Let’s emBARK upon a whole new journey with eight real adopted dogs, their friends, and family! As these incredible canines discover the blessings of following God’s plan, we laugh and learn more about life, ourselves and our Creator. Dog Tales is based on the Beatitudes, part of the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:3-12). For each Beatitude, a special adopted pet represents and exhibits the important character Jesus calls for His followers. Dog Tales gets pup close and personal with these amazing dogs—adopted by the author and her family—and also features other adoptive pet friends. As you visit each tale, may you be motivated through stories of God’s love, humility, mercy, hope, courage, compassion, peace and joy. Don’t miss any of the books in this new Children’s Compassion Series including Cat Tales and others to come!


“Teresa is an impassioned advocate for adoption.” ~ Cheri McCoy, Retired Director of Support Group Ministries, Pleasant Valley Baptist Church and Author, Pieces of My Heart

TERESA HERBIC is the Director of Family Groups at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church and Families for Adoption, an international and domestic adoption, foster and orphan care network. Her passion is aiding and rescuing orphan children and animals. She serves on hospital and prayer ministries and is an Avon leader and recruiter. The impact of prayer resulted in Herbic’s decision to adopt rather than have children biologically. God has blessed her and her husband Galen with two adopted children, Meyana and Braxten, two adopted cats, Dakota and Lolli and an adopted dog named Mitzi. Over the course of her lifetime, Herbic and her family have adopted the eight dogs featured in this book.
