|Second Thoughts On: How to Be As Terrific As Your Dog Thinks You
||by Mort Crim
In this touching
selection of essays, journalist and speaker Mort Crim shares the lessons he learned from
his dogs and the comfort they brought into his life. Primarily, he shares stories of
Golum, a gentle Doberman, and Bogey, a cocky little Dachshund, and the positive lasting
effects they had on his life. From welcoming him home from work each day to helping him
through the death of his first wife, these two dogs shared canine love and wisdom in ways
that will touch-and sometimes break-your hearts.
The author shares more
that just his personal experience, however. He also examines the innate wisdom of dogs
when it comes to love, caring for others, and just being yourself.
|Crim explores the many life
lessons we can learn from our dogs if we just take the time to observe them and open our
lives to them. These lessons include the value of loyalty, the importance of play, the
ability to be happy with what you have, the capacity to take criticism without holding a
grudge and so many others. There are even thoughts on getting along with those selfish,
egotistical, aloof people in our lives-in other words, cats (and there are even a few
things we can learn from felines). For readers who have had wonderful dogs in their lives, this book
will revive joyful memories. For those considering inviting one into their home for the
first time, this book will show them how much a dog can add to their lives and how deeply
one can touch your soul. This is an unforgettable book for any animal lover.
