Danny's Dog

Short Story in Tails of Love Anthology

By Sarah McCarty

Berkley Sensation - June 2009

Contemporary Romance

Ten authors coming together and providing short stories for an anthology. Ten short stories with both romance and animals. Tails of Love is an anthology by authors united together with their love of animals in support of an animal shelter.

Kathy is working with an animal rescue group when they find a large black dog that needs a lot of attention. Knowing that at the shelter his chances were slim, due to his size and potential medical expenses, she takes him home. But not to where she had been living.

To the home that she had left. To her soon-to-be ex-husband.

Danny's Dog is one of the most heart-wrenching romances I have ever read. To truly experience the story, Kathy and Walt's history must unfold as the story progresses, so I won't tell any more than I already have. I was simply amazed at Sarah McCarty's ability to write a romance that moved me so deeply in a mere forty pages. I doubt there will be any reader who will have a dry eye when they finish this story.

Included in Tails of Love are: Man's Best Friend by Lori Foster, A Knotty Tail by Stella Cameron, Norah's Arc by Kate Angell, The Pursuit of Happiness by Dianne Castell, Atticus Saves Lisa by Ann Christopher, Rescue Me by Marcia James, Lord Hairy by Donna MacMeans, Danny's Dog by Sarah McCarty, Scaredy Cat by Patricia Sargeant, and A Man, A Woman, and Haggis by Sue-Ellen Welfonder.
