This is a wonderful, heartfelt story about relationships, both human and canine. Our human hero Rick, who finds his talent in writing and who also, finds the need to become a prepper. Our canine hero Opus, who has a way of making his wants and desires known and watches out for the people he loves. Ricks girlfriend Tina, is a wonderful woman who has overcome her fears with the help of Opus and is just what Rick needed. Great writing and Kevin Pierce makes it that much more enjoyable.
