Soon, they meet their neighbor, Claire, and learn that she’s in the midst of intense divorce proceedings. She’s unemployed and looking for work wherever she can find it.Offering what was initially to be a brief pet-sitting favor, Skip quickly discovers her animals are suffering from neglect.

Claire is gone for days—even weeks—at a time looking for employment, and reluctantly gives consent to Skip to provide them with food and water, as well as veterinary care. He’s even going to the trouble of finding new homes for some of the luckier ones.

Tensions between Claire and Skip mount, as she realizes that she can’t provide adequate care for her pets, but doesn’t want anyone else interfering with her life.Through a nerve-wracking year of frustrations, Skip finds himself drawn into an unusually strong bond with Blackie—a quiet mixed breed of middle-age—to whom the other animals cling for emotional stability. In a dramatic confrontation, Claire agrees to allow Skip to care for Blackie indefinitely in his home.

The pack awaiting Blackie is wary of this “intruder,” but with Skip’s coaxing and Blackie’s patient demeanor, the newcomer is soon welcomed with open paws.Blackie finally learns what it is like to be worry-free and happy. Games are invented, adventures are taken, and lessons are learned—not only by the furries, but by Skip and Mary as well. Blackie’s odyssey reveals surprising respect, mutual devotion, and enduring love, as dogs and humans learn more about life and each other than any of them could have ever imagined.When rescuer ultimately becomes the rescued, the story comes full circle, confirming the existence of magic and wonder in everyday life.

Skip paints for the world a picture of true love between humans and dogs as they live in intimate partnership. Memorable characters in this emotionally rich story will stay with the reader long past the final page.
