Witness the true definition of unconditional love revealed in the remarkable stories featured in -LOVE HEELS-Tales From Canine Companions for Independence, a beautifully designed and illustrated book celebrating people and dogs. The organization, Canine Companions For Independence (CCI) is a not-for-profit organization that -- with the help of so many volunteers-- breeds, raises, trains, and then places it’s exceptional canine graduates with disabled children and adults who are in need of their assistance. Then a very special bond between human and canine companion is established.
The stories and photos in LOVE HEELS bring the Canine Companions for Independence experience to life for the reader and introduces you to many of the thousands of selfless volunteers who make up the breeders, raisers, and trainers of these amazing dogs. From the joyful hours when litters are born, through the playful months of puppyhood, these team members cherish their canine charges until the day they tearfully, yet proudly, pass them on to those who need them most. It is their dedication to helping others and overwhelming love for the puppies that makes it possible for hundreds of people with disabilities to live more independent lives and enjoy an enhanced quality of life.
Then we meet the people for whom CCI was created —the "human partners" — the children and adults with physical disabilities—for whom performing everyday tasks seemed impossible...until they meet their "canine companion." These courageous and determined individuals develop an incredible bond with their new dogs, which not only brings them a great deal of assistance in daily living (the dogs respond to at least 50 commands), but friendship, joy, and an amazing amount of unconditional love. Being able to take charge of their lives, instead of being taken care of, allows the disabled to reach beyond their limitations to be the best they can be. LOVE HEELS is an inspirational and motivational book about courage and love of the softest and fuzziest kind!
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of LOVE HEELS will go to Canine Companions for Independence.From the Publisher:
"Canine Companions for Independence-its founders, its employees, the thousands who donate time or money, or both, to the organization nationwide, the disabled and their families who come here with the intention of improving their lives-brightens every corner where it operates and daily redeems our troubled world. May God bless everyone associated with CCI; as for the dogs-they don’t need blessing, for they are pure of heart and guaranteed the reward of Heaven’s fields from the day that each is born."
