In an Effort to Encourage Readers to Adopt Rescued Animals, Martha Steward Tells Story of Darby
Based on the true story of an adopted dog who finally found his home, “Darby’s Story” is a heartwarming family tale for readers and listeners alike. For Christmas one year, a single mother and her 5-year-old son decide to visit a local pet store chain to see whether any rescued dogs would be the right choice for them to adopt. Upon arrival, they saw many dogs in need of a good home and lots of love, but they were looking for that one special dog that would be perfect for them. Upon seeing Darby, they knew he was the right one. Steward writes:
The other dogs were nice and friendly, but there was a special connection between Darby, Drew, and myself. I was seeking a specific temperament – a combination of a certain kind of personality and behavior. For our household, a relaxed temperament was ideal. The looks of the dog or the special breed did not matter. After many licks, Darby just brushed up against me, as if he were giving me a hug. Drew, almost the same height as Darby, gave Darby a hug. In return, Darby gave a very wet lick up the side of Drew’s face. Those watching laughed at the surprise on Drew’s face and at the warm connection we seemed to share with the dog. We knew he was the dog to bring home.
Once settled into his new home as a part of the family, Darby’s family discovers his many likes and dislikes, including his love of Swiss cheese and frozen grapes and his dislike of leaving his family unprotected. Join Darby on his many adventures in “Darby’s Story: The Life of an Adopted Dog,” a wonderful story about the joys that an adopted dog can bring to any family.
