Charlotte the Wonder Dog
Written with wit and insight, this writer’s biography of her dog expands the parameters of the "I love my dog" genre to create a story appealing not only to dog lovers but also to any reader who enjoys a well-turned phrase and a clever take on the timeless story of a Cinderella: A mutt from the dog pound makes good.
Profits from Charlotte the Wonder Dog’s biography are donated to Cause for Paws (CFP) in Harpers Ferry, WV. This non-profit, all volunteer hospice/sanctuary helps homeless injured, severely sick and handicapped cats and dogs. Charlotte, once an orphan herself, is a frequent visitor to CFP and is featured on its logo and T-shirt.
CFP is not a facility for healthy but unwanted animals. At any one time, CFP may have more than 30 dogs and 100 cats—animals that are seen as useless and expendable by many because of their disabilities or health issues. Some can be re-homed, but most cannot. CFP provides holistic care, a quality of life and, when the time comes, a dignified death; often that ‘time’ is slow in coming. Miracle stories abound that demonstrate an animal’s will to live and its joyous response to kindness and care, despite a history of cruelty or neglect in some cases. All donations to CFP are used for the care of the animals. www.causeforpaws.org
