“Who Said I Was Up For Adoption?”

Written by Colin Chappell, “Who Said I Was Up For Adoption?” is the epitome of a Doggone Good Read! The uniqueness of this book is truly second to none, with readers gaining not only the author’s perspectives, but also their spin on what Ray must be thinking and feeling throughout his adoption experiences!

All net profits of this book are donated to the Oakville & Milton Humane Society! Who doesn’t love a feel-good cause?

Chappell takes his readers on a transparent journey through the process of rescuing a dog. He vulnerably shares about his fears and hesitancies to adopt a dog, especially one with a heartrending history like Ray’s. He highlights beautiful examples of the power of the human-animal bond, and suddenly a story unfolds about two souls who learned to trust, listen to, respect, and wholly love one another.

Readers can expect to gain powerful insights into responsible dog ownership, such as the necessity to say “No” and advocate when your dog’s well-being might be at stake. Additionally, this book provides a sense of clarity into how animals communicate with us, if we take the opportunity to really listen. Accounting for experiences commonplace to many, if not all, pet owners, Chappell also sheds light on how he navigated a difficult decision-making process related to Ray’s health.

By its end, you’ll learn to really know Ray. You’ll laugh at his love for pepperoni, feel pride in his local celebrity status, smile at all of his tail-wagging moments, and maybe even shed a happy tear! Best of all though, you’ll admire the loving bond between man and his best friend!


I cannot conclude this review without a well-deserved acknowledgement of the beautiful design of this book! A rarity in adult literature, this book is published in color and is replete with a series of Ray photos that are sure to put a smile on any reader’s face! Click to get your own copy here!

Welcome! In a world where time is a valuable, precious component of life, I am ever so grateful for the personal time you are taking to read about me and how I began Sit, Stay, Blog! In 2018, I graduated with a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and in 2016 I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology, with a minor in Sociology. While attending my undergraduate institution, I involved myself in a plethora of unique activities which undoubtedly provided me with memorable experiences and a motivation to document and share these experiences with others. One of my most monumental experiences to date has involved being the first student to ever raise and train a service dog, Pinella, at my undergraduate institution. With that experience came both challenges and inspiring moments that I hope to share with you along this magnificent journey of Sit, Stay, & Blog. My primary goal is to connect with my readers on a personal level and create content that is meaningful and relevant to everyone’s interests. I am forever grateful for your support of Sit, Stay, & Blog, and it is my genuine hope that you visit my blog page and enjoy the content provided throughout! -T.

  1. Many thanks for reviewing “Who Said I was up for Adoption?”, and I was pleased that it resonated so well with you. However, I would like to clarify for your readers that all net profits will go to the Oakville & Milton Humane Society (who initially rescued Ray), and not “all net sales” as noted in the Post.
