    Full of Spirited and Unabashed Love!

    Have you ever wondered if you love your dog too much? Well, if you are a woman who loves spending every spare moment with your dog and appreciate and treasure the love and bond you have with your dog, this book is a must read. You will laugh and cry, just as I did, at each of these stories. Not only will you feel connected with these women, but you will fall in love with their dogs as well. You will walk away with a profound understanding that dogs truly are spiritual teachers and our best friends, and to deny that, would mean less of a life lived. These stories will fill your heart up with love and you will find yourself running to hug your canine friend.

    ~Barbara Techel, author of Frankie the Walk 'N Roll Dog book series
