A year has passed since puppy raiser Diego handed Aloha's harness over to her blind partner Kimberly Louise.  Now Diego is traveling to Georgia to visit his beloved friend again!This heartwarming story follows the exciting cross-country adventures and moving scenarios of a diverse group of family and friends.  Although Aloha is a central figure in this intriguing story, she shares the stage with human actors who make this more than a tale about a blind woman and her guide dog.  Learning from the devoted Aloha's example, they discover they are capable of weathering any storm and triumphing over every setback. 


"From the opening chapter where Aloha rescues Kimberly Louise from the wheels of an unseen car, through the consequences of a horrific storm and finally to the riveting last chapter, we identified with the unfolding relationship forged between a blind person and canine partner.  We thrilled as teenager Diego evolved from Aloha's puppy raiser to Miss Kimberly Louise's friend and eventually to hero.  With more than 65 years of guide dog partnership between us, we reveled in Kimberly Louise's joy in meeting Aloha, and their evolution as a team.  Pamela Bauer Mueller has provided the reader with an exciting and exuberant story about a blind woman, her guide dog and the youngster who raised her for a career of love and service." — Ed and Toni Eames, authors of Partners in Independence: A Success Story of Dogs and the Disabled
