Brand New Children’s Book about 3 legged Dog – Misha’s Message of Pawsitivity
My husband and I had two labrador retrievers: Luna and Misha. Â The four of us did everything together. Â We had a lot of great adventures. At different times, Luna and Misha both got Cancer. Â 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! Â It was the neighborhood kids who urged me to write a book about the experience â€“ Misha’s Message of Pawsitivity.
“Luna and Misha have taught me a lot about the challenges of life. Â They’ve taught me to live in the present with a grateful spirit. Â In spite of it all, I’ve learned to accept myself for whatever flaws/disabilities/perceptions and to enjoy the ride of life.”
Children’s book about 3 legged dog, based on a true story:
A chocolate lab named Misha shares her stories of adventure. Â But she discovers that every adventure seems to come with an unexpected challenge. Â She finds that not only is she battling Cancer, but so is her best friend, Luna. Â After much loss and grief, she must cope with losing her leg. Â Misha must find her way back to her joyful self. Â In the end, a fortunate experience helps give her loss meaning. Â 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. Â This story can help encourage young and old alike, who need a little more pawsitivity!!
