Lost Souls: FOUND! Inspiring Stories About Labrador Retrievers is a heartwarming, thought-provoking compilation of over 50 true stories that addresses the cruelty of animal neglect and abuse and the joy rescued dogs bring to their new homes. This book is a must-read for Labrador Retriever lovers and people who are considering adopting dogs. A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF PROCEEDS FROM EVERY SALE IS DONATED BACK TO LABRADOR RESCUE GROUPS.
Excerpt: “Shortly after adopting Cooper my mother visited. Before running to the store, she’d pulled 24 meatballs out of the freezer and placed them in a dish by the stove. We returned to find the dish where we left it, but no meatballs (surprise!). Several months later she visited again – this time putting a baked ham in the same dish the meatballs had been stolen from. Having to again leave the house, I wisely hid the ham in the laundry room. Nevertheless, we came home to find it, along with the glass dish, in the family room! How did Cooper get the dish off the dryer without breaking the glass? Where was all the grease? Only Cooper knew for sure and he wasn’t telling. But my wild, young Lab was training me… Next time I’ll remember to close the laundry room door.” -Mary Campisi

She came & left as the alpha female!
Working to help lost furry souls can certainly show you the horrific side of human beings. Learning of Kyla and her Lost Souls Found books restores that faith in the human race. I have met (in person or through emails) some of the most generous human angels while trying to help dogs. Ghandi said "the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." PLEASE, if you haven't considered rescuing or adopting a dog, you are missing one of life's greatest pleasures. Thank you, Kyla, for this great series of stories!
This little book takes a peek into the frequently chaotic, trying world of owning a rescue. The frustration and challenges can be many but the ultimate reward and joy shines through in each and every word for those who are willing to be patient, allowing the animal time to trust again.
Dogs thrown away like yesterdays trash; abused, neglected, starving, or simply unwanted, are capable of giving unconditional love from the bottom of big hearts if just one person comes along who will open their own heart. It has been said many times that a rescued dog "knows" it has found its way home. All of these Labs are home.
What has become one of my favorites, "Jail Dog", the story of Chase, a starving 6-month old, who is placed into a correctional facility for training with the hope of being adopted. Charles, the inmate responsible for Chase, wrote that he had been in many programs designed for self-improvement but not until A Fresh Start was he proud of anything he had ever done. He never cared about anything or loved anyone until the dogs he helped. He rescued Chase but Chase helped to rescue Charles.
"Discovering Beau," describes the love an older dog has to share. The photo of Beau on the plane is absolutely beautiful. The expression on his sweet face pulls at your heart. This one is close to my heart as I lost my 151/2-year-old chocolate Lab not long ago. She grew from a 7-week-old pup into a gray-muzzled old lady with grace and dignity. Adopting an older dog has special rewards all of its own. "A Story of Circumstance," tells of Sir George, a blind, severely neglected 18-month old Lab. The man, who had experienced his own serious medical struggles, found he had common ground with George, took a chance and ended up with a life long companion.
And so the stories go. You will laugh, you will cry. You will learn about rescue efforts, the breed with all of the wonderful, goofy, irresistible characteristics of the Labrador Retriever. They aren't the number one breed by chance. You will also, by purchasing this book, be giving a donation to Lab rescue organizations.
If you own a rescued Lab as I do (2), or just simply love the breed as I do, then you will want to read these funny, sometimes sad, heart warming stories about life with an adopted Lab. You might even recognize your own Lab experience in one of the "tails". You could even find your faith restored in the human race, so capable of cruelty, yet also capable of wonderful acts of compassion and love.
You don't have to be a lab owner to love this book; it is a great read for any animal lover. Best of all, proceeds from this, and other Happy Tails books, benefit the groups who rescue these sweet and deserving animals.
