This was posted by my friend Michelle Gent in the U.K. It’s too precious not to share and poignant that they were separated. And who says dogs don’t have emotions?

“This brother and sister dual, Xena and Zach, were rescued from a kennel, but separately. One day the owners were walking the dogs, and they ran into each other … still wearing the hankies from the kennel around their necks. This is how they greeted each other.”

All profits from all my books are going to get dogs like this out of kill shelters. For everyone who has purchased one of my book and taken the time to write a review, thank you. To everyone who has blogged or reblogged about any of my books, thank you. To all of you who have supported this effort with comments or conversations, thank you. I’m truly grateful and with every act of kindess a tail wags.

The paperback of To Live Out Loud should be out in a week.

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    To date in 2015 Paulette’s books have gotten 28 dogs out of kill shelters in the U.S. This is in addition to profits going to Santa Paula Rescue Center (from The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap) and Canine Adoption Rescue League (from His Name Was Ben). It’s a good feeling to help these dogs. Terry (Paulette’s husband)

  4. What is that tightness in my heart? Oh yes, must be some paws around it, squeezing it…for old time’s sake. ❤ What a great picture! Animals have a direct line to their hearts and ours…but, of course, you know that, my dear, dear friend! 🙂 🙂

    Fantastic, and how ever so touching!

  6. So sweet. Thank you for all the good you do in the world, for your kind and caring heart.

  7. What you are doing is commendable beyond the capacity of my vocabulary width!

    • Oh wow, that’s quite a compliment. Thank you. For me, and my hubby, it’s rewarding and easy, all for the love of dogs. And boy do they give back a zillionfold in return with loving appreciation. It’s been a blessing to have this passion for them and get to share my/our lives with them. Plus, fortunately and luckily, we can afford to do this. My profits are not that great but trust me a little here and there pledged by a lot of people adds up to a whole lot of wagging tails. ❤

    Gosh, we should learn from them. Hugs.

  9. The bro and sis dogs hugging as just about the sweetest thing that I’ve seen in a long time. Of course animals remember and they certainly have emotions. I’m glad they each ere adopted and I hope the owners will stay in touch so the dogs can visit and play together.

    • So good to see you here and share this with you. And we know as dog lovers all about their emotions. If we don’t take them with us, the make wrong. If we give them a scratch or treat, the joy. And oh boy, a walk = exhilaration, not to mention how they grieve when their human dies. ❤
