Published on August 1, 2017

Meet handsome Dino Duperier. We adopted him almost two years ago when he was eight years old. We had been without a dog for several years after Gunny and Bacchus died. By chance, I saw his picture on a rescue web site, went to meet him at his foster Mom’s house, and he stole my heart. We weren’t really looking for a dog – our hearts were still pretty broken – but he seemed perfect for us and he was a dog who needed to be loved and valued, and the truth is we needed to be loved and valued, too.

No one knows your dog like you do. No one. You spend countless hours a day with him or her, watching how he moves, his funny little habits, and countless other details. So therefore YOU are best placed to know if there is something wrong with your dog.

Why Gunny and I "dared greatly" →

Perfect and bulletproof are seductive, but they don’t exist in the human experience. We must walk into the arena, whatever it may be – a new relationship, an important meeting, our creative process, or a difficult family conversation – with courage and the willingness to engage. Rather than sitting on the sidelines and hurling judgment and advice, we must dare to show up and let ourselves be seen. This is vulnerability. This is daring greatly.

The Letter to Gunny →

The book opens with a letter that I wrote to Ganimedes shortly after he died. The last few weeks of his life, I found myself writing him letters every few days – even though I was living in the same house with him and was with him 24 hours a day.
