BOOK TOUR & Giveaway - Loving Emmi: How Baby Morgan The Broken Jaw Puppy Stole Our Hearts And Our Wallet (Dog-Ma Book 2) by Barbara Boswell Brunner

And the Dog-Ma saga continues...

In this highly anticipated sequel to the best-selling Dog-Ma, The Zen of Slobber, Izzy, the feisty and ferocious terrier, has lost her eyesight. Following on the heels of this devastating loss, her arch-rival Morgan - a gentle giant of a Rottweiler - suddenly succumbs to cancer. Finding herself a lonely-only, it's not long before Izzy finds herself nose-to-nose with her humans' new pet project: a foster Rottie pup also named Morgan. Quickly renamed Emmi to avoid confusion (and the wrath of Izzy,) it was to be the beginning of a journey unlike any other.

Severely injured as a newborn, Emmi—affectionately known to her fast-growing online fan base as Baby Morgan the Broken Jaw Puppy—is hanging onto life by a thread. Living with a crushed jaw that has left her unable to open her mouth to eat or drink, the prognosis is grim. Baby Morgan is starving to death. Having rescued her from a horrific life, her parents spring into all-out desperation mode to find her the best lifesaving medical care. Despite the advice of veterinary professionals to euthanize, her parents are determined to save her at all costs. Taking to the Internet, they rally a huge online community of dog lovers who quickly become their second family. It does not take long for Emmi's sheer determination and ferocious will to live to take hold.

This is Emmi's miracle. A story of hope, inspiration and triumph in the face of adversity.

Dog-Ma: the Zen of Slobber (Dog-Ma Book 1)

Barbara's vivid and dramatic stories, told with a wicked sense of humor, will make you laugh out loud. She definitely gets what living with rescued dogs (nine of them!) is all about. 

When Barbara meets her future husband, Ray, it is love-and dog-at first sight. Over the course of thirty-two years, seventeen relocations and nine dogs, their mutual love of dogs guides them on their unconventional path. The love that Barbara and Ray get in return is literally lifesaving, with one dog attacking a lethal intruder and another discovering Barbara’s cancer. Her own survival story underscores the story of how her dogs become survivors themselves. 

Each new dog adds its own dynamic to the family, sometimes upending it. From Turbo (whose Spock-like ears may have provided super powers), Barbara learns about the will to live; Lexington demonstrates incredible patience and an inexplicable love of golf; Madison teaches that laughter is truly the best medicine and that the whole “nine lives thing” is not reserved just for cats; Morgan should be sainted for tolerating Izzy, who is as cute as she is bad. Barbara is certain that somewhere in doggie heaven there is a poster that says “If you are sick, injured or in need of really expensive medical care, FIND THESE HUMANS!”

  2. Our Ozzy LOVES belly rubs! And every morning when my hubby comes downstairs to head to work, Ozzy will immediately lie on the floor holding his legs straight up ready to get a belly rub!!

  3. My cat follows me everywhere & leans against me. Cat is not solitary. . Thank you for the awesomeness, the contest, and generosity. :)

  4. My dog ran full speed into our sliding glass door because he thought it was open!

  6. My dog loves to roll down the windows in the back seat when we go for a car ride.

  7. He once went running out in the backyard thinking the snow was not so deep and disappeared under it. Doesn't sound too funny, but looked hilarious!

  8. Out bunny swears on his life he is a cat. Loves to be rubbed and prefers to be indoors. He is such a crack up!

  9. My dog hasn't understood the concept of "Caution: Wet Floor" whenever it's been mopped she always wants to run and she slips and slides and crashes into stuff. She just doesn't get it yet. Luckily she never gets hurt but it is funny to watch her. LOL. :)

  10. Pooped in the bathroom sink when we went out of town Rosanne

She kept waving her paw in the air trying to get it to come off. It looked like she had a marshmallow pompom and was doing some kind of silly cheer lol. And I got it all on tape lol. It was sooooooo funny!! She couldn't get it off, she finally let me pick her up and pull it off.
