Even if you don’t believe in love at first sight, it’s impossible to deny the instant connection between a dog and the owner that’s meant for them. I remember how startlingly easy it was for me to pick the dog I wanted to meet as I strolled through my local shelter twelve years ago, and it took about five minutes in the meet-and-greet yard to know the deal was sealed. Even today, I can’t imagine a dog more perfect for my family.

It always makes me smile to see other pets and owners discovering their Happily Ever Afters, but one particular story is so special that it even inspired a children’s book! Naturally, the puppy who changed everything is named Magic, and the way she fits into her family’s life is, well–magical!
She’s well-beloved in mom Bekah Cowley’s home, but she’s bonded the most with the young daughter of the family, Luna. And now that the duo are growing up together, Bekah put together a children’s book so that Luna will always remember the special bond they have.
What a beautiful story! It’s easy to see why @bekahcowley wanted to turn this into a children’s book for Luna (and the rest of the world) to cherish. With the help of her sister and a talented illustrator, this dedicated mom made it happen.

For now, Luna and Magic’s story is available as an e-book on Amazon, though a hard copy will be available soon. It’s the story of Magic, the formerly stray dog, and Luna, the loving little girl, told through the eyes of the people who watched their adventures unfold. I can’t picture anything more perfect for a kid and her dog!
Taking in a Stray Dog
As inspiring as Luna and Magic’s story may be, it’s important to remember that not every encounter with a stray dog will be like something out of a fairy tale. For many, earning a stray animal’s trust takes time, patience, and a few dog treats. Many rescued dogs also require a vet visit to rule out health concerns and treat ongoing issues, but with enough love and care, any dog can become their best self!
In Luna’s case, though, all she had to do was approach the black and white puppy! They met about 10 months ago when Magic was just a tiny stray pup in Bekah’s parents’ yard. While she was too skittish to approach any adults, she loved Luna just as instantly as Luna loved her. If you ask me, ‘meant to be’ doesn’t even begin to cover it!
