Review:

In Everyday Heroes: Extraordinary Dogs Among Us, photographer Mary Bloom and author Sherry Bennett Warshauer tell the remarkable stories of service dogs who are guides, healers, therapists, and, in many cases, the bridge to a normal, fulfilling life for many patients and owners. Through the eyes of individuals and owners who have seen firsthand the effects of their special dogs, the reader experiences the many ways in which canines are able to make a difference in our lives. One of the most inspiring stories is of a dog named Guapo, whose sensitivity caused him to be removed from the Guide Dog program, but made him a perfect match for working with emotionally abused children. In fact, for a young boy dealing with his parents' messy divorce, Guapo was the link that allowed him to communicate his feelings. Guapo's head in the boy's lap and a lick on the cheek were the keys necessary for the boy to break down the protective wall he had created and, eventually, to help him understand his emotions. Accompanied by Bloom's stirring photographs, such heartwarming, uplifting stories make this collection perfect not only for animal lovers, but also for anyone who needs to be reminded of the power of compassion and friendship, whether the friend is a relative, a significant other, or a special canine. --Jennifer Pugh
