It's A Wonderful Dog
A Christmas Tail
By Keri Salas
"It's A Wonderful Dog"
It’s Christmas Eve in western Kansas and a snowstorm is gaining strength as Bear Bailey, a devoted Great Pyrenees, tries to comfort his beloved owner Mary. She’s in hot water with the local business villain, and Bear’s earlier altercation with this miser only seemed to make things worse. When Mary blurts out that she wishes for a different life, Bear blames himself for her despair and runs away.
Meanwhile Jiff, a Labrador patiently waiting for his own human to meet him at the Rainbow Bridge, sees Bear shivering alone in the blizzard. Knowing Bear won’t survive the night without intervention, Jiff volunteers to act as Bear’s guardian angel on Earth. He is determined to show the Great Pyrenees what the lives of the humans around him would have been like without his presence over the years.
This holiday “tail” is for those who love the season but feel the deep loss of loved ones (both furry and human), It’s a Wonderful Dog shines a light on the power of love and community, and reminds us that miracles do exist.
Keri Salas grew up a small town girl with a sense of grand adventure. After marrying her childhood sweetheart and starting their first business on a shoestring budget, she went on to spend the last two decades as a life coach helping others reach their dreams.
Exploring London, snuggling with her dogs (past, present, and future), and spending time with her husband, David, are the great loves of her life. Though not necessarily in that order. She believes that people will knock your socks off with their kindness, and life is filled with miracles and serendipitous events to rival any great fictional book.
