Dave Burchett discusses the profound influence that animals can have on our existence.  The book is filled with excerpts from his personal journal, along with narratives of his life and living with dogs.  He’s not talking about what they do, so much as how they can change us. If only, we’re willing to slow down and take the lessons they’re unknowingly providing us in our everyday lives.

Even the titles of each chapter in the book give you a clue as to what you can learn: ‘Live in the Moment’, ‘Trust…the Currency of Love’, and ‘Life Interrupted’.  Dave Burchett talks all about his dogs and the ways in which they’ve shaped his life for the better. Having the family dogs, watching their changes and behaviors throughout life has given him new insight into his changes and behaviors, as well as what’s important.

For a bit of tenderness, coupled with life lessons, I encourage you to take a look at Dave Burchett’s Stay: Lessons My Dogs Taught Me About Life, Loss, and Grace. You can find it on Amazon.

    Ah, this interests me. My dog came after my kids, which is good because she didn’t get suddenly demoted by their births, but I try to make time to bond with her every day like I do with the kids! The cat is different – she claims that time, whether I like it or not! I wake up to her spooning me.

      Ahhhhaaaaa! The cat spoons you, I immediately feel this is both funny and annoying. Sometimes out children can be like that, but we love them anyway!

      We don’t have any animals yet, but would really like to have a dog in our family….

    Oh dear this is beautiful. I gotta grab a copy of this. Our dogs change and keep on changing our lives. That’s why you can imagine the horror I felt when I’ve heard of the Yulin Festival in China where they steal dogs from their families, kill them brutally and eat them. It’s just so barbaric.

      That’s really an awful thing. Animals are such wonderful creatures and we really can learn so much just from being around them 🙂

      Lol…This is a relaxing read. Sometimes for non-thinking I’ll read a “chick book” or something fiction, just because 🙂
