The Dog That Saved My Life: A WWII Story

Wednesday, August 28 - 6:00 PM

Author Nancy Roe Pimm and WWII veteran Bill Wynne will discuss their new book SMOKY, THE DOG THAT SAVED MY LIFE as part of the Buckeye Book Fair's "Authors on the Vine" series held at Troutman Vineyards.

World War II soldier Bill Wynne met Smoky while serving in New Guinea, where the dog, who was smaller than Wynne’s army boot, was found trying to scratch her way out of a foxhole. After he adopted her, Smoky served as the squadron mascot and is credited as being the first therapy dog for the emotional support she provided the soldiers.

The audience will learn about World War II from an unusual perspective, witnessing the power of the bond between a soldier and his dog, and seeing how that bond continued through the exciting years following the war.

$12 ticket includes your first glass of wine. Books are available for purchase and signing following the program.

Program will be held at Troutman Vineyards, 4243 Columbus Rd (St Rte 3), Wooster OH 44691.
