10 x 8 landscape – 176 Pages
The dogs that change lives!
Fifty adorable stories, beautifully written by acclaimed author Nancy Silcox and portrayed by award-winning artist, Jacqueline Gori, and her art students, who all donated their time and talent to create a book that will give someone with a disability their freedom back through funding a service dog.
Now you get to be the most important part of the project, by buying this book. But prepare yourself! Not only will you change someone’s life, but you’ll be dazzled by the Labradors of Cooperslane Kennels, the dogs that have transformed the families in this book.
Read stories that will have you falling off your chair laughing, then reaching for a Kleenex. Your ooohs and aaaahs and hahahas will be worth every penny you’ve spent.

In-Service Portraits of dogs that change lives
Your ‘oohs and aahs’ will change the world.
Read the stories of brave people and see the beautiful portraits of the doggies who have rescued them.
This book has it all. It is real, it is moving, it is for everyone – from artists and art appreciators who will savour smart illustrations, to animal lovers who can marvel at the stories of these wonderful pooches. To anyone who just wants to help change the lives of people who desperately need help.
Inspired by her own life struggle and recovery with the help of her service dog Max, artist Jacqueline Gori birthed this project so others can know the life-changing experience of having a service dog – a furry, four-legged friend who will care for and love their owner. And because with every book purchased all the profits go to National Service Dogs, your support will mean more service dogs go into the homes and hearts of people who desperately need them.
