For anyone who ever loved a pet or needed a laugh...
In this humorous and uplifting read, Belinda recounts how her scruffy Aussie terrier Killarney has helped her through the toughest of days – and taught her to make the most of life.
Killarney is not afraid of anything sub-tropical Australia can throw at her: venomous creatures, cancer, very large dogs. She becomes Belinda’s furry comforter and cheer squad through job loss, grief, and failed romance.
You will be inspired by Killarney’s motto: grab life by the throat and shake every last drop of joy out of it. Wrestle it, if you have to.
