(PDF KINDLE) [Haatchi Little B] ☆ Wendy Holden

Haatchi Little BTy of man about those willing to go the extra mile and a half to save a soulful Anatolian Shepherd found dying on a railway track and facing certain death Haatchi Little B The Inspiring True Story of One Boy and His Dog is a magical story of how fate brought a three pawed gentle giant to a loving little boy and a forever home Dog and boy would always reuire special attention due to their own special needs but HOW did the Fates now that placing Haatchi with Little B would be the perfect saving grace for both My guess Karma the BEST Sleep with the Fishes kind of Karma that brought about the best of everyone that came in contact with the Howkin s and their beloved dog HaatchiEast London January 9 2012 was a night of horror for the Anatolian Shepherd puppy That someone had intentionally placed the animal in harm s way is certain After being struck by the train tail and back leg horribly mangled the dog managed to crawl to partial safety where he was found bleeding to death Cruel intentions were thwarted on this bitter night A dog was about to change the lives of manyLess than 50 miles away Little B Little Buddy was facing struggles of his own diagnosed with a rare conditionnown as Schwartz Jampel syndromeThis is a story about a boy and his dog and how each found strength courage and independence from the other It was as if Little B had been a bud waiting for the light and love of Haatchi to wake his flowerI have to say when I picked up this book received as an ARC giveaway for review I was in a depressed state of mind feeling sorry for myself and brooding over the horrible week I d had As I began reading the first few chapters I started crying tears of sorrow How can a human treat a dog so cruelly WHY When dog and boy were introduced and began to heal each other I REALLY cried tears of joy my faith in humanity restored Haatchi and Little B s story has once again touched someone s life and managed to bring about a smile and inspiration to my day Powerful stuff Some people here do claim of too many details or lack of details flat style of writing etcI would agree on the fact that the language although my English is not my native but still I can differentiate could be interesting and the sentences not so simple BUTI would really state that this book and maybe it s just a period in my life and mind it fitted very well to right now is one of the best STORIES I have ever readHow little do we have stories about those dogs rescued from shelters and being in a minute from being put asleep How little do we care and want to SEE the beauty of the disabled people well especially in my countryThis book is not much about plot and great turns of it but so much about JUST a family JUST ordinary people Coleen and Will JUST a BOY Owen and JUST A DOG HaatchiIt shows perfectly how cruel and disgusting people can be and how giving and able for big deals the people can beHighly recommended to any passionate dog lover and to any person who thinks that dogs are JUST dogs I have no words to say how beautiful this story was The friendship between Owen who suffers from a rare disease and a huge anatolian shepherd Haatchi was truly heartwarming and inspiring to read and showed how much good there s still in the world I definitely recommend it I read and showed how much good there s still in the world I definitely recommend it I this book from a contest on GoodreadsA defenseless five month old Anatolian Shepherd had been clubbed over his head into unconsciousness and was tied to railroad tracks to end it s life But by a miracle of God this amber eyed puppy was found and taken to RSPCA s Harmsworth Memorial Animal Hospital Hid tail and left rear paw were mangled and the vet removed both the tail and the whole leg Even with the immense cruelty this young pup had endured by a human he was happy to greet any and all of the staff while in recovery with a wee lick and gentle nudge It just amazed and surprised everyone on staff what a gentle and sweet disposition he had But this large breed will need many visits to the vets and operations during the course of his life which few people could afford or handle They

T started reading this book I thought the author was simply a bad storyteller but as I read I realized the feeling was exactly like reading an extremely long magazine or news site article complete with paid promotions I have stumbled across this feeling before with books constructed of blog posts put in chronological event order but this story is lesser than that at least bloggers are usually skilled at storytelling in a literary sort of way This book was too journalistic in feel and very media shaded The author would include the same accolades given to Little B and Haatchi almost word for word and then name drop over and over and over again and again wasting space that could have been used for telling Little B and Haatchi s personal story The book read like a patchwork of celebrity type People Magazine parenting periodical wedding mag psychology self help and dog fancy publication articles with some dry newspaper articles thrown in for good measure After I finished the book and looked at the author s bio on the side of the Goodreads page I was not surprised to see she is a journalistA significant chunk of this book is given to an engagement wedding and honeymoon with too many details about the parents