This week, The Borrowed Book is giving away:


Just for the Moment: The Remarkable Gift of the Therapy Dog by Deanna Klingel is a poignant, yet sweetly humorous spiritual journey into the therapy dog ministry of Lily and Jessie, two Golden Retrievers who visit health care facilities. Learn how ordinary pets become therapy dogs, and how they weave their small miracles every day. The dogs show us that uncomfortable moments in awkward situations exist only for humans. In a unique compilation of vignettes, in places where frustration and loneliness reside, the therapy dogs show us that the greatest gift is to listen quietly, and spend just a moment, paying quiet attention. A soft nuzzle, a head in the lap, a friendly look into the eyes may be all that was needed in that moment, and is often not remembered beyond that moment. This is a book for every family member and friend, dog lovers of all ages, people in search of a ministry, or anyone who enjoys a pleasant read.

Winners will be announced on Saturday, 01/08/11.

I love dogs, we have 3 right now. We lost our Service Dog ...he was my husbands right hand. My Hubby has Parkinson's and this dog literally saved his life at least twice. I'll always miss Darling Reggie...I believe we will see him in heaven!

I love dogs too! We have a nine year old poodle that is our precious little 'boy'. He is the most intelligent dog I have ever encountered. I would love to win a copy of this book. Thank you for the chance.

Smiles,
Cindy W.
