This time, she's partnered with Meg, a young girl who has been shuffled from one foster home to the next.
Meg is currently living with Granny Greer at Granny's animal shelter. It's her last chance to show that she can straighten up by doing community service and following the rules. After a near death experience, Meg finds that she can communicate telepathically with animals, and boy do those animals have a lot to say.
She meet Lacey the greyhound is back with another adventure. She meets Lacey and right away Lacey senses trouble in Meg's future. So much so that Lacey abandons her owner, Ryan, to keep an eye on Meg. With Granny in the hospital, Meg is left alone on the ranch with some pretty rough dudes and as she talks to the animals she begins to realize that things might not be as caring and loving there as they seem on the outside.
With the help of Lacey Blue, Dusty the retired race horse, and a couple of crazy cats, she sets out to expose the nefarious doings. This one is really over the top for adult readers unless one is, like me, totally enamored with animals. In that case, you'll love the conversations between the animals as well as the different animal characters who somehow manage to assist Meg in her quest for the truth. For young readers, this book should be a delight.
There is plenty of suspense as well as some humor. There are also lessons in loving and caring for our fellow creatures as well as some harder lessons in keeping those who are gone close to the heart.

According to author Cameron, it is reincarnation.
Bill Hart (Author of Lacey Blue and Friends)
The main character in this book starts out as Toby a hard luck dog that winds up being rescued by an unlicensed rescuer, but that ends badly. Our hero returns in his next incarnation in a puppy mill and suffers again, this time at the hands of a thoughtless owner. Through each incarnation the main character suffers and grows through the experience just as those who believe in the many lives philosophy think each human grows from multiple lives.
For a dog lover, it may be a little difficult to get through some of the sadder parts of the book and rest assured there are quite a few of them. You will want to have a good hankie or two at hand.

But in the end, the answer and meaning of all that suffering and pain is revealed. There are two cautions that should go along with this review, the first is that if you are deeply affected by the suffering of animals, this book may have a profound effect. Secondly, if your religious or spiritual beliefs find the idea of reincarnation as offensive or disturbing, you may also have a problem with this book.
There are quite a few books that try to tell a story from a dog's point of view. Bruce Cameron got it right with his first book. This reader is sure that people who love a good dog story and animal fiction will want to see more from this author. A good four star book. It's a story about an unwanted child and her animal friends finding a forever home.
When Meg dies in a car accident, but is then revived, she is changed forever. She now has the ability to talk to and understand animals. Posted by Lacey at 2: As I was walking in Stetson, Maine today, I found a baby snapping turtle. The little guy or girl was only about an inch in diameter. It is October 4th, late for turtles to be born, in my opinion, but I'm no turtle expert. I've seen them hatch in September before, but never October.
As I surveyed the weeds at my feet, I found three more of the little ones struggling through the weeds and along the road toward the pond just down the hill. In Maine, female turtles sometimes lay their eggs in the sand alongside roads that are close to brooks, rivers, and ponds. Then, when the offspring hatch, they make a dash, if you can call what those little ones were doing a dash, toward the water and safety. Unfortunately, they often wind up in the road and get killed by traffic.

All four of the turtles I found were either on the tar or making their way toward it. If they don't get killed by an automobile they often get eaten by a predator. While I have no business coming between a predator and its meal, I do think I should help baby turtles across the road or along it to the water.

I carried my four charges to the water's edge and let them go. They scurried into the water. They will soon burrow down in the mud for a long winter's nap and emerge next spring. Some people do not like turtles and blame them for eating baby ducks and fish. While it is true that baby ducks and fish may be on their menu, who are we to tell turtles what to eat? If humans enjoy eating ducks, then why shouldn't a turtle have the same rights? Some people will even go out of their way to hit a turtle that is crossing the street in order to kill it.
This makes egg laying females particularly vulnerable. Human tampering and the introduction of non-indigenous species has upset the balance of eco-systems all over the globe. Sometimes great harm is done by one careless person. Therefore, should I interfere with nature and help the baby turtles or should I let them fend for themselves?
In my opinion, since some human beings go out of their way to kill them and we've built a road through their hatching grounds, it is reasonable for me to butt in and give them a helping hand. Maybe, in some small way, it makes up for the people who foolishly kill them. I have another friend who has the same problem, dangerous encounters with humans. I call him Elvis. He is a porcupine that lives in the woods near my home and hangs out in my yard.
Since I live far from a busy road I think Elvis is safe as long as he doesn't meet a hungry fisher cat, the only natural predator that will kill and eat porcupines The only other threat to his safety would be an encounter with a local nimrod with a gun. Some people believe that porcupines are destructive to forests and will shoot them when they get a chance.
This is nonsense, and most people in Maine are kind and respect the environment and wildlife. The people who kill for foolish reasons are a very small minority, but that doesn't make a difference to the animals they kill. While we may not think of wild animals very often, they have to think about us all the time, to be constantly vigilant, because any encounter with a human, whether he or she is toting a gun or driving a car, may be fatal. It is interesting to note that one of the baby turtles I held in my hand may live longer than me if it has a chance.
Once it has grown to a certain size the only thing it will have to fear is human beings. Snapping turtles have lived 47 years in captivity and in the wild it's thought that they live upwards of thirty years. I'll never know, if I'm lucky and if the turtles are lucky, I'll never see them again. Like many events in life, ours was a brief encounter that may have made all the difference to them and brought me a few moments of joy.
Posted by Lacey at 4: Posted by Lacey at 6: Hi Lacey here, Just wanted you to know that my book received an award and oh yeah, Bill did an interview that you can read at A Story Book World Now that he got interviewed I spose there'll be no living with him for a month. We'll probably have to have the door widened just to get his head through it. Well there's always something. Posted by Lacey at 8: By Wil Langford In his first book, newspaper columnist W. Posted by Lacey at Throughout history, strong women have posed a problem for men and sometimes even for themselves.
I can imagine there were a lot of people in high places that would have preferred that Betty Ford would keep her problem hidden from the world, but she didn't and her courage, as a leader, changed many lives for the better. As a writer, strong female characters have caused some problems for me as well. It isn't that I'm afraid of them or don't know how to write about them. The problem is that I like to write about them so much, sometimes they take over my stories, like "Lacey Blue and Friends, A Greyhound Story. The answer is, they just show up. The story started out as a book about a courageous little greyhound dog, but suddenly her mother became a strong and wise female and then there was a teen aged girl who was dealing with a disability, a rocky romance, and loss.

Next there was her sister, the veterinarian, who was strong and spoke out for what was right, even though it would hurt her career. The next thing I knew another woman who lived alone in the desert and rehabilitated animals took on a very bad man and tried to stop a dog fighting ring. You get the idea?
