Endal - The Book

Post  littlewid on Wed Apr 28, 2010 9:38 pm

Endal is a Labrador retriever, he is an assistance dog that was trained by Canine Partners for Independence. Endal first came to fame when he was spotted by a newspaper reporter, Endal was getting money from a cashpoint machine for his dasabled owner Allen parton. Endal and Allen subseuently shot to fame and used Endals fame to raise money and awareness for Canine Partners for Independence. Their story is a touching one and definiately one I can recommend. Here is the write up for the Book, Endal.

Allen parton suffered a serious head injury while serving in the Gulf war and returned home unable to walk,talk or even remember most of his life. He couldn't even remember his wife, sandra, and their two children. After five years of rehabilitation, he was still severely disabled.
Sandra was a nurse so thought she would be able to help her husband, but the Allen who had returned didn't remember her, and couldn't cope with what life had dealt him. Determined to be strong, Sandra would have to fight to keep her family together.
Endal was a labrador puppy with problems of his own until he "adopted" Allen & Sandra. He was to change their world, and give them back their family

The book is published by Harper True for Harper Collins, I paid £6.99 for it but it may now be cheaper.

To read more about Endal and Allen take a look at this link and if you buy the book, you won't be disappointed.
