A decade ago, Richard Corey sat down and wrote a book. Now it’s finally been published, and some of the proceeds are going to help local animals.
“Bloodline: The Doberman Family” follows the story of Lily the Doberman pinscher and her family, six little puppies and their father Buck. Raised in cages, the dogs work as security animals at a junkyard in Phoenix. After life gets tougher for the canine family, Lily decides that this is no life for her puppies. The dogs escape and the book goes on to chronicle their adventures as mom tries to provide a life free from hate and fear for her puppies.
Since writing this story, Corey said he has gone on to write five more books in the series, further chronicling the adventures of the dogs as they continue to make their way around Arizona, including some stops in a few places that would probably be familiar to Verde Valley residents.
