Finding a Forever Home : True Tales from Channel 4’s ‘The Dog House’

‘It “mutt” be love! Adopting a rescue pup is life-changing, as a book about hit show The Dog House proves’ The People

Sometimes it’s love at first sight. Sometimes it takes a while. But the staff at Woodgreen are always there to look after their canine guests until they find the right permanent home. From big to small and pedigree to the scruffiest pooch, no effort is spared to find each and every one a new family who will give them the love they deserve.

Rehoming a dog is a big commitment, but also a privilege and a huge joy when the right match is made. Finding a Forever Home introduces Rocky, a gentle giant of a Newfoundland who helped a young boy recover his appetite for food and for life; feisty wee Westie Norman who made a bereaved mother and her autistic son a complete family again, and Pebbles who helped former Paralympian David – on a downward spiral after appendicitis forced him to pull out of the 2012 London Games – and enabled him to calm down, lighten up and to finally find joy in life with his new canine friend. These are just some of the heart-warming and inspiring stories of once-lost dogs, their new families and their journeys beyond The Dog House.

SNAP DECISIONS CAN BE DANGEROUS . . .

On a stifling summer’s day, eleven-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. Jack’s in charge, she’d said. I won’t be long.

But she doesn’t come back. She never comes back. And life as the children know it is changed for ever.

Three years later, Jack is still in charge – of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they’re alone in the house, and – quite suddenly – of finding out the truth about what happened to his mother . . .


Two Metres From You by Heidi Stephens

LOVE MIGHT BE CLOSER THAN YOU THINK . . .

Gemma isn’t sure what upsets her more. The fact she just caught her boyfriend cheating, or that he did it on her brand-new Heal’s cushions.

All she knows is she needs to put as many miles between her and Fraser as humanly possible. So, when her best friend suggests a restorative few days in the West Country, it seems like the perfect solution.

That is, until the country enters a national lockdown that leaves her stranded. All she has for company is her dog, Mabel. And the mysterious (and handsome!) stranger living at the bottom of her garden . . .


The Dream Weavers by Barbara Erskine

A love story that will echo through the centuries

A couple torn apart…

The year is 775AD, and the Saxon King Offa rules with cold ambition. His daughter, Eadburh, destined for an arranged marriage, is devastated when her true love is torn from her. Angry and passionate, she rebels – and her defiance may lead to war.

A past that will not stay buried

Centuries later, unsettling visions disturb a cottage hidden amongst the Welsh hills, and Bea begins to have haunting nightmares. The past is calling – and Eadburh is trying to exact her revenge. As dreams and reality weave closer together, will Bea have the strength to resist the secrets of the Saxons?


The Museum of Broken Promises by Elizabeth Buchan

Paris, today. The Museum of Broken Promises is a place of wonder and sadness, hope and loss. Every object in the museum has been donated – a cake tin, a wedding veil, a baby’s shoe. And each represent a moment of grief or terrible betrayal. The museum is a place where people come to speak to the ghosts of the past and, sometimes, to lay them to rest. Laure, the owner and curator, has also hidden artefacts from her own painful youth amongst the objects on display.

Prague, 1985. Recovering from the sudden death of her father, Laure flees to Prague. But life behind the Iron Curtain is a complex thing: drab and grey yet charged with danger. Laure cannot begin to comprehend the dark, political currents that run beneath the surface of this communist city. Until, that is, she meets a young dissident musician. Her love for him will have terrible and unforeseen consequences.

It is only years later, having created the museum, that Laure can finally face up to her past and celebrate the passionate love which has directed her life.
