"This book is a tribute to the fact that many of our most effective doctors, nurses, therapists, police officers, emotional counselors, rescue workers, and spiritual teachers have four legs instead of two."
--Amelia Kinkade, author of Straight from the Horse's Mouth: How to Talk to Animals and Get Answers and The Language of Miracles
“Allen and Linda Anderson have gathered charming tales of canine love and loyalty that will remind readers why Fido’s name means faith.”
--Gary Kowalski, author of The Souls of Animals and Goodbye Friend
"The 10th book by Linda and Allen Anderson, founders of the Angel Animals Network (www.angelanimals.net), Angel Dogs with a Mission: Divine Messengers in Service to All Life, collects true stories of the achievements of working dogs."
--By Dick Donahue, Publishers Weekly, 9/1/2008
"As teachers, friends, therapists, healers, and rescuers, dogs enrich our lives immensely. They don't ask much in return -- a tummy rub, a smile, a game of fetch. Our world would be much poorer without dogs like those in this book and our homes."
--Nancy Peterson, Feral Cat Program Manager, The Humane Society of the United States
"Read this book and share it widely. Read these stories to kids. Angel Dogs with a Mission will change your life and the lives of those with whom you share it."
--Marc Bekoff, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals, Animals Matter, Animals at Play: Rules of the Game, and Wild Justice: Reflections on Empathy, Fair Play, and Morality in Animals and editor of The Encyclopedia of Human-Animal Relationships (http://literati.net/Bekoff)
"Angel Dogs with a Mission: Divine Messengers in Service to All Life is a book every animal lover should read. A collection of extraordinary stories about heroic working dogs, it reminds us how dogs enrich our lives...and for little in return. The world would be a poorer place without our four-legged angel friends."
"Founders of the Angel Animals Network and the authors of several books dealing with our spiritual bond with domestic animals, Allen and Linda Anderson manage to remind us who some of the real angels in our lives are. In Angel Dogs with a Mission, the Andersons turn their attention to canines with special purposes, such as service dogs, dogs who perform animal-assisted therapy, police dogs, cancer-detecting pups, and search-and-rescue dogs. As with their previous anthologies, this inspiring collection of stories speaks to the heart the spirit."
--Sally Rosenthal, "The Animals' Bookshelf," Best Friends Magazine, November/December 2008
"Allen and Linda Anderson, founders of the Angel Animals Network and inspirational speakers, present dogs who have saved lives, given hope to troubled teenagers, and have brought joy to the injured; includes the story of a Labrador retriever that can pick up a phone for its owner who suffers from muscular dystrophy."
--Alex Moore, FOREWORD Book Review Editor
