Life in the First Draft with Second Chance Dogs and Little Miracles along the Way

Do you believe in second chances? Real Dogs Don't Whisper book is about second chances and miracles. This very touching book will melt your heart as you read about four rescue dogs that were ready to be given up on because they have special needs; they teach their human about life, love, and hope. Real Dogs Don’t Whisper: Life Lessons from a Larger than Life Dog! (and his Owner), is the true story of a remarkable family as told in a unique way by both Kelly, the owner of the household, and her spunky, hilarious, nine-year old Lhasa Apso, Mr. MaGoo. The narrative is at times tear-jerking, at times hysterical, and always enthralling.

Life in the First Draft
Hi, allow me to introduce myself; I am Kelly Preston, author of Real Dogs Don’t Whisper, this is my first book and I am still surprised at myself that I took a vision and made it possible.  It all started one morning in December 2010, I had a “light bulb” moment that I wanted to share an incredible, rewarding journey with special need pets.  The goal was to inspire the audience that no matter what may face us, with determination, unconditional love and support from others; and, opening your heart to allow love in when not expected, amazing and priceless outcomes will occur. 
Once I determined the goal and the reason why I wanted to write this book, it took a little over a year to complete.  I can’t even begin to share how many times I had to go back and redo, delete, pace back and forth; and, start over again.  What I was finding that I was writing too  much and it was too heavy, I needed to find a way to lighten up the content and add humor to a serious subject.  I looked at my one dog, Mr MaGoo, my spunky Lhasa Apso and knew at that point he would be my co-author.  After months of reworking the chapters, adding Mr MaGoo’s flavor, I was pleasantly surprised with the finished work.  In fact, I am delighted to read the reviews that I receive; of course Mr MaGoo has now a strong fan base and his fans want more, which I am happy to share, they will see more of his writing in 2013.  
Meet her family like no other: Kelly, Mr. MaGoo, Buffy, Carla Mae, and Betty Boop. A girl, her two Lhasa Apsos, one Cocker Spaniel, and one adorable mutt – each with their own challenging set of difficulties to overcome. One puppy has serious neurological disorders and is blind. Two were severely abused. All are on a journey of discovery. Together, learning love and patience along the way, perhaps none so much as Kelly.
