Available September 2020
96pg Pocket Paperback $9.95
HUMOR / Self-Help / Animals
It only took author Bob Luckin a few weeks to get acquainted with his dog Murphy, a ten-pound Maltese, Poodle-Terrier mix. They got to know each other so well that they began sharing their thoughts even though they didn’t speak the same language. Bob used words and Murphy barked. But after a while, Murphy’s sometimes annoying yet very effective non-verbal communication skills became a big part of their daily routine. Regardless of the odd sounds, gestures, and looks, they always found a way to understand each other.
Readers will enjoy the playful and sometimes comical comments of a dog who not only has a nose close to the ground, but also possesses a simple heart that clearly expresses the joys of life. The Diary of A Mindful Dog is a collection of what they have learned so far.
TOPICS INCLUDE: I STAND BESIDE YOU, THE DOG PARK, RUNNING AND BARKING, OBEDIENCE SCHOOL FOR HUMANS, THE WATER BOWL
“As a life-long dog person, I believe that dogs have come to earth as God’s sacred messengers, to instruct us on how to be better humans. The problem is few of us have been teachable. Read The Diary of a Mindful Dog with an open heart and allow yourself to be teachable; letting Murphy point the way to a more joyful life. Bob has done an exquisite job of learning, interpreting, and transcribing Murphy’s profound wisdom. Breathe, smile, and keep your head inside the window. Most of all, enjoy the journey with Murphy.”
— DR. DENNIS MERRITT JONES, Award winning author of The Art of Uncertainty, The Art of Being, The Art of Abundance, and How to Speak Science of Mind
“Full of fun metaphors, The Diary of a Mindful Dog offers a message of light but not a light message. Luckin’s wonderful poetic style will make you do a double take on your own animal companions and contemplate the meaning in the humdrum moments of life. There is always more beneath the surface, and Luckin and his dog Murphy invite us to explore it.”
