**This giveaway is closed. Congratulations to Misty, commenter #61 of 82, our winner**
Years ago, our first big photo assignment was to visit a couple who lived near the Texas-Mexico border and photograph their day for an article in Guideposts magazine. Because of that, we’ve always had a fondness for the magazine and jumped at the chance to review their Angels in Disguise book.
All animal lovers know that there’s definitely something special about animals–from dogs and cats to cows and birds–that touches our lives. For many people, animals are seen as messengers to comfort, guide, and heal.
Angels in Disguise: When God Sends Animals to Comfort Us, a book from Guideposts magazine, features 32 true stories about the special experiences people have had with animals, whether pets they’ve shared their lives with or animals that have crossed their paths but touched their lives.
The book, edited by Phyllis Hobe, is divided into six sections: Life-Changing Moments, Gifts from God, Special Messengers, In Time of Danger, Comfort in the Hard Times, and Saying Good-Bye. One of the most unique stories was “Memorial Services,” the story of the twice-daily memorial service that a rancher’s herd held for a cow and her calf that died. Our favorite was “Buckwheat, the Singing Dog,” the story of a singing dog who loved to howl along to Pavarotti’s Christmas album…but would only perform for his family, not for the television crew that came to cover this talented canine!
Guideposts is providing one DogTipper reader with a copy of Angels in Disguise!
