"Angel in a Foxhole (Smoky The Therapy Dog)" tells the true story of "Smoky," WWII's best-known therapy dog and tiny 4lb. war hero, in an easy-to-read illustrated book. The 18 beautifully-illustrated drawings are captioned to explain her life story in the Southwest Pacific, as well as her post-war years in Cleveland, Ohio. Each drawing is well-suited for coloring by any age.
Smoky, found in a New Guinea foxhole, provided service through Corporal Bill Wynne, a Fifth U.S. Army Air Force photo-reconnaissance photographer, as a companion, trained therapy dog, and war hero. Her legacy as a therapy dog continued throughout Cleveland area hospitals, orphanages, and neighborhoods, and included a live, weekly morning television show where she entertained thousands of families and children with Bill as "Mr. Pokey."
Bill's love and fiancé, Margie, is warmly represented as "the other true story" of love and companionship.
