Dr. Diane Pomerance is a certified Grief Recovery Specialist, as well as the director of the Pet Grief Counseling Program for the Texas SPCA, so it comes as no surprise that her book, Our Rescue Dog Family Album, is a love letter to all of her dogs, past and present.
This oversized book (it’s a slim hardcover that is approximately 8.5 by 11 inches) is set up like a scrapbook. It begins with her first rescues, Yorkshire Terriers named Jasper and Reggie, and continues on through the present describing her current pets: 21 dogs, over half of which are Malamutes or Malamute mixes.
The book is broken down in what are known as “spreads” (former yearbook staffers like myself are well-versed in the lingo) designed with multiple pictures of each pet and a little background as to how she and her husband rescued the dog. It ends with a listing of her favorite quotes matched up with additional pictures of her pets, and it makes me want to start a giant scrapbook of all of my cats!
The book is available for purchase here.
