My husband and I inherited a very troubled Sheltie dog, also named Sandy, by coincidence when his cousin died suddenly. As time went on we discovered she had "every behavioral problem in the book", but overcoming all those challenges was very rewarding for my whole family and proved what the power of love can do not only for our canine friends but for us as human beings. With a lot of patience and compassion and understanding we managed to turn a fearful, very shy but also aggressive dog into a loving and confident proud sheepdog!
Sandy "the Sheltie" was responsible for turning me into an animal activist and as a result I wrote my memoir so that I can inspire people to never give up on a difficult dog. I also helped to start a non-profit animal charity Operation Blankets of Love by being its very first volunteer to bring comfort to homeless animals in shelters, fosters, rescues, sanctuaries and also help homeless people keep their beloved pets.
I look forward to the day when every household has a pet and realize how good they are for our health. I especially look forward to the day when animal homelessness and abuse is a thing of the past...

Over four million animals are put to death each year in the U.S. alone because they are abandoned and unwanted.
