From the Publisher's Desk: Martha: A love story, Part I

Soon after I moved to the coast in 2001, I read an article in the Curry Coastal Pilot about dogs needing homes. The paragraph that caught my attention read something like this: “Baby, a female Chow-mix abandoned at Sporthaven Beach, needs special home. She hates cats, children, men and other dogs. Perfect for a woman living alone.”

At the time I was living alone. I thought about it for a moment then laughed it off. I needed a dog like I needed a hole in my head.

A week later I read an updated plea from the Humane Society. Baby, the adult Chow-mix, and Romeo, a young black Lab, were still on the list. This time they ran a photo of Baby who looked so forlorn staring into the camera.
