He was her eyes, guiding her through the darkness and always at her side. She showed him the light of compassion, life, and love. The bond they shared together was beautiful and unbreakable.
Then one day, everything changed.
In only his third year as a guide dog, the world overturned for Chance. He came face-to-face with one of the most difficult struggles in life. His routine and his heart broken, Chance needs to find the strength and the will to move forward beyond the pain to what is next in life. He will journey to fulfill his destiny while discovering the rest of the human world and who he is in the process.
In his new phase of life, Chance is partnered with a special young boy named Ethan, who teaches him new levels of understanding, happiness, and strength. The way this new understanding shapes Chance enables this very unique dog to touch the lives of others around him in times of both joy and sorrow.
Everything is truly tested when what Chance loves and what he fears collide in a crucial decision—which must be made within a split second.
In Chance in a Lifetime, the story of a guide dog’s journey unravels through his own eyes, the same eyes that see for those who cannot see themselves. Through his unique perspective, readers discover the good in animals and people alike, and the beauty of the bonds between them.
