HURRICANE DOG
A TALE OF BETRAYAL, REDEMPTION & CHANGE
Sunny Weber
Synopsis
Pit bull mix Gator and puppy mill survivor Magnolia are abandoned
during a Louisiana hurricane. They suffer dehydration and starvation
after rescuers take their people to safety but leave the pets behind.

Saved from their flooded house, Gator and Magnolia recover but
remain homeless. Nobody wants a pit bull. Gator’s resentment festers
into intense hatred for Gavin, the boy who left them to die. He vows
to never trust again.

Overwhelmed by trauma, Gator and Magnolia cling to one another through change after change. Will they be separated? Will Gator forgive the Great Betrayal and love again?

My messages in Hurricane Dog:

Bad decisions can backfire; faulty judgment blinds one to truth; forgiveness, flexibility, tolerance opens one to love; education is the key to accomplishing changes in the world; all children have the potential to contribute; every life is valuable—human and animal.

Loyalty may result in self-sacrifice, but devotion, patience, and forgiveness can enrich everyone’s life; it is important to set goals at every stage of life; courage is key to navigate change; passion to change the world for the better is a noble mission.
