For years, Janet Elder said ‘no’ to her son’s desperate pleas for a dog - even managing to hold firm after his heart-rending PowerPoint presentation featuring a happy family with a dog versus a sad family without one. Living in a tiny apartment and juggling jobs, there was no room in their lives for a dog.

Then, Janet was diagnosed with breast cancer. After months of gruelling treatment, granting Michael’s wish with a sweet, mischievous poodle called Huck seems the perfect antidote - an affirmation of life.

But when Janet's treatment finally allowed the family to take a vacation, little Huck had to be left behind with her dog-loving sister. In less than 24 hours Huck had slipped through the fence and run away. Broken-hearted, the family flew back immediately to find him. Moved by their plight, everyone in the small town of Ramsey - from school children to the police chief and the mayor - unites in a desperate race against the clock to find him. Searching in densely wooded areas in freezing conditions becomes an incredible test of faith.

Huck’s story - and those of the strangers who came together to rescue him - is a moving reminder that few things unite people more than a shared love of man's best friend.

About the Author

Janet Elder is a senior editor at The New York Times. She lives in Manhattan with her husband, Richard Pinsky, their son, Michael, and the family dog.

            Huck, the dog was, for the major part of the book missing. The story was more about the people than the dog.
