Chicago, IL, October 19, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- How far would you go to be reunited with your dog? Never Left Behind is the compelling and incredible true story account of Chicago Chef entrepreneur, Paul Barthel, who refused to be separated from his Labrador Retriever while going through a highly contentious divorce, making headlines.
"Another dog book? I shudder. Was pleasantly surprised with a great read, a "true" story about a man losing his dog." "I dreamt if only more of us shared a similar view of our four-legged friends." - Writers World.
A compelling memoir that submerges the reader inside the bowels of derelict kitchens, offering the vivid account of a man, a chef for over 30 years, who would leave his knives behind and summon the same determination he found on the line in those kitchens to be reunited with his best friend. Separated for three years, impassioned, he mounted a campaign fighting for his dog’s return, and grass roots stewardship efforts for laws protecting those creatures for an array of travails. In 2017, Illinois would become one of the first states to pass a bill recognizing pets in further seeking the best interest of the animal in domestic cases.
