A heartwarming dog story like no other: Tuesday, a lovable golden retriever, changes a former soldier's life forever. A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalván never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home from combat, however, his physical wounds and crippling post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. He wondered if he would ever recover. Then Luis met Tuesday, a sensitive golden retriever trained to assist the disabled. Tuesday had lived among prisoners and at a home for troubled boys, and he found it difficult to trust in or connect with a human being--until Luis. Until Tuesday is the story of how two wounded warriors, who had given so much and suffered the consequences, found salvation in each other. It is a story about war and peace, injury and recovery, psychological wounds and spiritual restoration. But more than that, it is a story about the love between a man and dog, and how, together, they healed each other's souls.

Del autor de su libro de memorias, Hasta Martes. Un guerrero herido y el Golden Retriever que lo salvó, nos llega una historia de amor eterno entre un soldado veterano de guerra y su inseparable amigo, Tuesday. En Español. Todas las mañanas, Tuesday ayuda a Luis a ponerse los zapatos, primero uno y luego el otro. Le recuerda tomarse las medicinas y le acerca el bastón. Pero he aquí lo curioso: Tuesday no es una persona, ¡es un perro de asistencia! Cuando Luis regresó a casa después de la guerra, todo cambió completamente y las cosas más corrientes lo asustaban. Por suerte, tenía a Tuesday, que se mantenía a su lado ayudándolo paso a paso. Dondequiera que Luis vaya, Tuesday está a su lado, listo para proteger a su amigo. Y no es solamente Tuesday quien cuida a Luis. Luis también cuida a Tuesday. Lo lleva a pasear al parque, le limpia las patas ¡y hasta le cepilla los dientes! Tuesday Me Arropa: Un vínculo de fidelidad entre un soldado y su perro de asistencia is the Spanish language edition of Tuesday Tucks Me In: The Loyal Bond Between a Soldier and His Service Dog, which was originally published in English. As narrated by Tuesday, Tuesday Tucks Me In is a day in the life of this service dog extraordinaire and tail-wagging ambassador for all things positive and uplifting in the world. The book takes us through a typical day of adventures, starting with Tuesday waking military veteran Luis Carlos Montalván in the morning and greeting him with dog breath in the face, and then ending with Tuesday cuddling up to Luis on their bed, the last moment they spend together before sleep. This picture book by the author of the memoir Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him is full of colorful photographs of Tuesday and Luis as they go through their day in New York City.

Language, music, structure--everything that I have. . . . This is the closest book I've written. Close to me, close to what I always wanted. . . . I went as far as I could."--Amos Oz
