The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow: Love & Hope from a Senior Rescue Dog
About the Book

About the Book

(includes over 100 beautiful color photos to complement the narrative)

There is something unique about adopting an animal whose years are limited. It helps us uncover what is really important and to navigate our own humanity.

Meet Annie, an old dog the shelter deemed unadoptable. She opened her third family’s hearts to everyday joys and the growth that can only be experienced through love and loss up close.

Annie’s uplifting story encourages us to take a chance on elderly, disabled, or challenged rescue pets. They reward us with daily lessons in love, resilience, hope, and grace.

Each day with Annie proved that the sun will come out tomorrow, until one day it doesn’t. But even then, when all we have is our beautiful memories of times spent together, the sun will rise. Rescued pets inspire us to live by their example, long after they are gone. We emerge with an expanded heart and an eagerness to welcome more animals and opportunities to love into our lives.

Readers will immediately be drawn to Annie's loving personality, which you’ve conveyed very well, and will be inspired to follow in your footsteps with rescuing senior pets—or even pets in general.

~Christina R.

It’s a beautiful story. I love that you two found each other. Annie was such a lucky dog to have you take such good care of her (and I know you were lucky to have her, too). Your story is so touching. I just love this little dog. She seems to have exceptionally expressive eyes. I feel like she is looking into my soul!

~Stephanie H.

Annie was so real I could pet her. What was also tangible was the spirit and soul of an amazing woman, whose writing can, as Shakespeare said of the poet, 'give to airy nothing a local name and habitation.' You landed it, Kelly.
