This is a remarkable dog story of a highly intelligent and gifted, athletic dog challenged against insurmountable odds in an attempt to regain his health and his life back after an acute accident. It is a deep bond between owner and pet canine or, better said, two best friends working together to discover a path to survival. Canine fibrocartilaginous embolism, better known as canine FCE, is not a term widely known by most dog owners; however, all dog owners will find this story riveting as they will learn and witness what can be accomplished when the love of an owner for his dog combined with man’s best friend loyally work in unison. You will find this story to be heartwarming, emotional, serious, and funny. It will grab you and draw you in. You will put yourself into the story and wonder, Would you have stayed on this train of a true story, or would you have departed somewhere along the way? On average, 44 percent of the population in the USA own a dog. They are entwined deeply throughout the families they live and cohabitate with. Dogs have a way of discovering our mood changes, if we are sick, and if there is danger nearby. They are loyal to a fault and always happy to see us when we arrive. How far would we go to support them when the odds are against you? Reading this story will definitely make you ask yourself that question. I wrote this book because this story has to be told. I hope you enjoy the ride.
