From Library Journal:

One vet, two dogs, two illnesses, two very different outcomes-meet Helen and Cleo. Helen is a ten-year-old black cocker spaniel mix. Apparently left to her own devices for most of her life, she's a survivor and an excellent judge of character. Fourteen-month-old Cleo is a miniature pinscher brought into this world by the finest of breeders and carefully handpicked by her devoted owner. Even at such a young age, Cleo possesses the gift of empathy, providing joy and comfort to everyone she meets. Serendipity and circumstance bring both into the care of Trout, and-although neither dogs nor owners ever meet-the lives of everyone associated with these two fine animals are intrinsically entwined in a true story of tragedy, faith, and renewal. VERDICT Trout, a surgeon at Boston's Angell Animal Medical Center and best-selling author of Tell Me Where It Hurts, delivers his heartfelt account with a humorous introspection that reaffirms the extraordinary level of caring veterinarians can have for their patients. Highly recommended for lovers of animals of all shapes and sizes. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 11/1/09.]-Judy Brink-Drescher, Molloy Coll., Rockville Ctr., NY (c) Copyright 2010.
