War is a terrible thing, but sometimes miraculous stories spring forth from the tragedy. Such is the case of A Portrait of Grandma's Dog. A work of fiction, Janet Ward based this novella on the story of her mother-in-law, Erna Ward. Ward captures and presents the emotions of a woman who transitions from childhood in Germany of World War II to old age and grandchildren. Then there is the almost unbelievable coincidence of an old neighbor coming across a pencil sketch of a German shepherd in a bar in Germany. After a seemingly impossible and long search across the Atlantic Ocean and into America, an old friend and neighbor found the artist and reunited her with a drawing that she had finished more than 50 years previously. Janet Ward pays honor and tribute to the generation that came through the terrible ordeal of a world war. They were the people who made a new world out of the ashes of the old. Their stories are some of the very best we, the younger generations, can learn from.
