Haatchi & Little B: The Inspiring True Story of One Boy and His Dog
By Wendy Holden
Thomas Dunne Books
July 2014
224 pages

This is the true story about Owen – aka Little B – a boy with a rare genetic disorder that affects his muscles. Because of his condition he copes with a lot of pain and many doctor visits. Owen is a very smart kid but sometimes he feels frustrated and angry about his disability. Owen needed a friend and every boy needs a dog. But most of the time Owen is confined to a wheel chair and a bouncing puppy likely would have frustrated him even more. Enter Haatchi a 5-month old Anatolian shepherd with an incredible hard luck story to match his big, brown soulful eyes. Rescued from a London rail yard after being hit by a train, Haatchi lost one rear leg and his tail. With his disability, Haatchi was of course the perfect pup for Little B. Though Wendy Holden’s narrative too often lapses into bland reportage, she nonetheless recounts the series of little miracles that brought Haatchi and Little B together and the continued blessings that keep them together. ~ Copyright (c) 2014 by Peggy Tibbetts

crazy bitch thumbIf you love true dog stories …

Crazy Bitch is a great read. Not only is it an excellent look into the world of canine mental illness, but also in coping with bully behavior. Tibbetts writes in a style that draws you in, as if you’re a friend. Within a few pages, you’ll find yourself caring more than perhaps you’d like to about Venus and cheering on the author in her quest to provide her dog with the best life possible.” ~ Sue Kottwitz, Talking Dogs Blog

Crazy Bitch is one book dog lovers won’t want to put down.”
