“I have nothing but the highest of praises to sing for this thought-provoking, tear-jerking tale of torture, death, hope and survival.” Rosie Malezer for Readers’ Favorite – 5 stars 

“Anyone who’s had the privilege of sharing their lives with an animal companion will love Sandy’s story ... most highly recommended.” Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite – 5 stars 

 In the depths of despair, she has no idea who, or where she is.
Dying of thirst with her ribcage almost poking through her skin, she can barely put one paw in front of the other when she’s rescued from the street.
When Sandy’s people parents take her to her beautiful new home on the island, she tries to focus on her future, and return the love and kindness showered upon her. Then she meets Lola, Obie and Chip, and the traumatic flashbacks begin.
As her past slowly unravels, and her memory returns, Sandy must make a choice that will determine her life and her future.
What will she decide?

‘The Island Dog Squad’, an animal action and adventure novella, told by Sandy the rescue dog.

(The Island Dog Squad is a series of novellas inspired by the rescue dog Deb and Allan adopted this March. The real Sandy is a sensitive soul, not quite like her fictional namesake, and the other characters are loosely based on Sandy’s real-life mates.)

Book Trailer:

Meals were an interesting time too. I generally ate biscuits but was given snacks in between my morning or evening meal, or as encouragement when they wanted me to do something new. Well, new to Ben and Ellie, but tricks seemed to come easily to me and I was very chuffed to hear them tell friends, and even strangers, how clever I was.

Their food always looked more interesting than mine. One day Ellie had a bowl with red items, covered in white liquid. I licked my lips and tried my most pathetic doe-eyed look.

‘Ah, look at her, Ben.’

I was in with a chance then.

‘Mummy’s a fruitivore, Sandy,’ said Ben, ‘and you’re a carnivore, so you won’t like strawberries.’

‘But she eats biscuits too,’ said Ellie. ‘Surely we can give her some of our food now and then?’

Hey guys, remember me? I nudged Ben’s leg, but he ignored me.

‘It’ll make her think she can come to the table and scrounge and neither of us want that.’

‘True,’ said Ellie. ‘Go lie down, Sandy.’

I sighed and went to sulk in my bed. I had nothing to complain about but, like I said earlier, their food always looked more appealing than mine. I was to discover that Ellie was also a vegivore and chocivore. Strangely enough, she was also a carnivore and so was Ben. As a special treat one weekend, I was given some roast pork, and it was heaven.
