"This is the Christian edition of Connie's original version [where] Scripture was removed on the advice of marketing. However, Connie's intense desire to share her faith-filled belief in Hogan's success compelled her to restore the original manuscript." -- from Author's Note.
Hogan's Hope is the heartwarming story of a deaf dog who escaped death during the time when the prevalent belief was that deaf dogs needed to be destroyed. He learned American Sign Language, engaged in normal puppy activities, and provided the hope of life, not death, for deaf dogs worldwide.
