More about the Award from DWAA

On Sunday night, February 9th, at the Westminster dog show, my book Elsa Was Born a Dog, I Was Born a Human…Things Have Changed received the Merial Special Award for the best work on Human-Animal Bond. Merial is a large company that manufactures veterinarian pharmaceuticals. The award was for “the work that best highlights the unique relationship between a dog and its owner and best brings to life the concept of the human-animal bond”. There were 700 entries and I was told that there was strong competition. It was presented by the Dog Writers Association of America. I am very pleased that my book has been honored by other writers.
