This is the book that I believe changed how I viewed dogs.  I had a dog and loved dogs, but did not realize how amazing dogs can be until I read this story.  When I heard the term, service dog, I thought of a seeing eye dog. And to be honest that was the only type of dog I had ever seen.  After reading this book, I was opened up to a whole new world of service dogs that did more than assisted the blind.  There were military dogs, cadaver dogs, and emotional support dogs.  I learned that there were dogs that can alert a diabetic to a low blood sugar concern before the person even knows about it.  The dog in this true story, Tuesday, helps his owner with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder).  Since reading this book, I have learned that there are many veterans in need of these types of dogs.  If you love dogs but are always afraid to read a book about dogs because you think it will be sad, then be rest assured that this book is a happy book 🙂

GOODREADS

A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalván never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home from combat, however, his physical wounds and crippling post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. He wondered if he would ever recover.

Then Luis met Tuesday, a sensitive golden retriever trained to assist the disabled. Tuesday had lived among prisoners and at a home for troubled boys, and he found it difficult to trust in or connect with a human being–until Luis.

Until Tuesday is the story of how two wounded warriors, who had given so much and suffered the consequences, found salvation in each other. It is a story about war and peace, injury and recovery, psychological wounds and spiritual restoration. But more than that, it is a story about the love between a man and dog, and how, together, they healed each other’s souls.
