From the Publisher

"Over the years, animal rescue and adoption have transformed my life over and over and over," says author Devon O'Day. In My Angels Wear Fur, her first collection of stories that chronicle the many animals she has rescued, Devon O'Day tells readers about:

Tennessee Tess: A stray dog delivered to her front door by a man working on a construction crew in the neighborhood and who ended up living the glamorous life in Hollywood with O'Day's sister, actress Faith Ford.

The Boxer of Mercy: A brindle boxer who delivers dogs in need to O'Day's front door. As soon as he knows the other dog is in good hands, the boxer disappears.

More than 30 well-written stories will warm your heart and make you understand what O'Day means when she says, "There is a God-like quality in animals. They love without judgment. They are loyal and caring and they see through each of us...to the hidden souls of our real beings."

There are the private zoo owners who’ve dropped by to size up the mangy lions and monkeys, and young couples sneaking furtive kisses in the shadows, ignoring the animals. Yet here in Baghdad’s largest beast bazaar, it’s families and earnest-looking businessmen who outnumber the gawkers and flirts. And they have no interest in exotic flora and fauna. Darting among the cages, they eagerly scan mutt after mutt, dismissing each in turn. “Too small,” Mohammed Salama, a car salesman, says of the Ja

Half Their Size Pets!

Buddy, the Australian shepherd Buddy was 180 lbs. when he came to Hull’s Haven Border Collie Rescue in Winnipeg, Man., in March 2015. His elderly owners had become too ill to take care of the 6-year-old dog. “Buddy could only walk about five feet before his tongue would start to turn purple,” says Samantha Gagnon, a volunteer who fostered Buddy for 10 months. “We were very concerned about him having a heart attack.” Gagnon put him on a strict diet of high-protein dog food with raw veggies for a snack and encouraged him to walk around her backyard. After losing nearly 100 lbs. he got skin-remo

Rumor Has It!

KELLI BENDER Every dog has its day. Rumor’s day just happened to be bigger than most: The 5-year-old German shepherd won Best in Show at the 141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Valentine’s Day at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, topping runner-up Adrian the Irish setter and five other dogs. Rumor’s handler and co-owner Kent Boyles brought her out of retirement in January to compete in the show. She had just missed taking the title in 2016, winning her group but losing Best in Show to CJ the German shorthaired pointer. Now Rumor is saying goodbye to the ring for good and kicked off
