Need a Christmas present for a dog lover?
Thank you for your support! I need to raise $2000 to cover the costs of editing, publishing and printing… you can help me do that simply by ordering your copy of DOGGED OPTIMISM a few days early.
For anyone who has ever loved a dog against their better judgement…
Dogged Optimism is the story of a scruffy little dog and the woman who loves her. Killarney the Aussie terrier is not afraid of anything: big dogs, snakes, cancer. Belinda Pollard is afraid of many things, so Killarney becomes her in-house motivational speaker through grief, job loss and failed romance. If you’ve ever loved a dog or needed a laugh, you’ll be inspired by Killarney’s motto: Grab life by the throat and shake every last drop of joy out of it. Wrestle it, if you have to.
Praise for Dogged Optimism

- Anyone who’s ever adored a dog can relate to this evocative, humorous tale. Molly Greene, The Gen Delacourt Mysteries
