If this dog isn't an indication of how we all do whatever we can for the puppies then I don't know what is.

I'm thinking we should start a book, a collection of short stories, of some of these rescues and what they go through (and us) in order to find them their forever home and keep them there! LOL

ETA: Initial discussion came from this thread about Tyrone (http://www.aucado.us/forums/showpost.php?p=140261&postcount=36)

Excellent name, Ei, below is my painting -- Bentley Power. This image stayed in my head until I got it down in paint on canvas.

There is a special power behind the Bentley that heals our kids, this depicts the application of the Bentley "dust" that adorns the head of the Australian Cattle dog, putting a mark of completion on the 'perfect dog', uniquely our own! (Model is one of our own special kids--in his 'young days').

A book of rescue stories And call it "Bentley Power".:pawup:

There's a publisher who does a series of Happy Tails books for different breeds. We were discussing which would sell better, an ACD book or a Border Collie book - shall we go for it?

I'm in. I'll write up the story of Maggs and 3 1/2 hour drive on July 4th and how she quickly got adopted out...and quickly returned because she picked US.

I think the book is a wonderful idea, so many of these dogs have such great stories and sharing them would be so inspiring.

Janet, your painting is beautiful! You are very talented.

We have a forum titled "Dog Stories (http://www.aucado.us/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=23)" which is not really used an awful lot but which I started from the request of a friend who wanted to write a book.
This has never eventuated but maybe we can use this forum as our "Bentley Power" collection instead. I can rename it too if people think this suitable.

I think that would be cool! And I'd LOVE to see Janet's painting used as a cover, if she's agreeable!

Di - we probably should just add "Bentley Power" to the Dog Stories thread title - so we don't hijack Tyrone's thread too much here.

Linda, any idea how much it would cost for them to do a book like that?

I think it would be a wonderful idea and a way to raise money for rescue. Personally everyone I buy gifts for would get one.

Here's the link to the publisher so you can get a better idea of what they do. I've been in a bit of contact w/ her, so we do have some connection:
