To celebrate the release of Lisa Edwards’ new book ‘ Boo! The Underdog With a Heart of Gold’, K9 Magazine is offering 5 lucky readers the chance to win their own copy.The last thing Lisa Edwards needed was a new dog. But when she came across an abandoned litter on Halloween, her heart went out to the runt who walked into walls and couldn’t steady his feet.
Lisa—healing from past abuse and battling constant pain from a chronic medical condition—saw a bit of herself in little Boo. And when he snuggled, helpless, against her, she knew he was meant to be hers.
The dunce of obedience class with poor eyesight and a clumsy gait, Boo was the least likely of heroes. But there’s more to little Boo than meets the eye: he radiates love and empathy. Working as a therapy dog alongside owner Lisa, he has been a true miracle worker, helping countless patients with his kindness, soft fur and warm heart. And for Lisa, suffering from her own health problems, Boo’s presence in her life is an unexpected gift she continues to treasure.
This is the inspiring true story of how one woman and one dog rescued each other—a moving tribute to hope, resilience and the transformative power of unconditional love.
Lisa Edwards is a certified dog trainer and has trained and worked with therapy dogs for many years. She lives with her husband, Lawrence and their three dogs, Atticus, Dante and Boo. In 2008, Boo was honored as one of five finalists for the Delta Society’s national Beyond Limits Award for his therapy work with Lisa.
