Simply go to my web site <> and click where instructed under Special Holiday Gift. MERRY CHRISTMAS and doggie kisses to all!

Excerpt from 
I Want to Have the Heart of a Dog:

Fur against my face and the soft smell of a dog curled protectively around me existed before my first memories of this life. 

My mom used to tell stories of me as a toddler, sleeping with my head pillowed on our Collie’s belly. And of my brave furry protector forcing an uncle back into his car because I was outside without a parent. Never mind we lived out in the country where only relatives or nearby neighbors came to visit. 

Tippy took his duties seriously, and executed them well. For ten years, he was a companion, a pillow, and a protector... 

Though I didn’t realize it at the time, Tippy began my life-long love of dogs, and set the standard for all dogs who would follow in my life.

And those were not the last years Tippy and I would share...

From Tippy:
…we will always be with you--your furry angels who you can love and trust unconditionally and feel safe with. And though you won’t put this together until well into this lifetime, Collies will carry a special message for you, as I do. You will feel drawn to them, and they will appear at critical times to guide and support you. But don’t overlook the other furries who appear in your life, for they also bring messages--to hope, to play, to love, to look for the joy in this lifetime. For it is there, sometimes buried and forgotten in the angst of your self-punishment, but it is there. 

Good-bye for now, my beloved. I will always be available to you and now entrust you to another set of paws to share your journey.
