Can a dog transform your life? Life-long animal advocate and Executive Director of Advocates 4 Animals, Inc., Stacey Ritz shares her inspiring story in her latest book, Not Your Average Grandma: The Story of a Little Senior Dog with Big Life Lessons. While fostering a little senior rescue dog named Grandma, a connection transpired. From that connection came healing. Healing for Grandma, a terribly abused Chihuahua, and healing for her person. Together, the pair learn how to come to terms with their traumatic pasts and move forward. While the author has been a life-long advocate for animals and has always understood that we can take positive actions to help homeless animals and to change their lives for the better, what she learned through rescuing animals is that pets have a way of saving us, too. Ritz shared: "I've been told that I changed Grandma's life, but what most people don't realize is that the little senior dog saved mine."
Although she was a senior dog, Grandma wasn't short on energy. She was full of spunk and she knew what she wanted out of life, once she was given a second chance. The book shares hilarious stories of car rides, vacations and various shenanigans brought on by Grandma. There are also funny stories about situations that came about because of her unique name, "Grandma". The little senior dog who had endured an unthinkable past, brought so much happiness to her person. And her person, who had also endured a difficult past, brought so much joy to Grandma. The pair, as you'll see throughout the book, were meant to be.
