A Dog Like Daisy / Kristin O'Donnell Tubb

Rescue dog Daisy has just moved in with her new pack, the Abeyta family, and everyone is having a bit of trouble adjusting.  Daisy very much wants to be useful to her new family, so she begins enthusiastically–but hardly perfectly–training to become combat veteran Colonel Abeyta’s service dog in order to assist him with his PTSD.  A beautiful and extremely heartwarming story about a lot of different family members (and species) learning to trust and save each other.  Readers will also enjoy all the wonderful and colorful sensory descriptions as Daisy processes the emotions and environment around her—in uniquely doggish terms.  Ages 9 and up.
