    In this beautifully illustrated, uplifting book, author Lufkin and photographer Diana Walker team up again to tell the stories of rescued dogs (and one cat). Like their previous books (Found Dogs, 1997; Second Chances, 2005), this one presents a collection of essays about rescued dogs, illustrated with black-and-white photos. The dogs' stories are told in the first person by their owners, revealing what is known of their backgrounds and what they are doing today. All of the dogs are workers—some as therapy dogs for hospice patients, mental patients, or children in read-to-the-dog programs; others are search-and-rescue dogs or assistance dogs. We read of abused dogs who learned to overcome their traumatic pasts, amputees that bring hope to wounded soldiers, and timid dogs that have blossomed into love sponges. Their owners often tell of how the dogs have changed their lives or the lives of others. Photojournalist Walker's snapshots show each dog doing what he or she does best. Oh, and that one cat? She's a double amputee who loves to visit hospice patients and is a wonderful listener when she's read to. Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.
