A book about a rescue dog
that will touch your heart

THE HUNT OF HER LIFE, is a nonfiction book about Samantha, an unwanted rescue dog who the author adopts at age 2. This beautifully designed full-color deluxe book, by longtime newspaper journalist Joseph A. Reppucci, contains more than 60 vibrant color photos of dogs to help illustrate the compelling and uplifting story of Samantha - a pretty tricolor bird dog who uses her warm personality to win people over and build a new family after being put up for adoption by a hunter because she is gun-shy and afraid to hunt. Learn how she uses her special bonding abilities with people to help her eventually make a transition from the hunting fields to family life. While reading the The Hunt of Her Life, you will travel with Samantha and the author along a trail filled with surprising twists, sudden turns, mystery and even what some call a miracle. And when the journey is finished, you may never look at people and their pets, motherhood - and perhaps even God - in the same way.  The Hunt of Her Life is must reading. It will take you on a captivating journey - a trip like no other - that will touch your heart.

Almost 70 percent of pet parents say they allow their dogs and cats to break household rules - like sneak extra treats or hop on the bed or couch - when their spouse or significant other is not home, according to the survey by the American Animal Hospital Association."Pet owners are going to great lengths to keep their pets happy and healthy," American Animal Hospital Association president Daniel S. Aja states in a media release. "From daily exercise and regular veterinary checkups to making arrangements for pets in case of emergency, this survey shows that pet owners are extremely dedicated to their beloved pets."

The survey of pet owners in the United States and Canada found:

  • 45 percent say their pet “listens best” while 30 percent choose their spouse or significant other.
  • 93 percent are likely to risk their own life for their pet, while 64 percent of owners would expect their pet to come to their rescue if they were in distress.
  • 82 percent think of their pet more than once while they are away from him or her during the day.
  • 53 percent say they are spending more on their pets now than they did three years ago.
  • 50 percent would pick a dog or cat rather than a human if they were deserted on an island.
  • When traveling without their pet, 61 percent leave their pet in the care of friends or family.
