A Dog Steals Home. Sixth grade has been a time of adjustment for Zach Stewart. His parents are expecting a new baby, otherwise known as "the little lizard," and a new student is challenging Zach's position as first pitcher on the baseball team. All these changes are enough to make his head spin, and his parents are still denying him the one thing he really wants: a puppy. Hoping to prove how responsible he is, Zach chooses to research the animal shelter for his final school project. He's sure that with a little hard work, he'll not only change his parents' minds and get the puppy he wants, but he'll also earn the spot as first pitcher. But while things seem to be turning around for Zach, his new friend, Audrey, is feeling more and more hopeless. One day, Audrey tells Zach a tragic secret about her past--and then she disappears, leaving Zach with the only clue that might help to bring her home. In this coming-of-age tale, author Kathleen Schrenk reminds us what it means to make difficult decisions and demonstrates the tremendous power of friendship. Sure, Zach might have to put his new puppy and his baseball career on the line--but he might just learn something along the way. New Orleans native Kathleen Schrenk received her bachelor's degree in speech and language pathology from Louisiana State University and has worked as a speech therapist and teacher covering language arts, science, and social studies. She has been pursuing her passion for volunteering since 2001. A founding member of NOLA City Bark dog park, she also serves on the board of the Louisiana SPCA.

A Dog Called. In 1988 we paid $40 for a little reddish brown puppy with a strange-looking ridge of hair down her backbone. She was half Labrador and half Rhodesian Ridgeback and we called her Tsin'tia which is a Comanche term meaning, roughly, Little Stay Awhile. For the next 15 years she was an integral and necessary part of our lives. We laughed and cried over her and shared our lives with her. We gave our hearts to her and she gave her whole life to us. This is her story. Turn the pages and live with her in Texas for a while. I hope you enjoy it even half as much as we enjoyed having Miss T in our lives.

A Dog Called Hope. Lone Survivor meets Marley & Me in this inspiring buddy memoir of an extraordinary service dog whose enduring love brought a wounded soldier back to life. A decade ago, Special Forces warrior Jason Morgan parachuted into the Central American jungle on an anti-narcotics raid. He’d served with the famous Night Stalkers on countless such missions. This one turned out very different. Months later, he regained consciousness in a US military hospital, with no memory of how he’d gotten there. The first words he heard were from his surgeon telling him he would never walk again. The determined soldier responded: “Sir, yes, I will.” After multiple surgeries, unbearable chronic pain, and numerous setbacks, Morgan was finally making progress when his wife left him and their three young sons. He was a single father confined to a wheelchair and tortured by his pain. At this very dark, very low point, Morgan found light: Napal, the black Labrador who would change his life forever. A Dog Called Hope is the incredible story of a remarkable service dog who brought a devastated warrior back from the brink. It is the story of one funny, lovable dog’s power to heal a family and teach a wounded man how to be a true father. It is the story of an amazing dog with boundless loyalty who built bridges between his wheelchair-bound battle buddy and the rest of able-bodied humankind. It is the story of how one very special dog gave a man’s life true meaning. Humorous, intensely moving, and uplifting, Jason and Napal’s heartwarming tale will brighten any day and lift every heart.

Happiness Is Like A Cur Dog. With a raconteur's wit and keen eye for detail, Nelson "Nellie" King spins tales of his journey in professional baseball. From the farm teams of the deep south in the early 1940s, to the pitcher's mound, and then to the Pirates' broadcasting booth in the 1970s, King provides readers with a front row seat to the momentous changes he witnessed in his beloved game. The ball parks, dugouts, and road trips of yesteryear jump to life on these pages, as do the personalities of Pirate legends like Roberto Clemente, Bill Mazeroski, and Willie Stargell. King also has much to say about the business of baseball, from the expansion of franchises to dramatic salary increases. His humor, warmth, and insights will please die-hard Pirates fans as well as baseball history buffs.
