Description - The Divinity of Dogs by Jennifer Skiff
The Divinity of Dogs captures moments in which you learn something profound about life from an experience with a dog. These inspiring and heartwarming true stories show where love, tolerance, comfort, compassion, loyalty, joyfulness and even death have provided experiences that have led to spiritual enlightenment.
You'll meet Little Bit, the chihuahua who detected a small lump in her owner's breast, a growth even doctors couldn't find. There's Emma, the devoted rottweiler who ferociously grabbed her owner's arm at the moment he was trying commit suicide, saving his life. You'll be inspired by Luna, the retriever who dragged her owner to safety after she collapsed late at night in a field. And you'll fall in love with the many dogs who simply provide steady comfort when needed - dogs like Bo, the Boxer who soothed his mistress after the loss of her son. The author also weaves her own experiences with dogs throughout the book, showing how they comforted her through mistreatment as a child, a divorce and a cancer diagnosis.
The stories that make up The Divinity of Dogs provide hope, help and healing for readers in the complex and difficult times in which we live. Whether you believe dogs are divine or are actually a gift from the divine, The Divinity of Dogs gives you permission to accept what you know: dogs are healers, educators, protectors and tangible examples of pure love.