marital hopes and dreams and minutiae about the wedding event down to a description of why each guest was specifically invited and a word for word uotation of their mile long personal wedding vows like it was written for the socialites section of a newspaper or a celebrity wedding article in People magazine What about Little B s hopes and dreams A story about a boy and his dog this is notI will be doing a blog post on how many of the true dog stories I have read lately have not been much than brag books about the owners themselves I will add the link when it is posted Being part of the story I admit to being rather bias with my rating Having read most of the reviews I was concerned to see several people stating they would have liked to have seen pictures I can only assume that if you received a free copy it came without them as I can assure you there are definitely pictures in it as I took most of them The Kindle edition also has the pictures at the very end so it is important to scroll through the acknowledgement in order to reach them Our goal from the beginning has and always will be to introduce Schwartz Jampel Syndrome to the world stage and we are pleased that this book is doing this for us and all the others who live with this condition Thank you to every one of you who have and ever will read it we are truly grateful for your precious timeFor info the author they have described on this site is not the same Wendy Holden who wrote our book Our Wendy is from Suffolk and this is her websitehttpwwwwendyholdencom I really enjoyed this book about sweet Owen who has a rare genetic disease and his dog Haatchi These two overcame many odds to be together and it was great to read about how they found each other Owen and Haatchi had many struggles but they worked through them and are a great team The only small problem that I had with this book was that it could be a bit choppy at times and at others it seemed to ramble on a bit Even so I appreciated that there were so many important pieces to this story that the author wanted tell and perhaps that is why it goes on a bit at times Overall I found and Haatchi s story very touching and I loved how everything worked out at times Overall I found Owen and Haatchi s story very touching and I loved how everything worked out they could be together They have an amazing family and lots of support and I hope to hear about their adventures in the future I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads Thank you I was really excited to win this book on Goodreads Giveaways I did like this book but I had higher expectations for it I did enjoy reading the story and I appreciate the difficulties of writing about animals but I think the narrative style fell flat for meOne reviewer on Goodreads faulted the book for having too much detail I fault it for not having enough I guess you can t please everyone For me the book lacked imagery and I felt Holden was simply tellingthe story instead of showing the story It made it hard to connect to the characters I understood the constant POV shift in chapter one when she focuses on Haatchi and what happened to him He is after all a dog and cannot tell his own story although there is the chapter at the end For me chapter two was were I noticed a lack of imagery especially as she introduces Ownand his parents There is a shifting POV as she focuses on perspectives from Kim and Owen and sometimes lacks smooth transitions I felt the paragraphs were short and under developed which led to my lack of connection with the characters I also think the book needs pictures I can t believe I am making that statement as an English teacher but I think that would help The lack of pictures could be because this is an advanced reader copy but I am saddened this is not in my copy since this will be added to my classroom library Most non fiction novels about people and animals use pictures to help the audience establish connections and care about the experiences of the charactersWith that being said I think my high school students will enjoy this book I can see this book being popular in my classroom and I cannot wait to put it in the hands of my students I did enjoy this story and I am glad that I read it Haatchi Little B The Inspiring True Story of One Boy and His am glad that I read it Haatchi Little B The Inspiring True Story of One Boy and His is such an incredible story of love devotion courage sacrifice healing and forgiveness It s an inspiring true story of heroic people that refuse to be defeated by the inhumane cruel. Ora os veterinários não tenham conseguido salvar lhe a pata e cauda Um apelo no Facebook chamou a atenção de um casal de bom coração Colleen Drummond e Will Howkins ue também são o pai e a madrasta de Owen conhecido na família como Little B ou seja Little Buddy «amiguinho» Um olhar para o focinho expressivo de Haatchi disse lhes tudo o ue precisavam de saber e o sortudo cão mudou se para casa da família Ho. ,
