Cowboy and Wills

Author Monica Holloway shares the extraordinary, touching story of Cowboy, the Golden Retriever puppy who changed her son’s life in the upcoming October book, Cowboy & Wills: A Love Story .

It looks to be a tearjerker, though, as the video below speaks to Cowboy only having 2 1/2 years to work his magic.

Monica Holloway wrote the riveting memoir, Driving with Dead People, in which she tells the terrible tale of her cruel father, a man who turned his wife into a functionless robot and raped little Monica regularly. For many years, Holloway did not remember any of it. To read this memoir is to understand the mechanics of life-long repression.
