Understanding Sassie II

A Second Novel of Dog and Human Communication

by Helen A. Bemis


Book Details

It’s Not a Big Mistake If You Learn from It!

Riverview Animal Shelter has to cope with new arrivals, some romantic entanglements, the sheltering of hurricane victims, and the schemes of a man who stages brutal dog fights featuring his Pit Bull, Champ. Goldie, the mother of Sassie, Lady, and Pal, has a new home with Animal Control Officer Mike and his dog-behavior-expert wife Millie. Sassie’s life changes dramatically, and dogs and humans learn some lessons about themselves and each other. This, the second in this series, can be enjoyed without having read the first, Understanding Sassie, and it is to be followed by a third, Understanding Champ, a novel about rehabilitating a Pit Bull…and about love. All three novels combine upbeat personal stories with insights about training dogs with affection and love.
