I apologize for leaving this comment here, but I read your book this weekend: 10 secrets my dog taught me. I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful gift of your book. My GSP is 13 and I am struggling with her recent cancer diagnosis. Your book reminded me of all the gifts she has given me, as well as the addition of Flyer...honestly, the closest to Exley, even down to the stuffed teddy greeting! What a find at the bookstore!

Thank you!
