“Alex: The Double-Rescue Dog”, by Geri Gale, is the heartfelt story of a small dog named Alex. A less than perfect canine specimen, he more than makes up for his physical flaws with his loving heart and endearing personality.
Alex’s life gets off to a bumpy start. He is wrenched from his mother and siblings at an early age, he experiences being loved briefly, but he’s ultimately abandoned and forced to survive on his own.
Thankfully, he is rescued by the author and her partner. With them he finds his happily ever after in his forever home where he discovers that he, too, can be a rescuer.
Writing in Alex’s voice, Geri Gale makes complicated topics like love, loss, marriage, and cancer understandable and endurable when seen from the genuine, guileless point of view of a dog.
A page turner, and at times a nail biter, this story is heartwarming and true. Written during Gale’s real life cancer treatment, much of it takes place in Seattle.
“Alex: The Double-Rescue Dog” is a little gem – beautiful to look at, with luminous illustrations by Pamela Farrington, and a great read on many levels, with a valuable message for children, adults, and dog lovers of all ages.
“Alex” will win a permanent spot in your heart and on your bookshelf.
