A DIFFERENT KIND OF CHAMPION

cover of Windward Island by Karleen Bradford

SUMMARY

“Hey, Jag,” Kevin said, “did you hear that Trace won best puppy at the show last weekend? That gives him his first points. He’ll be a champion by the spring at this rate.” Jag felt blood roaring in his ears. He hauled angrily on Ranny’s lead.

Jag’s beautiful golden retriever has lost a leg and Jag has lost his dream of her becoming a champion. She’ll never be a winner now. And once again, Kevin, his arch rival, will come out on top.
