“Finally, a book that describes a neglected dog’s life and what every animal lover wants to see happen every time -- a happy ending! Every time I read this book, I realize how this truly represents the lives of many of the dogs in our care. San Antonio Humane Society loves this book!” - Cathy McCoy, Director of Communication, San Antonio Humane Society
“In a gentle, but direct manner, this book educates young readers about responsible pet ownership. Animal shelters can use this book to not only inform children, but their parents, of the proper way to care for a dog.” - Janice Darling, Executive Director, Animal Defense League
“I truly LOVE this book! The illustrations are enchanting and the story portrays the humane message of our mission! It is definitely a great addition to our Children's Library at the CAP shelter and a special gift of our Meow-Bow Wow Buddies Club members. Children can learn compassion for neglected animals, and as a result, many pets will have the second chance they so deserve.” - Kappy Muenzer, Executive Director, Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP)
“Cathy Rosenthal has an old-fashioned gift…telling a story with a moral. In The Lucky Tale of Two Dogs, she gently educates young readers so they can be empathetic to the real needs of dogs. We learn the valuable lesson that dogs are afraid when they’re on the streets and that the shelter is a safe and happy place for lost pets. Most importantly, the story demonstrates what many of us already know – that the animal shelter is a wonderful place to adopt a friend.” – Adele Douglass, Founder and CEO, Humane Farm Animal Care-(CAP)
“Some are born lucky; some achieve luck, and some have luckiness thrust upon them. So Shakespeare might have said, and so it is with these dogs: the one having attained luck before the story opens, and the second never suspecting that he might one day be called “Lucky,” too. Without stirring the pity pot, Cathy Rosenthal spins a clear contrast between lucky and unlucky pets and gives hope for dogs who have not yet had luck thrust upon them. What child would not want to be a part of this story!” – Mary Grace Ketner, San Antonio Storyteller
“Lucky. That’s what I call the kids who read Cathy Rosenthal’s new book. Before I read it, I expected a book about responsible pet ownership. Do this. Do that. Don’t do this. Don’t do that. Instead, I found an engaging story that shows how anybody can have a lucky dog.”
– Megan Hicks, Retired Children’s Librarian