I received an advanced copy of this book from First Reads in exchange for an honest reviewThis book was very powerful for me I have an intense love for my dogs and think of them as my furbabies In addition I have a stepdau I was a goodreads firstreads winner of this wonderful heartwarming book If you love dogs and ids this is a perfect match Get ready to have a hanky on hand Haatchi an Anatolian Shepherd was abandoned on a train rail track he was beaten by a cruel sub human and left to die he was hit by the train and it destroyed his back leg and tail he was only five months old He was rescued had surgery that removed his back leg and tail He was named Haatchi in honor of another dog who made history for waiting for his owner by the train in Japan til his death two months later Colleen a dog lover is looking for a dog she comes across a picture of Haatchi in the adoption page Colleen is looking for a dog who would be good match for a little boy named Owen also nicknamed little B her fiance is the father of Owen Little B was born with a rare illness called Schwartz Jampel syndrome Owen s mother Kim and his dad are divorced by Kim is very much in the picture this disability causes Owens muscles to be permanently tense and very painful and causes Owen to be in a wheelchair Haatchi is soon adopted by Colleen and Will her future husband it is a match made in HeavenHaatchi and Little B are soon best of friends they become uite famous throughout England both Haatchi and Owen still have many hurdles to cross both face surgeries Haatchi has surgery on his other back leg and little B has surgeries of his own both are loved by the public who are touched by this boy and his dog a wonderful read I especially loved the parts that were about Haatchi and his buddy Little B so lucky to get to read this book I would have happily bought a copy when it came out Before I get jumped on by Little B and Haatchi lovers let me say I love LOVE love Little B and Haatchi too What I didn t love was this book and the author Read my updates for some of the pronounced problems I had with this book If you love Owen and Haatchi you are better off going to their Facebook page and their other social media outlets and learning about them thereThe summary promises a boy and his dog story but it is really a book about the parents sacrifices and an unabashed neverending commercial for a raw meat dog food company that has given Haatchi free food for life The title should be Our Difficult Lives with Little B and Haatchi A Story About Free Dog Food for Life The parents lives are sometimes described down to the minutiae but Owen s Little B s thoughts feelings and experiences are generalized and sometimes even glossed overThings that made me take pauseThe importance given to an idea that the person who left Haatchi on the railroad tracks may have been Eastern European had nothing to do with the story Even if it had been a fact what does that have to do with the story People of all nationalities do horrific things to animals Then at the end of the book the author had to make one prejudice swipe about a man with darker skin and dark hair Why Then there was the use of the term red indians instead of Native Americans and the description of using a humorous stereotyped action to distract Owen during a medical proceedure Why not just say the parent made funny faces instead Did Owen s parents read this book Were they okay with these things I hope not Would Little B be happy a book about him has such inclusions Where were the editorsIt was mentioned several times in the book that the many public exhibitions and events they took Haatchi to were to dispell people s unfounded fears and impressions about Anatolian Shepherds but comparisons A World on Fire kept being made using the word unlike as in Haatchi s calm friendly tolerant nature was not like a typical dog of that breed So how is that helping the public s view if it is saying most of the breed s members are not typically good natured Let s take a moment for a group head scratchThis story was supposed to also support adopting special needs rescues specifically tripod dogs but the bookept saying how fragile three legged dogs health is in general needing pricey special foods cue one of many raw meat diet commercials and expensive life long physiotherapy I have nown four tripods and once they are recovered from their surgery their overall health is the same as any other dog There was no need for special anything People are going to be even less receptive to adopting these hard to place pets if they think it is going to bankrupt them What gets me is the family goes to all this extra expense and trouble paid for by charitable contributions by the way but they allowed ice to build up on their back patio and let Haatchi go out there to play and slip up on their back patio and let Haatchi go out there to play and slip ice re injuring his remaining back leg and reuiring surgery and expensive hydrotherapy treatments let us pause for another head scratchThis next sentiment left me seething Owen s physical problems occur because of a genetic disease He was the first grandchild on both sides of his family and near the end of the book it is stated that when a pregnancy is announced in the family it is darkened by the thought of this disease but when the baby is born perfect it is cause for an extra jubilant celebration Why not celebrate a new family member to love with the same jubilation no extra jubilant celebration Why not celebrate a new family member to love with the same jubilation no how perfect or imperfect and just as an a new family member to love with the same jubilation no how perfect or imperfect and just as an have a humble sigh of relief I get the idea but it was presented in the wrong context I hope Little B never reads this bookNow about the writing itselfWhen I firs.
