From the Publisher

Hurricane Ivan roars into the Gulf of Mexico as Karen Puno and her dog scramble to evacuate a barrier island while a teacher with liver disease is placed on an organ transplant list. But fate is not always kind. It’s not the hurricane which causes Karen’s coma and subsequent organ donation. Nor is it responsible for her battered dog who escapes the crushed metal pile into the blowing sand and gusty wind.

Subsequently, her homeless dog and diverse lives from Indiana to Peru come together, impacting each other in permanent, intense, and heartfelt ways. Is fate kind after all?

A ‘Thousand-Year Storm’ Hits Louisiana

JACK DICKEY IN THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER CITY OF Baton Rouge, La., and the surrounding region, it has been an untempered summer, a season heartbreakingly free of half measures. Three police officers were shot dead in July, days after police had killed a man named Alton Sterling outside a convenience store. Then, on Aug. 12, the rains came. The air had been full of moisture—meteorologists call it “precipitable water”—so all it took was a modest front to make the skies burst. Over a two-day-plus session of thunderstorms, rainfall exceeded 2 ft. in some spots, more than the area’s rivers could bear.

How Franchises Worked Together After Superstorm Sandy

The dogs started arriving the morning after the storm. As people awoke to the reality that their homes were flooded, or damaged by high winds, or that the electricity wouldn't be turned back on anytime soon, they began dropping off their pets at Ed and Janice Saxton's home before seeking out that rare hotel with a vacancy. Soon the Saxtons, owners of a Fetch! Pet Care franchise and one of the lucky families in Bergen County, N.J., that didn't lose power during Superstorm Sandy, were sheltering nine dogs. At one point, Ed remembers, there were six pups crowded onto the foot of their bed. "I don
