A Tale of Tales of Tails: Animals in My Life
by LTC Clifton H. Deringer Jr. USA (Ret.) “Tip”
Sometimes the biggest impressions on a life can come in the form of a four-legged friend. In A Tale of Tales of Tails: Animals in My Life, LTC Clifton H. Deringer Jr. USA (Ret.) “Tip” recollects the beloved pets throughout his lifetime. Through his retellings, Deringer works to inspire love and happiness with four-legged companions.
Jolene has truly captured the ways animals enrich and bless our lives in profound ways. Not only is Angel On My Shoulder a story of an exceptional, loving pit bull named Rumer, it is on a larger scale the defense of a gentle, loyal breed that has been much maligned and misunderstood. May it help everyone understand both the true nature of the American Pit Bull as well as the true nature of love.
Katrina Kittle, author of The Kindness of strangers and The Blessings of the Animals
Far more than any other breed, the American pit bull represents different things to different people. Badly managed dogs grab headlines because their behavior is atypical; Jolenes experience represents the far less shocking though no less fascinating reality of life with a peaceful, loving, comedic pit bull as best friend. If you enjoy tales of true love, you will value this story.
Diane Jessup, author of The Working Pit Bull and The Dog Who Spoke With Gods
On a bitterly cold February day in 1992, a woman named Jolene found herself with a choice to make: the brindle puppy in a kindly strangers left palmor the red puppy in his right?
For Jolene Mercadante, a librarian and lifelong animal advocate, this was the first tentative step on a journey that would impact the way she lived the rest of her life. She had no way of knowing how Rumer, a single little soul the size of a sausage, was about to change her life.
Through all of lifes great adventuresthe perfect five-week-old baby; the lanky, rebellious teenager; the extraordinary, splendid adultRumer was a creature of humor and love. She joyfully shattered the unjust pit bull stereotypes. She might not have been a heroic rescue dog, a therapy dog, or a war hero; there are other pit bulls who can claim this fame. But Rumer did touch the lives of everyone who knew her, and that made her heroic in her own way.
She did save us, she did rescue us, and she was our hero in so many ways.
Rumer was an ordinary dog who lived an ordinary life, but thats what made her extraordinary. This memoir is an unforgettable love story and an uplifting journey brought about by the life of a truly pure and beautiful soul.
In Learning to Live with Fritz, author E. Rawlins tells the story of her chaotic relationship with Frizbee, an eight pound nut case who is in reality an ill-tempered angel in a hairy disguise. In her humorous and self critical memoir fifteen years of non-stop travel take the dizzy diva and her high maintenance mascot to Paris, Brussels, Tokyo, Vienna, Salzburg, Milan, London and back to the Big Apple. Along the way they captivate a handsome young baritone on his personal journey to international operatic celebrity. As the drama unfolds, the idea of love at first sight reveals itself to be anything but a romantic illusion. Fritz upstages and controls his mistress through his rigidly enforced rules and regulations, his antics, his irascible charm and oftentimes through his bizarre otherworldly connections. This is a memoir of a narcissistic would-be diva and a dog who is dead serious about teaching her to give up her illusions, to live authentically and above all, to learn the meaning of unconditional love.
