Please, Pick Up That Line!

Pippa found some fishing line this morning. It was spread across about 10 yards of shoreline. As it tangled her feet, she wasn't happy about her discovery. If left there, the line could have been far more harmful or even fatal to a turtle, bird, or small mammal.

A special "thanks" and a one-finger salute to those who left it there.

Such thoughtless jerks aren't going to change. It's up to the rest of us to pick up after them because we are better human beings than they are. Please join me in doing so whenever you are on or near the water.

Activist Angler Writes Book About Dogs

Local fishing expert and award-winning writer Robert Montgomery’s fourth book in less than five years has recently been released.

Unlike his previous books, however, which are mainly about nature, conservation, fishing and the appreciation of nature, “Pippa's Journey: Tail-Wagging Tales of Rescue Dogs” is about dogs, specifically adopted dogs, and highlights the efforts of Farmington Pet Adoption Center (FPAC) and other no-kill shelters.

Pippa’s Journey describes the “often funny, near tragic, and always exciting ride” Montgomery took with his dog during their first four years together. He dedicated the book “to man’s best friend and no-kill animal shelters,” and is donating a portion of the profit from the sale of each book to the Farmington Pet Adoption Center, where he found Pippa in 2013.

You Can't Buy Love, But You Can Adopt It

Pippa's Journey: Tail-Wagging Tales of Rescue Dogs.

Pippa grew up in a shelter. Against all odds, she was adopted at age 2. This is the often funny, near tragic, and inspirational story of her discovery of the outside world.

The book also contains touching stories of other rescue dogs , as well as information about the shelters and why people should consider adopting, especially adult dogs.

It's entertaining, heart-warming, and a great reference book as well!

Pippa's Journey is dedicated to man's best friend, and a portion of the proceeds from sales will be donated to no-kill shelters.

Great Reviews for Pippa's Journey at Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love dogs, you have to read this book!

I really loved this book. It tells the story of the author deciding to give an adult dog in a shelter a chance rather than adopting a puppy. Their story is heartwarming and although Pippa struggled at times to adapt to her new home, with Robert's patience and guidance, she developed a bond with him and is thriving. It also includes stories of other rescued dogs. People who love dogs and know how many wonderful adult dogs are overlooked in shelters will love this book. And hopefully, it will raise awareness for people who are not aware of their plight. Adopt, don't shop!

 

5.0 out of 5 stars For Readers Who Enjoyed "A Dog's Purpose"

I’ve read each of Robert Montgomery’s books, but this book of dog stories is my favorite. The rescued dogs in this book touched my heart and inspired me to always look first at the local shelter before I get a dog. As one of the writers says, “We rescue dogs, and they rescue us.”
Each story in the book celebrates the tangible and intangible blessings of loving lost, abandoned, and homeless dogs who want to share unconditional love, loyalty, and compassion with their humans. Plus, the book contains great information about shelters, adopting dogs, and how to bond with a new canine friend. I highly recommend this book for all animal lovers.
