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.
