    getting unconditional love is addictive

    Read the book. Reveals a lot about the author and provides an excellent vehicle to get several messages across without the often rejected, listen to me, I'm a professional and I know what's good for you, approach to counseling. The lessons from Bud strike a chord with all of us who are/were dog owners. Getting unconditional love is both addictive and gratifying. There is an old quote that states, some say that heaven is a place that, when you get there, every dog you've ever owned comes running up to greet you. If this is true, maybe you and I should repent right now lest we be forced to forgo this eventuality.

    .... forget the psychiatrist...get a dog!

    Nothing very surprising found within this book EXCEPT...that I forgot everything of value that was in it. This is a super book to use as a reminder how to not just survive life...but live it...live it to the fullest...thanks BUD!
