Every rescue dog deserves
A Place to Call Home . . .
Every rescue dog has a tale to tell, a story uniquely their own. A Place to Call Home is Toby’s tale. His story takes you on a journey across the country from California to Connecticut and across the spectrum of life’s emotional and spiritual experience.
Born on a small farm in northern California, Toby narrowly escapes the death sentence imposed upon him by his breeder. Through a series of events driven by good intentions, he finds himself in a Connecticut suburb where life with his new family soon collapses on him, and his newfound happiness is brutally destroyed.
On his quest to find a place to call home, Toby encounters and endures the best and worst of humanity as he comes face to face with sorrow and joy, fear and courage, and ultimately, with the power of love.
“Imagine the stories that dogs could tell us if they could talk. A Place to Call Home: Toby’s Tale by G.A. Whitmore allows us a look inside the mind of a rescue dog named Toby. By alternating the story between Toby’s point of view and the human point of view, G.A. Whitmore helps us to understand how each thing that we do is seen and interpreted by our pets. Through the eyes of Toby, we are drawn to a deep emotional attachment to the innocent world that is seen through the eyes of a puppy and a dog. Simple yet profound, tragic but triumphant . . .” – Bil Howard for Readers’ Favorite
