There is a remarkable bond between an ex-serviceman, a "wounded warrior", and a professionally trained service dog, Tuesday, who helps with Fmr. Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan's physical and emotional challenges. Not only does Luis have terrible physical pain, he needs Tuesday, a big handsome and smart Golden Retriever, to provide a certain calm and centering throughout the day. Be sure to note the sox that Mr. Montalvan wears! This is such a moving story and the cover tells you everything about this beautiful relationship between man and his very best friend." ~Judy
As narrated by Tuesday, "Tuesday Tucks Me In" is a day in the life of this service dog extraordinaire and tail-wagging ambassador for all things positive and uplifting in the world. The book takes us through a typical day of adventures, starting with Tuesday waking military veteran Luis Carlos Montalvan in the morning and greeting him with dog breath in the face, and then ending with Tuesday cuddling up to Luis on their bed, the last moment they spend together before sleep.
