The Divinity of Dogs comes to Woodstock | Community Spirit
FoxTale Book Shoppe will host The Divinity of Dogs launch party and book signing at 7pm on October 26, with author Jennifer Skiff. FoxTale is partnering with Our Pal's Place, a local animal advocate organization with a pet adoption facility and education center, located in Marietta, to bring this uplifting event to Woodstock.
From Jennifer Skiff, the bestselling author of God Stories, comes an uplifting collection of inspirational and heartwarming stories from people who have encountered the divine through their dogs. There are 80 million dogs in the United States, and many of them profoundly touch the lives of the humans around them. They teach us about patience and love, they comfort us when we’re feeling most alone, and they even perform miracles.
A percentage of sales from the book launch of The Divinity of the Dog will go to Our Pal's Place whose mission is to provide solutions to resolve current animal welfare issues. One day they hope to successfully go out-of-business because their rescue, adoption and education services are no longer needed!
FoxTale co-owner Ellen Ward said, "We are excited to welcome Ms. Skiff to Woodstock and at the same time help support Our Pal's Place. Although we are partial to the fox, we also love dogs!"
In The Divinity of Dogs, you’ll find dozens of inspiring and delightful examples of the many ways that dogs lead us to spiritual enlightenment. You’ll meet Little Bit, the Chihuahua who detected a small lump in her owner’s breast where even a doctor couldn’t find it. There’s Emma, the devoted Rottweiler who ferociously grabbed her owner’s arm at the moment he was trying to commit suicide, saving his life. In addition, throughout the book, the author weaves her own experiences with dogs, showing how they comforted her through mistreatment as a child, divorce, and a cancer diagnosis.
Together, the stories that make up The Divinity of Dogs provide hope, help, and healing for millions of dog lovers everywhere.
