BETTY WHITE on EVERY DOG HAS A GIFT: "This book gives us some specific examples of the unique therapy that dogs provide when it is needed most. Enjoy a good read, after which Iím sure you will appreciate your own dog even more.Ē

As anyone who has ever gotten home after a long, hard day and been greeted by their dog and that soulful look of adoration will tell you: Dog love is one of the best kinds of love there is. In Every Dog Has a Gift, founder and executive director of The Good Dog Foundation Rachel McPherson explores the inspiring work that dogs are doing to help humans cope with a wide range of physical, mental, and emotional problems. Millions of dogs around the world are heroes every day. These therapy and service dogs (and often quite ordinary, "uncertified" dogs just like your own):

  • bring their healing presence into hospitals and hospice centers;
  • provide a calm and centering "home base" for autistic children; and
  • serve as the perfect audience for kids who need help practicing and improving their reading skills.

    In telling these stories, Every Dog Has a Gift pays homage to the gift that each and every dog possesses: the ability to bring the healing power of unconditional love into our lives.

Rachel McPherson is founder and director of The Good Dog Foundation, which runs training programs in New York (in NYC, Westchester, and upstate), New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
