011 | No Comments

Happy Publication Week to librarian and author Bobbie Pyron and A DOG’S WAY HOME!  It’s now available for your libraries!

Editor extraordinaire Molly O’Neill shared her thoughts on dogs and this lovely story – we thought you’d love to read this:

I like dogs. But I’ve never quite been what you’d call a dog person. We had a dog growing up, but he was more my brothers’ dog than mine. Working on A DOG’S WAY HOME changed something for me, though. Somewhere in the midst of the rounds of editing it, I realized I was starting to pay attention to dogs differently. I was noticing them in a way I never had, seeing them sitting outside of coffee shops and restaurants, and on street corners, as they often do in a walkable neighborhood like mine. And I was doing more than noticing them: I was pausing to say hello; I was wondering what inner dialogue was going through their minds as they waited patiently (or not) for their owners. Most of all, I was stopping to observe their interactions with their owners on the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan. That’s the power of A DOG’S WAY HOME—it makes you understand, so vividly, the bond that exists between dogs and their people. And really, that’s the power of a good book, right? It changes something inside of you, so that you’re not quite the same person you were before, once you’ve read it.  I think everyone should have the chance to fall in love with this book and its tribute to loyalty, to perseverence, and to having profound faith in those we love.
