Welcome Home is the story of Jake, a large black Labrador Retriever mix.  For as long as Jake can remember, he has been having the same dream.  In his dream, he lives with a wonderful man in a beautiful home.  Jake has never seen the face of the man in the dream; however, he knows his voice and he loves him.  Jake is certain that when he is old enough to be given away to a new home, he will be chosen by the man from his dream.  When the day finally arrives, Jake is very excited to finally meet the man that has filled his dreams.  However, the man that chooses Jake is definitely not the man from his dream!  Jake is taken to a home where he is terribly mistreated.  During this time, Jake never gives up the hope of finding the man from the dream.  After suffering years of abuse, Jake finally escapes and is free to begin his search for the man he has been dreaming of his entire life.  Along the way, Jake meets some interesting characters, survives amazing adventures, and forms life-long friendships.  Join Jake on his incredible journey home.

Dr. Billi Tiner has been a veterinarian for over 10 years. She was inspired to write Jake’s story by the many amazing animals she has met during her career as well as the incredible stories she has heard describing how owners were united with their beloved pets.  Though the stories vary, there is a theme that connects them all; the idea that the animals “chose” them to be their owners and “somehow knew” they belonged together.

Welcome Home is intended for children ages 10-12.  For more information visit Tiner Books on Facebook or contact Billi Tiner at tinerbooks@kinwick.com.
