Shameless plug

Did you all read Nowzad's Story over at The Nowzad Dogs site?

If you haven't yet then I urge you to read it now, you should also read The Marines Side of The Story

These are the stories that inspired my fundraiser.The roller coaster of emotions that I experienced reading them made me determined to do something to help.

One of the thoughts I had on reading these stories was that they should be in a book, as great and as inspiring as they were, they left me hungry for more!

So I'm happy to report that (if like me) you are hungry for more you don't have too long to wait.

Pen (or the Hero Marine as I like to call him) has written the book that will tug a million heartstrings and probably make us cry, laugh, scream and cheer in equal measures. Without even reading a page yet one thing I'm certain of is that this book is going to make us sit up in awe at the dedication and determination of a bunch of Marines who just couldn't walk away.

The book is due for release 5th February 2009 (so I don't have to think too hard about what to buy Mum for her birthday this year!!) and can be pre-ordered from Amazon's UK Site Here or you can sign up to be notified when it is available to order from Amazon's US Site Here.

I will be doing a book review upon it's release.. (well.. within a few days of it's release.. once Mum has finished reading it)

Personally I can't think of a better Valentine gift for your two leggeds!

Whilst we have talked a lot about Nowzad and his pals, we haven't said much about Pen and his fellow Marines...

Can I get a HUGE doggy round of Woos, Aroos, Wrooofs and Doggy Admiration for these truly inspiring men! (come on guys.. they are two leggeds but they ARE awesome two leggeds)

They're great - really truly what more humans should inspire to: to act on their compassion! We've been following their story for some time and hope it never stops being told and retold!
