Share a "Tail"
Let's honor your wonderful adopted dogs by featuring their stories in a book! We have many "Lost Souls: Found!" books in the works, so regardless of your dog's breed, we want to hear about them!
You can submit information for one of several sections in our books. Longer stories (600-1200 words, please!) will be considered for features. Shorter stories, preferably no more than a paragraph in length, will be considered for our "Even Shorter Stories" section. For this section you can tell us a funny or heartwarming anecdote about your dog, or describe a challenge you had with your dog and how you overcame it. We are also open to poems, recipes, and of course, great photos.
It is not necessary that your dog came from a rescue group. The only stories we will not consider are those about dogs who were bought from a breeder or pet store. (Note: We have nothing against responsible private breeders - in fact we hope for a day when they are the only ones breeding dogs - their dogs are just not appropriate for the focus of these books.)
Mixed-breed dogs are welcome, too! We like to include some stories of mixed-breed dogs in our "Lost Souls: Found!" books - just let us know what your dog's dominant breed is.

The best stories are emotional. They make the reader laugh and/or cry. They generally begin with a problem (often the dog is in a bad situation), involve some kind of rescue situation, there are some ups and downs including one main crux, and then the story is resolved and everyone lives happily ever after. This is NOT always the pattern, but most stories that are accepted for the books resemble this pattern to some extent.
