The Endless Path tells the story of the extraordinary journey of two soulmates who overcame almost insurmountable odds to find each other and to stay together as long as they possibly could.

It is the story of Gunny and Laurie. Gunny was a chocolate Labrador retriever and Laurie is a person, but those are just the forms that our souls took this time around. You've never read a memoir quite like this one because Gunny was not only a dog, but also the co-author. He was able to write his part with the help of his gifted animal communicator, Alexandra, who could hear him quite clearly. The book traces their life together from when Gunny and Laurie met, until his death at almost fifteen years old, and beyond.

The Endless Path follows Gunny's struggle to survive rare and near fatal illnesses with fierce determination, as well as their amazing adventures living all around the world. It is knowing the edge of death that deepened Gunny's commitment to life --and his reflections on life, love, relationships, and what it all means are astonishing. Gunny tells us the story of his life, and incredibly, about the soul pact that he and Laurie made long ago.

While there is adventure, laughter, and tears along The Endless Path, in the end, it is about love and all the amazing things that it can accomplish.

About the Author

Laurie fell in love with animals at the age of seven, when she brought home a puppy from the house next door and persuaded her parents to adopt her. She did not have another dog for 25 years until her husband gave her a handsome chocolate Labrador retriever named Ganimedes, Gunny for short, as her wedding present. After meeting Gunny -- her soul mate and her great love --- nothing was every the same again. Life with Gunny turned her idea of what animals were and were not capable of right on its head. He taught her about the astounding things that love can accomplish, and ultimately, led her back to who she was truly meant to be. After graduating from Georgetown Uniersity Law School and earning her Masters in Foreign Service, Laurie practiced law internationally for almost twenty years while living all over the world. In 2008, with Gunny's encouragement, she left the corporate legal world and opened a dog water therapy pool to help injured and old dogs improve their quality of life and renew their spirit. Because of Gunny's Rainbow, Laurie has helped hundreds of dogs over the years, and continues to operate the pool as well as write.
