TRAVELS WITH CHARLIZE
Third Place Books, Lake Forest Park (near Seattle, WA)
7 pm Tuesday, August 4, 2015

After losing his wife of almost fifty-three years to cancer, David Gross adopts Charlize, a German shepherd rescue dog, buys a camping trailer, and the two begin their travels. They explore the West, visiting parks and vistas, rain forests and deserts, family, old friends and new. Accidents, adventures, sadness, joy, problems, and peace populate their journey of discovery. Ever patient and sensitive to her companion’s feelings, Charlize remains close, attentive, and comforting, especially when needed most. And at every stop, she greets strangers with a loving heart and wagging tail, showing the way to embrace life. In Travels with Charlize: In Search of Living Alone, David Gross tells a gentle and open story of recovery.

Travels with Charlize is available from any independent bookstore, Amazon.com, or Barnes & Noble. The Kindle e-book edition is currently available as are versions for Kobo and Nook. Dr. David Gross has published over ninety papers in refereed scientific journals and over a hundred abstracts in proceedings of scientific meetings. He co-edited three multi-authored textbooks and his single author text, Animal Models in Cardiovascular Research, can be found in most medical libraries. Since retirement, Dr. Gross has been busy writing both fiction and non-fiction. His published books include Manhunt (historical fiction), Animals Don’t Blush (a memoir of his first year in veterinary practice) and the soon-to-be rereleased, Succeeding As A Student (a self-help guide to efficient and effective studying, learning and test taking).

 

Northwest German Shepherd Rescue  is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization run solely on adoption fees and donations. The rescue serves German Shepherds in need. Our network of devoted foster families provides a safe haven to German Shepherds as they make their way to quality, loving homes of their own. All adoption fees are used to cover spay/neuter procedures, shots, worming, microchips, emergency boarding, food, medications, and other surgeries as needed for adoptable dogs.

 
Your donation will go directly to providing care for a German Shepherd in need. A donation of just $10 will cover one night of emergency boarding. $25 can provide food and supplies for one foster dog for two weeks. And there are many additional ways your generous donation can help: 
 
$15   - Pays for one microchip
$25   - A trip to the groomer to help a battered rescue dog show its best side to potential adopters
$100 - Vaccines to prevent rabies, distemper, and parvo for one dog
$200 - Nutritious dog food to feed 50 dogs for 2 weeks
$500 - Spay or neuter surgeries for four dogs
