About Lisa Loeb and Dog Ambassadors
I traveled throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania, from Philadelphia to the countryside and the counties of Chester, Delaware, Bucks and Montgomery with camera in hand. My journalism background helped, but I relied mostly on my gut to tell me who to approach.
The stories included in Dog Ambassadors come from a variety of settings, some well-established facilities, rescue, therapy, protection, education, and some from my neighborhood or just chance meetings on the street. All of the dogs are ambassador dogs who help humans at one or more levels, emotionally, intellectually and physically.
Dogs are ambassadors to the world and our own local communities. They come to serve and love us as only they know how. Accompanied by 175 color images, discover the remarkable connection between dogs and humans through the inspiring stories of 24 dogs and the owners whose lives they have made better. Meet Paddington, the official greeter at Thorncroft Equestrian Center, and Cody, a search and rescue dog. Learn the story behind Pals for Life, an organization that provides therapy animal visits, and Francisvale, a safe haven for abandoned dogs. The stories range from service dogs that make life easier for those in need to much-loved household pets that offer love and companionship each day for family members. Dog lovers everywhere will delight in these wonderfully witty and entertaining stories.
