A Young Boy’s Love for Dogs Leads To His Related Success in Life

By Staff Writer  
Author weaves an engaging story of the love and commitment of a man and his dogs

Frisco, TX — How does one divide his time among his Priorities when his dogs take center stage in his life above all else? Readers are about to find out as its author Stuart R. Schwartz tells a beautiful tale of how a young boy’s interest in dogs pushed him to become a successful dog handler - and how this passion revolves so much around him. The Show Judge invites everyone to feel the depths of his dedication and commitment to his passion.

Young Curtis Edwards scraps most of anything that interests him in favor of salvaging the life of a stray dog that he finds at a local junk yard. Curtis’ interest is piqued one evening as he stumbles across a televised dog show in progress. He decides to learn how to show dogs like the professionals and uses his junk yard pal, “Hubcap”, as his learning mate.

Curtis becomes a “child prodigy” dog handler and later in life, while working as an administrator for a large animal hospital in Chicago, goes on to become a famous dog handler, and ultimately becomes a top level show judge. He develops a love interest with a flight attendant, Cyndi, who has visited his animal hospital with her ailing dog. But will the love affair work out or eventually come apart as a result of Curtis’ vast schedule of work and show handling commitments?

In New York, a young girl, Stephanie, convinces her mother and father to buy a Golden Retriever as a pet. Through a series of coincidences, her dog, “Dusty”, becomes a handsome show dog. Unbeknownst to Stephanie, her father is a small-time racketeer who only has a peripheral interest in Stephanie’s love for her dog.

What would happen when Curtis and Dusty meet at the big dog show at Madison Square Garden in New York City? Readers will soon find out as they follow these interesting characters in a series of unusual events that ultimately lead to the fateful meeting of Curtis and Dusty.
