    ITEM#: 11981651

    Mark Levin, while known as a lawyer and nationally syndicated broadcaster, considers himself first and foremost a dog lover. In 2004, Mark’s family added a new member to their bunch—a beautiful, Spaniel-mixed dog they named Sprite. With his beautiful face and soft, huggable fur, Sprite immediately bonded with the Levin family.

    But on Halloween night, just three weeks after being adopted, Sprite collapsed and had to be rushed to the animal hospital in what would turn out to be the first of many such visits—and a difficult, heart-wrenching journey for the entire family.

    Over the next two years, Sprite’s health deteriorated, but his spirit remained high and his beauty and grace continued to inspire, until the holiday season of 2006, when the Levin family had to say a final goodbye to their beloved pet.Rescuing Sprite is a stunningly intimate revelation of the strong love that can develop between a family and a pet, and the realization, as Mark Levin puts it, that “in the end, we humans are the lucky ones.”?

      This book is for everyone who is guardian to an animal who has been rescued, anyone who has been guardian to an animal that has been loved, and anyone who has lost a best friend. The writing style is sometimes a little difficult to get through, but the heart, the emotion, of the story makes up for it. Perfection is the inner core, that purest of being. Sprite shows us that. I felt like Sprite was mine. When I feel like the story is my life, when I feel like the dog, the cat, the horse is mine - that's a good book!

      I love Mark Levin and what he stands for. This book is VERY well written and if you love dogs, then you are going to cry. Just about guaranteed. A very heartwarming saga of his dog Sprite and the difficulties Mark endured while caring for his "best friend". Definitely a "must read".
