Welcome to my stop on the IG feature for The Wonder of Lost Causes by Nick Trout.  Thank you to @tlcbooktours and @williammorrowbooks for my copy!


My Thoughts:  I’m really anxious to read this book for many reasons.  I love animals.  My dogs are my kindred souls.  They are more than my reading buddies.  They have been there through the good and the bad.  They have comforted me during some really tough times.  We have a bond that will never be broken.  Every animal lover I meet has a story to tell about their life with a pet—dog, cat, horse, bird, chicken.  I’ve seen nearly everything at the  animal hospital and everyone I meet there has a story to tell.  Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we shed tears together.


Did you/do you have a dog?  Come and tell me how a dog has helped you through a tough moment or time in your life. 🐶  My English lab, Benny, posed for this picture.  I can’t begin to describe the amount of love in his heart.  He loves everyone and is so gentle with Henry, my elderly and blind dachshund.  If you are able, open your heart and home to a pet in need.  I guarantee the love and loyalty you receive in return will be priceless.


Book Summary: Dr. Kate Blunt will do anything for her son, Jasper. Well, almost anything. Since Jasper has the incurable lung disease cystic fibrosis, Kate’s always told him he couldn’t get a dog. It’s a tough call, but she’s a single mom taking care of a kid who fights for every breath he takes. The daily medical routine that keeps Jasper alive is complicated enough. Worse still, Kate’s personal resolve runs contrary to her work as the veterinarian in charge of a Cape Cod animal shelter, where she is on a mission to find forever homes for dogs in desperate need.


The scarred, mistreated wreck of a dog that turns up doesn’t stand a chance. Named Whistler, he’s too old, too ugly. But the dog forms an instantaneous bond with Jasper. Whistler never makes a sound, yet he speaks to Jasper in a myriad of mysterious ways. The clock’s ticking, the dog’s future hangs in the balance, and Jasper would do anything to find him a home; but Whistler has chosen them—for a reason.🐾🐾
