R. J. Hammond announces publication of his debut book

Bloomington, Indiana, UNITED STATES

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., Nov. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- R. J. Hammond’s new narrative titled “Risky Business, a.k.a., Dawg” (published by Archway Publishing) tells stories from the life of a special dog named Risky Business, sharing the ups and downs of his time with the Hammond family.


Although he and his wife, Tonya Hammond, were not looking for another dog when they encountered Risky Business, they knew he was the right dog for them. Smart, fast, funny, and loyal, Risky, a rescue dog, was a mix between a greyhound, deerhound and border collie. He acted as a companion for the whole family but spent a lot of time in particular with R. J. Hammond, who was diabetic and often dealt with dizziness while on their walks. Risky gave his family lots of reasons to laugh, from playing tricks and hiding treats to accidentally breaking R. J. Hammond’s leg. Ultimately, the book shares how Risky enriched the lives of his family and will live in their hearts forever.


“There are dog lovers everywhere, they do lots of good for lots of people,” Hammond says, adding that he hopes readers will have as good a time reading the book as he did writing it.
