    Kim, I absolutely loved your book and couldn’t put it down! I live in Texas and started volunteering with Bullmastiff Rescue after adopting 2 of them. Thanks for shedding light on what really happens to so many poor dogs down here.

  2. Kim, This message is long overdue. Thank you so much for sending me an autographed copy of Little Boy Blue. My nephew mentioned to you how passionate I was about rescue, and you kindly sent a book home with him. I loved the book, and the personal message brought tears to my eyes! I am currently fostering a Doxi mix that was on death row twice. I can’t imagine living life any other way. I also want to thank you for all that you do to raise awareness about shelter animals.Wishing you continued success! Diane~

    • Thanks Diane, glad you liked the book and please keep up the great work with the foster dogs!
