Final Thoughts from a Dying Zen Dog - Richard I. Kaye This is an amazing read! I give it ***** WOW! I learned of this book through an ad on Facebook. It immediately caught my attention due to the beautiful cover photograph. When I clicked on the link I was taken to the book's page, which is incredibly informative. I bought the Kindle version and from the very first sentence I was totally 100% engrossed. I could barely stop reading it and finished it in two days (record time for me) as it's just [...]
I fell in love with Julia and her family. I loved her sense of humor and her zen dog perspective on things. Julia's book was about so much more than her illness.

You won't want to put her story down once you start, and it will leave you wondering what is going on in [...]
Facing as we all must what I fear is coming in my own life and looking for answers. This book was not it but it was an interesting take on the subject and might help in the long run.
