When a rescue dog named Duffy arrives in Heaven, neither limitless bowls of chow nor bottomless barrels of rawhide can take away the longing for his “folks” back home. Then he meets Rex, a literary easterner of the Boston Terrier persuasion, who encourages Duffy to write his life story. From a harrowing start in a hayloft, to a prolonged stay in a shelter, to his new life with an adoring childless couple, from puppyhood to neuterhood and beyond, Duffy relives his tale through the written word with the help of his new cultured friend. But how do two dogs –let alone two no longer even residing on earth – find a publisher?

Gary Porter

As told here, Duffy Porter was born in a barn. He lived a happy and full life with his adopted parents, prior to publishing Duffy: The Tale of a Terrier posthumously. Gary Porter was not born in a barn, but rather in a hospital in Iowa. He is a retired professor of accounting and an author of numerous textbooks. He lives with his wife Melissa in Hudson, Wisconsin, where they actively support animal rescue and welfare organizations. Their latest adoptee, Polly, a black-and-white Pointer/Setter mix, has yet to write her story.
