One of our members, Amy Lawrence-Loughlin, has written a children's book called "For the Love of Gus". It is a true story about Gus, a Great Dane rescue here in Austin, whose really big heart led him to find his really big forever family. The book chronicles all the lives he touched in his journey to find his forever home. A portion of the proceeds of the book will go to PAWS of Austin and Austin Pets Alive.

Amy is having a book signing at Half-Price Books at 5555 N. Lamar on February 9th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. The real life Gus will be there too, as well as PAWS. This is the Half-Price Books on N. Lamar and Koenig next to the big Goodwill. There will be a limited number of books at Half-Price Books to buy and have Amy sign, but you can find the book on-line at or for a really good price. You can order it now and get it in time to bring to the book signing for Amy to sign. Amy is working on making the book available at Book People as well.

I've spoken to the manager at Half-Price Books and we are welcome to bring our furkids if they are well-behaved and of course, on leash. If everyone attends throughout the afternoon, then we won't have too many in the store at one time, which he would appreciate.

Help Amy support PAWS of Austin by buying her book. Even if you don't have kids, I'm sure you will enjoy the book and you'll get to meet the star of the book, the real-life Gus. And Gus has his own Facebook page at For the Love of Gus.
