Overview

It was love at first slobber when Carlo De Vito found himself flat on his back in the mud with a German shorthair pointer licking at his face. This stubby-tailed dog with endearing hazel eyes became his loyal companion–and one of his most influential teachers.

In 10 Secrets My Dog Taught Me: Life Lessons from a Man's Best Friend, the author recounts his adventures with Exley, his rescued dog. Together they learn life lessons on how to trust and care for each other, such as:

  • Dogs can't open doors and sometimes neither can people
  • Every once in a while it's good to play the clown
  • Simple acts of kindness are the best acts
  • A true friend is a friend for life

This delightful romp down memory lane celebrates the laughter, tears, joy, and chaos that go along with loving a pet. It is a charming read for anyone whose pet is also a best friend.

    There Are Angels Among Us.....and they have four feet, a cold nose and a wagging tail.

    Yet another sentimental book that extolls the love we share with the fur-laden members of our families.....but if you're like me, neither another one or twenty of these accounts is ever too much.

    DeVito's loving words and recollections of his friend Exley easily illicits the memories of those that have loved and lost their own furry children. Smiles, laughs and tears will sweep your face as you read his words and privately reminiscence about the dog that once shared your life. Though my life is currently blessed with two pups that I would not trade for anything, while reading this book my thoughts frequently traveled back to the time I shared with my pup who is now passed, and that lump in my throat that once choked my breath away came back for an unwelcomed visit. My last night with her, sitting on the floor with her for hours, rubbing her velvet ears, my eyes flooded with tear as I told her what a good dog she had been, interspersed with whispered "I love yous"....it came back and washed all over me again. In the last days, and especially those last hours, came the realization that not only was she a spirited, yet gentle soul, but she was also a noble being, a word I had never used before. I also realized how much I had learned from her. Yes, it's true, if the heart is receptive, we can learn from the beings that share our lives, even if they have four legs, a cold nose and a wagging tail.

    Read DeVito's tribute to his pup. Open your heart to your own. Instead of learning the lessons that are there as your pup leaves this physical world, observe and feel; then learn what you can in the living years.

    A book well worth the read. You will smile, laugh and cry at the canine antics, especially if you own a dog(s) or have done so in the past. Even if you don't own a dog or never have, you won't want to put this one down. My daughter read it in an evening. My husband, who doesn't have much time for reading, picked it up and enjoyed it thoroughly. He is now making time to read. We have had many canine friends in our family for many years (currently have 4) and we would not want to be without even one!!!

    I love my dog

    If you have a dog in your life now or have had a special one in the past you will be able to relate and appreciate this book. We are all here for a reason and this includes our doggie friends. Makes you stop and pause and agree that you share many experiences with others who love their dogs.

    10 Secrets My Dog Taught Me

    I loved every chapter of this book. The author has a delightful way of describing the every day joys a dog bring to one's life. Then he sums up everything at the end of each chapter. It was hard to put the book down at night. Luckily, it is short.
