"Alvarez entices readers to see the town of Mayfield through the eyes of Benny as he creates a kinship with the dogs he walks for his neighbors and takes uncharted paths, twists and turns that give way to new adventures."-Kirkus Reviews If there are guardian angels among us, surely Benny is one of them. Gently challenged and benignly observant, he lives with his long-suffering mother in the quirky and charming town of Mayfield. Benny is qualified for only one job: walking dogs. At that task, he is without peer. But Benny is more than a simple friend to the town's canines; he brings the same guileless compassion to the people around him. Sweet and honest, offering poignant loyalty, he changes their lives. Life is not as simple as he seems. AUTHOR: Corwyn Alvarez (aka Official Ball Thrower for the Dog) lives in Bethesda, Maryland. He is the proud recipient of the Walter Mitty Writing Award from Accidental College and aspires to someday be a worthy road man for the lords of karma. He is currently at work on his next novel.
