WALKING POINT WITH A HERO
A novel by Judy Howard
Too young to open her eyes, a bumbling golden retriever puppy named Masada, brings the reader on her quest to become an American Service Dog and save a veteran’s life. Follow Masada’s paw prints, even though a prison, as she encounters risks, makes sacrifices, and forms unusual bonds during her eighteen months of training.
The veteran, Alex March USMC, loves his family, but sacrifices his domestic life for the love of his country and the Corps. When Alex finishes his tour, he returns to discover he has lost his courage, his pride, his family, and worst of all his will to live. The VA says a service dog is the answer, but the waiting list is a year long.
