The Puppy That Came for Christmas

I received a copy of The Puppy That Came for Christmas by Megan Rix from Net Galley for an honest review.

All Megan Rix wanted was a baby. Yet month after month, Megan's dreams were dashed. Would her life ever feel complete? Megan and her husband, Ian, found a surprising answer when they began training golden retriever pups to become service dogs for people with disabilities.

Meg and her husband Ian desperately wanted to have children, but after undergoing many tests and trials decided to be foster parents to puppies for Helper Dogs. Helper Dogs trains dogs to be helpers for people with physical problems who have trouble taking care of themselves. The dogs are taken care of as puppies by foster parents who start the training and are then moved on to advanced training. Meg and Ian foster 2 puppies (Emma and Freddy) before realizing they'd love to have their own forever puppy. They make several lasting friendships with other foster parents with Helper Dogs.
This is a wonderful book for anyone who has longed for a child or any animal lover.
