The Die-Hard Dog
Lance, a border collie, spends a few miserable weeks inside his owners' house before he is thrown outside and chained, without food, water or shelter. For ten years he is kept alive by a neighbor, but remains trapped on hostile territory, tortured by people and attacked by animals. Then, he and the author accidentally cross paths.
When his owners threaten to get rid of him “permanently,” the author and his wife pull off a last-minute border collie rescue and move to another town. End of story? No, just the beginning. Lance shows his gratitude by launching a reign of terror against his dog rescuers and anyone else he can get his teeth on. Experts and non-experts declare him a lost cause. His owners face an agonizing dilemma: Do we destroy the dog we rescued?
While waiting for his fate to be decided, Lance furnishes loads of comic relief. He makes every car ride a life-threatening yet rollicking adventure (though not to the state trooper); his Houdini-like disappearing acts defy explanation; he fouls up a drug bust; and he challenges a swan to a swimming contest—guess who wins? When Lance isn’t menacing, he's entertaining.
Fasten your seat belt and take the same crazy, emotional rollercoaster ride his rescuers took. Be warned! Lance will get into your heart and under your skin (not literally, of course!).
Dog lovers are special people. They know when a special connection occurs with an abused animal. I’d like you to discover how I found Lance—a victim of dog abuse—and find out just how entertaining—and exasperating—he could be. Enjoy Chapter One now.
