The weekend program for prison-raised service dogs sounded perfect. Pick up a puppy on Friday, return it on Sunday. A new puppy each year, no strings attached. Except that the golden labrador called Daisy is not a no-strings-attached kind of dog.

Sharron Kahn Luttrell was still mourning the death of her beloved German shepherd when she decided to volunteer as a weekend puppy raiser. Every Sunday she hands Daisy back to Keith, the prisoner who cares for and trains the dog during the week. Keith seems intimidating at first but his work with Daisy suggests he is calm and committed to his work and the two trainers fall into an easy rhythm with their handovers. Sharron finds that working with Daisy is making her a better, more patient mother to her children.

When Sharron discovers the horrifying crime that put Keith in prison, her faith in him is shattered, yet Daisy's unwavering trust helps Sharron to understand the man's struggle for redemption. Both Keith and Sharron start this unforgettable year believing they are training a puppy, but in truth, Daisy show her trainers the way, gently pushing them to grow up, let go and experience what it really means to sit, to stay and to love.

Sharron Kahn Luttrell is freelance writer and former newspaper reporter, whose articles have appeared in several US publications. She lives with her husband and two teenage children, and continues to volunteer as a weekend puppy raiser.
