Book 4 of the
Requires Rescue Series
Sometimes even the strong
requires a helping hand.
The largest, strongest dog in the pack was miserable. He was born to be a leader, yet he wasn’t. He was born to be special, yet he wasn’t. He was called “Grumpy” by the humans. And while he was grumpy and sad, he had every right to be. This was not the life he was meant to have!
When Sean, Molly, and Eliza returned to their home, the mass of twenty-five giant Shiloh Shepherds frightened Eliza. She wanted her puppies! Still, she could see the great sadness in the massive dog’s eyes as he crawled submissively into her room. Her father explained that Grumpy expected to be pack leader, but none of the dogs will accept him.
She objected to his name at once, and once Sean discovered how smart and gentle the dog was with Molly, he suggested they rename him Sentry. When Eliza learned a sentry watches and protects, she agreed with the name change. Sean explained to Sentry that he was to protect Eliza at all times. The change in Sentry was remarkable. He now had the most important job in the world: protecting Eliza.
Nancy is building a new physical therapy center in Sean & Molly’s town.
When Nancy Ashcraft announced she’d be opening their finest physical therapy center in the bucolic New York countryside, close to Sean, Molly, and Eliza, all the patients demanded to transfer to Pea Pod.
“Hold on, it’s not open yet. We’ve only broken ground, laid the foundation, and built the exterior walls and roofing. There is still much to be done. If all goes well, we will open in three months. However, by then I expect every one of you to be well.”
After a long, happy, huggy party, Sean took his two girls to the car waiting in the underground parking lot.
The head of security, Jack Thorp escorted them down, then patted Eliza’s head, hugged Molly, and finally shook Sean’s hand. “It’s been a pleasure and an honor to know you. Just so you know, I’ll be relocating to Pea Pod in a few weeks to ensure the security features are properly installed.”
“Do you have a place to stay?” Sean asked.
He grimaced. “In Brewster. Turns out Pea Pod doesn’t have a hotel, motel, or even a Bed and Breakfast,” he complained.
Molly leaned across the car seat so she could see Jack. “We have enough rooms to be a Bed and Breakfast.”
Sean kissed his wife’s forehead. “I am not having my home taken up by petulant strangers demanding food.” He then turned to Jack. “However, you are welcomed to stay at our house for as long as you like.”
“Positive,” Sean added. Besides liking Jack, having the fellow around would add another layer of security for his girls.
“Then I gratefully accept.”
“Come as soon as you like.”
Jack’s brow furrowed, evidently reading more to his invitation than hopefully Molly would.

Saving Sentry is an amazing tale of family love and the impact of pets on our lives. Sentry became more than just a dog. He was a savior to the family when they needed protection and a guardian. I hugged my dogs a little harder when I completed this book, as I remembered how important they were to me.
Ms. O'Connor's stories always bring out the feels. I find myself running the gamet from shock and fear to laughter and tears. Each story digs deeper into the conceptions of life and what's really important. Saving Sentry leads readers through an amazing story of one dog and the family who he lives with, as well as how better each of us could be as human beings. I highly recommend this tale of bravery and sacrifice.
