Judy: The Unforgettable Story of the Dog Who Went to War and Became a True Hero - Damien Lewis

It's not very often that a book makes me cry, but this one did. It's the true story of Judy, a smart, spunky dog who, from the time she was a puppy, seemed to get herself into--and out of--more incredible and dangerous situations than most canines or humans ever face in their lifetimes. She and her human companions suffer massively as POWs during World War II, and the bonds they form as they risk life and limb to comfort, save, and be there for one another are a true testament as to why dogs really are a man's best friend.

 

Right from the start, there are no dull moments in Judy's life. She was destined to be a hero and to save lives. Her story is sometimes humorous, often frightening, and always amazing. This truly is a story that deserves to be told.
