Part memoir, part metaphor, And Thereby Hangs a Tale is a brilliant and playful peek into the "secret life of dogs" and their unquestioning devotion, embrace of the now, and unrestrained, unrehearsed love. It's a "dalmatian devotional".... And an intensely human one too.
My copy is underlined, and "dog-eared". Savored. Actually the book is one to be read, and re-read, passed to friends, and kept by the bedside for moments when a choice morsel is so needed to make sense of life. Warm, reminiscent, alive,Tale takes the reader on an incredible journey home.
Teems the explores the subjects of devotion, love, intimacy in fresh and stimulating ways. He challenges the reader to grow and examine recesses of the heart and spirit that our rush-a-day world often bypasses. This is a book to be savored, given as a gift to special friends...for it is much more than simply a "dog book.
David Teems, the writer, is a treasure, there are few on this planet who have his way with words, who can turn a phrase with such lyricism, elegance and yes, heart. Inspiring...yes, I can never go away from having read David's prose without having been radically impacted, my vision and spirit enlarged.
The book is a book to treasure, whether you are a dog-lover or a God-lover or both.

This is a good read for dog lovers and it's obvious the author really enjoyed writing this book as he relived his days with his dogs. We truely can learn how to live the devoted life from our dogs as David Teems has. Inspiring!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
