Summary, Etc. In the tradition of the 'Marley and Me' and 'Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love', 'Piglet' is a charming, inspirational memoir about empathy, resilience, kindness, and an adorable deaf blind pink do
Summary, Etc. When Shapiro, a Connecticut veterinarian, got a call about a tiny deaf blind puppy rescued from a hoarding situation in need of fostering, little did she know how it would transform her, her family, and legions of admirers destined to embrace the saga of the indomitable pink pup. Weighing under two pounds, Piglet connected, gained confidence, and an extraordinary spirit emerged. When the day arrived to say good-bye to the now six-pound pink boy dog with the larger than life spirit, Shapiro's family decided to make a permanent place for him. She shows how a special little puppy with a purpose was able to teach the power of empathy, love, and kindness. -- adapted from jack
