She currently owns the VIP Pet Care Center in Francestown, N.H. The owner of a canine amputee, she seeks to tell the story of her experience--and the experiences of others--with these special animals. The author writes -- "So, what can you do with a three-legged dog? We must remember that dogs are not humans. Though they may exist on the same planet that we do, dogs live in a vastly different world. They are not affected by the emotional baggage that we carry. A dog's quality of life, his ability to function as Nature intended, and his desire to perform the work and activities that he loves and for which he may be born and bred, will be almost completely unaffected by his amputation."
