Summary, etc.:
"When Connecticut veterinarian Melissa Shapiro gets a call about a tiny deaf, blind puppy rescued from a hoarding situation in need of fostering, she doesn't hesitate to say "yes." Little does she know how that decision will transform her, her family, and legions of admirers destined to embrace the saga of the indomitable pink pup. One of the most anxious dogs Melissa had ever encountered, the traumatized Piglet weighed under two pounds upon his welcome into the Shapiro household - which included Melissa's husband, Warren, and their three college-aged kids, plus six other rescued dogs. After weeks of reassurance, and lots of love, Piglet connected, gained confidence, and his extraordinary spirit emerged. Melissa soon forged a powerful bond with Piglet, allowing the two to communicate without sound or visual cues. Two months later, when the day arrived to say good-bye to the now dashing, six-pound pink boy-dog with the larger-than-life spirit, Melissa faced a heart-wrenching decision. Would she hand him over to someone willing to give Piglet the full-time attention he required - or could she adapt her schedule and her household to make a permanent place for him in her life and work? Of course, the answer was simple: love would find a way"-- Provided by publisher.
