Synopsis: Ken Foster knows that a dog can change a person's life. And that several dogs can change even more. For THE DOGS WHO FOUND ME, the author appeared in major media interviews such as NPR's “Fresh Air” with Terry Gross, and received hundreds of letters and stories about other karmic canine rescues. Many of these heartwarming stories are now compiled in this all-new follow-up to the original bestseller. DOGS I HAVE MET introduces us to injured California pit bull Jimmy, among others, as well as to one woman who opened her house to 55 stray dogs. Ken Foster will once again travel the country for interviews and in-store events to promote dog rescue and this all-new national bestseller.
From the Back Cover:
“Our dogs see us through more than they put us through,” Ken Foster writes in Dogs I Have Met, his collection of stories from readers whose lives were changed by the unexpected arrival of a dog in need. Foster's new book introduces us to: a pit bull named Jimmy that is recovering from a hit-and-run in Oakland, California; a woman in Costa Rica who opened her house to fifty-five strays; a pit bull that raises a piglet as its own; a hemophiliac dog trained as a therapist; and the Ninth Ward dogs that returned with their owners to rebuild New Orleans.
Dogs I Have Met celebrates the inspiring transformations that take place at the
intersection between mankind and dog. Of course, Dogs I Have Met also includes updates on Foster's beloved canine family: Brando, Zephyr, and Sula from The Dogs Who Found Me. Ken Foster is the author of The Dogs Who Found Me. He's also the editor of two anthologies, including Dog Culture. His collection of short stories, The Kind I'm Likely to Get, was a New York Times Notable Book. His work has appeared in The New York Times Book Review, The San Francisco Chronicle, McSweeney's, and The Believer. He has taught at The New School, Florida State University, and the University of Southern Mississippi. He lives in New Orleans, with at least three dogs.
