News10 Anchorman, John Gray, is an Emmy Award winning journalist and writer. When John’s puppy, Samuel, died unexpectedly at just six months old it brought a profound sadness to their home and a sense that this was just not fair. For the first time John understood how a child must feel when they lose a pet of any age, asking themselves, “Why?”
Hoping to turn his pain into something positive, John put pen to paper and wrote a story to help any child who has lost a pet. His new book, "God Needed a Puppy" guides children through the grieving process by using friendly animals from the forest to explain the reasons why a beloved pet sometimes has to leave us.
