The Bond between Dogs and Humans

Right now we are celebrating Fond du Lac Reads with the book Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson. Mr. Hingson is a blind man who was in the World Trade Center on 9/11 and survived with the help of his guide dog Roselle. Dogs do not have to be service dogs or therapy dogs to have a big effect on our lives. If you are a dog lover, you know what I mean. Books that highlight the dog/human bond are on display at the Library in conjunction with Fond du Lac Reads.

She shares her story in Until I Say Goodbye: My Year of Living With Joy.
