Giveaway: Scent of the Missing

It’s cold. It’s dark. And you need something to read to get your mind off the apocalypse.

How about Scent of the Missing? Here’s the description:

In the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing, Susannah Charleson clipped a photo from the newspaper of an exhausted canine handler, face buried in the fur of his search-and-rescue dog. A dog lover and pilot with search experience herself, Susannah was so moved by the image that she decided to volunteer with a local canine team and soon discovered firsthand the long hours, nonexistent pay, and often heart-wrenching results they face. Once she qualified to train a dog of her own, she adopted Puzzle, a strong, bright Golden Retriever puppy who exhibited unique aptitudes as a working dog but who was less interested in the role of compliant house pet. Scent of the Missing is the story of Susannah and Puzzle’s adventures as they search for the missing—a lost teen, an Alzheimer’s patient wandering in the cold, signs of the crew amid the debris of the space shuttle Columbia disaster—and unravel the mystery of the bond between humans and dogs.

    If I am up that late, I’m reading a book or websurfing, usually with a warm dog sleeping on my feet.

    I would either be reading a good book or doing some research online while snuggling with my fuzzy puppy. Nothing beats the comfort a dog gives just by being near. :)
