Brand New Children’s Book about a 3 legged Dog – Misha’s Message of Pawsitivity
My husband and I had two labrador retrievers: Luna and Misha. The four of us did everything together. We had a lot of great adventures. At different times, Luna and Misha both got Cancer. The illness did not let it change their vitality for life, love and adventure.
The neighborhood children watched as Misha lost her leg to Cancer; experienced her grief, which turned into determination, which then turned into confidence and pawsitivity! It was the neighborhood kids who urged me to write a book about the experience – Misha’s Message of Pawsitivity.
“Luna and Misha have taught me a lot about the challenges of life. They’ve taught me to live in the present with a grateful spirit. In spite of it all, I’ve learned to accept myself for whatever flaws/disabilities/perceptions and to enjoy the ride of life.”
Based on a true story
Achocolate lab named Misha shares her stories of adventure. But she discovers that every adventure seems to come with an unexpected challenge. She finds that not only is she battling Cancer, but so is her best friend, Luna. After much loss and grief, she must cope with losing her leg. Misha must find her way back to her joyful self. In the end, a fortunate experience helps give her loss meaning. Choosing a positive mindset isn’t always easy, but it is always worth it.
Misha’s Message of Pawsitivity is a cute and heart warming story for anyone looking to explain Cancer, loss, or disabilities to a child. This story can help encourage young and old alike, who need a little more pawsitivity!!
