Miracle Man: 100 Days with Oliver
For Oliver and his owner, author Bobby Haas, accepting failure has never been an option. This is poignantly illustrated when an injured Oliver finds himself in a fight for his life after a tumble down an embankment leaves his hindquarters paralyzed. When conditions worsen and the prospect of "putting Oliver down" becomes a reality, Haas refuses to give up on his fourteen-year-old best friend. At the bedside of a barely-conscious Oliver, Haas asks him for just 100 more days--100 days in which to cherish every moment together. In the struggle that ensues, Haas never loses faith in his companion, and the pup proves his mettle. In this tale of uncomplicated love, Haas reveals intimate details about himself and his own crises. It is as much a journey of self-discovery as it is one of helping his best friend along the road of recovery. Not just for animal lovers, "Miracle Man: 100 Days with Oliver" will resonate with anyone who has waded through tough times and somehow made it to the other side.
