A heartwarming memoir of second chances, loyal companionship, and unconditional love—as revealed through the eyes and experiences of man's best friend. A golden retriever/chow mix shares her life, adventures, and hard-earned wisdom in Letters from Angel, as told to Martin P. Levin. Adopted as a puppy by a family in suburban New York, Angel blossomed into a beautiful, loving, energetic companion. Continually abused by the family's father, she ran away. Living off the land for months, she found shelter and protection with homeless people, surviving through her own instinctual skills. When winter came, Angel was rescued by the ASPCA, who identified her owners and brought her home. The mother refused to take Angel back, sparing the dog further abuse. At nine years old, Angel was taken to a dog shelter, her spirit crushed. Then Angel was rescued by Martin and his caretaker, Paula Drost, and discovered a whole new world—air travel, a home she describes as the "biggest dog house in the world," winters on a Florida beach, and walking in Central Park. Angel shares her innermost thoughts on everything from her reactions to lightning flashes and fireworks to tricks on taking medicine and maintaining weight control. Toward the end, she writes about the burdens of growing older, eased by the love of her companions. Insightful and charming, Angel's letters reveal a dog's inner, exceptional life. "Angel is a wise and funny and loving writer. Anybody who has loved or lost a dog will enjoy this book." —The New York Times–bestselling author Jon Katz
