Ty’s Journey: Sharing the Lessons, Life and Love of My Adopted PTSD Collie by Ryan Jo Summers
Non-Fiction, Memior, Pets
In March, 2015, nine collies were transported from a Tennessee neglect/ hoarding situation to a North Carolina breed-rescue organization. They were collectively called “”The Baseball Team””, and individually they were given baseball-themed names.They were all untrained, neglected and distrustful of people.Some had reverted to near wild-dog instinctive behavior. A male blue merle called Ty Cobb was the first to be adopted.
His adopted ‘mama’ recorded the first two years of their journey, chronicling their challenges, doubts, setbacks, successes, surprises, and ultimate triumphs as Ty first learned to trust, then to blossom and thrive.
Written in diary style, this is the story of that one particular, unique collie. He went from being a near-feral hoarding victim, without even a name, through a long trail of adjustments, to belonging to a family that treasured him for the special hallmarks that make him ‘Ty’. Along the way, as he healed, he also brought healing to others in need.
* A portion of each sale of this book will go to benefit the Collie Rescue of the Carolina’s.
