Dean Koontz's beloved golden retriever, Trixie (who died in 2007), follows her two books of wisdom (2004's Life Is Good! and 2005's Christmas Is Good!) with this volume about finding happiness by emulating dogs. Her advice includes living in the now, enjoying each moment to the fullest; putting aside worries about things one can't control; loving unconditionally and striving to make others happy; and accepting loss. Teryn McKewin reads Trixie's words in a voice brimming with good humor and pure delight in life-perfect for a golden retriever-and just a slight guttural quality in the back of her throat, probably meant to convey that this voice can growl and bark as well. Her playful and optimistic tone perfectly matches Trixie's personality and message, and makes this a great choice both for dog lovers and those who enjoy uplifting and reassuring books like the Chicken Soup series.
