“My Dad My Dog”

When she moves her Alzheimer’s-afflicted dad into the home she shares with her husband and elderly dog, Rachel Morgan expects some complications, but she never imagines the biggest one will occur on the first day, threatening her best-intentioned caregiving plans.

Her normally sweet-natured dad–a former mailman who experienced too many run-ins with biting dogs–is adamant about wanting nothing to do with her big black Labrador. But as Rachel tends to the escalating physical and emotional needs of each, she notices the striking similarities in their aging processes, and realizes these two souls whom she loves deeply are on the same journey.

With time working against her, Rachel must find a way to transform their uneasy truce into a trusting companionship. In doing so, she hopes to make their shared journey less lonely and frightening–and more bearable for those who must someday let them go.

My Dad My Dog is available for purchase at the following sellers or may be borrowed from MemoryCare’s resource center at 100 Far Horizons Lane, Asheville, NC 28803.

Rebecca Warner

 

Following a successful career in banking, Rebecca Warner pursued her dream of writing with the publication of  her first book, the two-time award-winning political thriller, Moral Infidelity.

Her follow-up, Doubling Back To Love, was included in the popular romantic anthology, Peace, Love and Romance.

Her third book, He’s Just A Man, offers self-help advice for women seeking healthy relationships.

­­­­In her emotional new novel, My Dad My Dog (Black Rose Writing, November 2020), Rebecca weaves her own powerful caregiving experiences into the heartwarming tale of a journey that a man with Alzheimer’s and an elderly dog are destined to take together.

Rebecca lives in Asheville, North Carolina, with her husband, Jason, and their lively, stumpy-tailed cattle dog, Chance.
