I googled the book to see what it was about, and it tells about how the book came to be, and what the proceeds go to.

The Two Angels
Our photographs feature images of two Angels. The first Angel (on the left), and the one featured in the novel, was Stuart’s faithful companion for 17 years. She is the slightly larger, fluffier dog. The smaller dog (on the right), affectionately nicknamed “Baby Angel” or “Little Angel” is her granddaughter, and is also called Angel. She carries on the original Angel’s work as an ambassador for animal welfare.
The “Angel Come Home” novel was created for the benefit of all organizations that provide for animal welfare. Based on Stuart’s experiences with his own dog, Angel, the book was self-published by Stuart and his friend, Ryan Hadlock in 2007. They vowed that all proceeds would go towards animal welfare. Since the book’s debut, $100,000+ has been donated to animal shelters, rescue groups and animal welfare organizations around the country as a direct result of strong sales. Major stores such as Walgreens now sell the book, and there is even talk of a movie.
Animal welfare organizations have the opportunity to solicit funds for their work from the Angel Come Home Legacy for Animal Welfare. An application can be downloaded on the We Can Help page.
We believe in giving all animals our attention. Since the Angel Come Home Legacy for Animal Welfare began in 2007, we have learned much about the plight of all the animals on our planet. Our donations are now going to organization that help Wild Animals, Farm Animals, and Domestic Animals. We support shelters, rescues, and other organizations active in promoting better animal welfare. We also take action to support all animal welfare organizations by signing petitions, demonstrating, and writing letters to our local, state and congressional representatives. Please consider getting involved by supporting the worthwhile organizations listed on this website. Thank you!

of Angel Come Home Legacy for Animal Welfare
Pets are our companions, and as such, are entitled to the best care we can provide. They are an important and integral part of our family. Their love and devotion enhances our lives beyond measure.
Since our companions do not have the ability to speak for themselves, we can be their voice. We must insist that they be treated with compassion and respect.
Woven throughout the tapestry of our story, “Angel Come Home,” is a reminder of the unique bond between our companions and ourselves--a bond that lasts forever in our hearts.

I'm going to read it. Thanks, I'm always looking for something good to read.
Wow Deb, I didn't know about the web site. I just came across this book by accident. Just checked it out and there is alot of good info on it. Wonder if any of the Maltese rescue reps know about this? May be a way to receive some donations. I am going to share linkwww.[B]angelcomehome[/B].com since the proceeds go to rescues.
Arnela - I would take down that link. It's to your personal Amazon account!! I would think that even if it's ordered thru amazon it will go to charity. Also if you use the American Maltese Academy Rescue Amazon link to buy anything on Amazon, part of proceeds go to them. A real win/win. Go to this page and you will see how you can do it. https://www.americanmalteserescue.org/ Just click on the box to the right. Even if I go to Amazon without that link after I set this up, a box comes up asking me if I want to use the AMAR link, which I always do.
I was wondering what are your favorite books related to dogs (caring, grooming, health, breed, training, etc.). Any specific ones for the Maltese breed?
The two books which are indispensable to me are: "AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy" by Mary Burch and "The Complete Herbal Handbook for the Dog...
I know that several of us read this in the past and saw that today they're offering it for a low price. I thought it was a good read. Interesting and not creepy Stephen King. It is about the Kennedy assassination but an interesting take.
I just bought this after a recommendation off of a wheaten terrier forum. It is a very touching short story about the love of a wheaten and her final days with her Mum. It is suppose to help with a loss of a loved one. Even though it has been a few years since I last had to say goodbye, I...
Well, I'm still planning on going to St. John on December 1st to the 15th.
....depending on my sister's status.
I'm taking my Ipad and think i'd like to download a book to read. Any suggestions? I'd like a fun easy read.
