Without even thinking, I say, “Mine is Tam.”
Abby knows that Tam, her Shetland Sheepdog, is her north star, and she’s pretty certain she’s his, too. But when an accident separates Abby and Tam, it feels as though all the stars have fallen out of the sky and nothing will ever be right again. As the days between them turn to weeks, then months, dangers and changes fill up Abby’s and Tam’s lives. Will they ever find their way home to each other?
Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, A Dog’s Way Home is an unforgettable tale of the many miles, months, and mountains that divide two loyal friends—but that can’t possibly keep them apart.
The books author Bobbie Pyron, has generously donated 2 signed copies to be raffled off here on Sheltie Nation!
Bobbie calls A Dog’s Way Home “my own personal love letter to all the great, classic dog books I’ve read and loved—and to all the dogs I’ve loved too.” As a part-time librarian, Bobbie enjoys sharing dog stories and books of all kinds with readers. Bobbie is also the author of The Ring, a teen novel about the world of competitive boxing.
When she’s not writing, working as a librarian, or volunteering with animal rescue organizations, Bobbie and her dogs Boo, Teddy, and Sherlock can often be found walking in the woods of Park City, Utah, with her husband, Todd.

Congrats to Sue C. & Jan H. for winning a copy of the book!
Author P.T. Custard was inspired to write Kid Canine-Superhero! after watching her Sheltie, Dill, playing in the yard while she mowed the lawn. He methodically moved all his toys out of the way of the mower as though saving them from certain doom. His look of utter satisfaction for a job well done led the author to imagine Dill fancied himself a superhero.
Written to entertain and inspire the young, old, and everyone in between, Kid Canine-Superhero!is illustrated in the style of a comic book. The bold, colorful drawings bring the reader into Dill’s imaginary superhero world!
The author has graciously donated 2 books for raffle here at Sheltie Nation, so enter today!

DOGTOWN: Tales of Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Redemption. The book follows the stories of desperate dogs and their dedicated caretakers at Dogtown, the Best Friends Animal Society shelter in Utah that believes in second chances, and portrays the powerful bond between the animals and the people who help them (it is also the first companion book to the National Geographic Channel’s hit show “DogTown”). The book is a compelling testament to the fact that through love and devotion, dogs can be given a second chance at life.
Misfit and traumatized dogs, puppies rescued from puppy mills and war-zone trauma cases, the books tells the stories of 15 of the most memorable and touching cases, including Georgia, a pit bull rescued from Michael Vick’s illegal dog-fighting operation, and Tuffy, whose spirit never flagged after being rescued from a hoarder. The compelling tales draw on the experiences of veterinarians, trainers and volunteers and in the end, we come to see that there are no “bad dogs” and that with patience and compassion, people can help dogs heal.
The book will appeal to animal and dog lovers alike and anyone interested in inspirational stories of perseverance and hope. (It would also make for a wonderful gift this upcoming holiday season!)
The book is also available from the National Geographic website, www.nationalgeographic.com, and wherever books are sold.
