About the Author
Jacob Schwartz and Alexis Sedacca met when they began kindergarten in 2004. They immediately formed a special friendship. Now, twelve years later, that initial bond continues to remain strong. Together, they have experienced many of life's important moments, always focusing on supporting each other. One of their common interests, the love of dogs, has provided them an opportunity to spend Sundays together, volunteering at the Westside German Shepherd Rescue in Los Angeles. Searching for Thurston gave them a deep understanding of how positive thinking, perseverance, and humanity work together. Shortly, after Thurston was found in May of 2015, the authors felt compelled to share their story.
