    Miracle Dog

    It was by chance that I came across this book. I have to honestly say this is the most touching story I have ever read and by far my favorite book. Mike had two heart attacks and a new disability that kept him from living the life he used to. He suffered from depression and lost his will to live. His psychiatrist suggested he get a dog to use as a therapy dog. He rescued a golden retriever named Dakota. Dakota was trained to be a therapy dog and soon became Mike's service dog as well. Dakota had an ability to detect when Mike was going to have an angina attack and alerted him to take medication before it turned into a full-blown heart attack. He started alerting others as well. Dakota became well known for his ability to sense this and the positive effect he had on everyone around him. Mike continued to take Dakota to places for Animal Assisted Therapy. Mike and Dakota worked with Delta Society to educate the public about the rights of people with disabilities to have service dogs. They quickly became ambassadors for service and therapy dog teams showing the world the power behind the human-animal bond. Through the life and eventually the death of Dakota, Mike learned the bigger purpose of his life and realized the significance of having a guardian angel by his side.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who believes in the healing power of animals. I recommend this book to anyone who believes that some angels walk on four paws.

    This is a great book that details the emotional interrelationship between a person and his special canine. The Angel by My Side is a great read for anyone who has ever had their life touched by a special dog.

    The Angel By My Side

    This was a wonderful book. I truly believe a dog can change your life and this story proves it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Assistance dogs or if they just want to read a very heartwarming story. I also purchased another copy of this book for a gift.

    A Unforgetable Story

    This book is on my top ten favorite book list. This book told the story of a man and his golden, and the bond that holds them together. The reality of this book tugs at my heart and when I read it, the hopes and the pains make tears in my eyes. This story helps you to understand the real bond between a man and a dog, and the love that goes with it.

    Okay

    The Angel by My Side starts out well although some of the writing is amateurish and in need of editing. I like dog stories and, while I believe there are some truly exceptional and talented dogs, the bit with the pet psychic was a little spooky pooky and the author kind of lost me there. No, I don't believe angels inhabit canine bodies. Nope.
