In this heartwarming tale, Kai the Minnesota-born yellow Labrador Retriever recounts how she and her two dads adopted her human brothers. With a unique canine perspective, we learn about the arrival of Isaac in 1999 and then Jason in 2002. Relying upon her innate ability to see things through the eyes of obedient devotion known only to a young yellow lab dog, Kai delivers a gift of love through her words and stories that will make readers laugh and cry as they follow Kai's amazing journey to create her own pack. Proceeds from this book will go to The Sharing Foundation, a non-profit organization which empowers young lives in Southeast Asian orphanages.
