Editorial Reviews

Review

“When asked, 'Betty, you never remarried! How can you live alone?' my answer is simple: my golden retriever, Pontiac, is my saving grace.”
Betty White, actress and author

“These stories come from a diverse range of women about a diverse range of dogs and experiences, yet they share one common, uplifting theme: how women and dogs inspire and fulfill one another through love, dedication, and companionship. The Andersons excel at celebrating that special bond.”
Debrah R. Schnackenberg, vice president of emergency services, American Humane Association

“This book is for all dog lovers, and for those who wish to better understand the human-animal bond. It’s an inspiring read and will make you want to hug your best friend!”
Patrick McDonnell, creator of MUTTS

“These heartwarming stories of dogs and the women who love them solidify the fact that the animal-human bond is so unique and necessary for enhancing one’s life. You’ll find a bit of yourself in each tale.”
Vanessa Williams, actress and singer

“Whether you’re a 'normal' dog mom, a psycho dog mom…or somewhere in between, this book will open your heart, warm your soul, and make you proud to be a dog-loving woman.”
— from the foreword by Rory Freedman, coauthor of Skinny Bitch

“Perhaps because my older sister was a collie, I am never more myself than when in the presence of a dog. Kudos to Allen and Linda for sharing the myriad ways dogs bring joy, healing, and gratitude into our lives.”
Wendie Malick, actor and advocate

“Once again the Andersons have produced an inspiring book for women who love dogs, this time packed with stories and meditations that will make you smile, weep, and be moved by scenes ranging from Katrina rescues to a dog dazzling David Letterman on his Late Night show. If you have a special relationship with your dogs, this book is for you.”
Linda Tellington-Jones, PhD (Hon), founder of the Tellington TTouch Method® and author of Getting in TTouch with Your Dog

“Cuddle up with your dog and prepare to be profoundly moved by these heartwarming stories of the special bond that exists between women and their dogs. In reading each story, you will be humbled by the virtuous characteristics of our dog companions who clearly cherish sharing their lives with us. These powerful stories will resonate deeply with anyone who has ever loved a dog.”
June Cotner, author of Animal Blessings and Dog Blessings

“This charming collection of true stories will affirm people's feelings about the love and spiritual nature of our wonderful canine companions.”
Sonya Fitzpatrick, television and radio host and author of What the Animals Tell Me

Format: Paperback
Does your dog have multiple talents?

Has a special dog left a legacy for you and others to remember?

Has the loyalty and commitment of a dog inspired you?

Do you have favorite childhood memories of your dog?

Has your dog helped you to see someone's true character?

Has your dog taught you something about courage, judgement, changing course and setting off in new directions in life, loyalty, or just live and let live?

If so, then this is the book for you. It contains heart-warming true stories written by women about the friendship,the lessons learned, the bond of love existing between them and their dogs. Some tales are humorous, some will break your heart. There is "Barney," devoted, goofy, kindhearted; and "McDuff," connecting with the elderly and sick; and "Lady" abused and abandoned, later rescued and re-habilitated still capable of trust, who transforms her new human friend by demonstrating confidence and faith.

The Andersons have unleashed yet another fine book in their arsenal of true animal stories. You may find your own experiences reflected in "Dogs & The Women Who Love Them." I did.

Highly recommended reading. You don't have to like dogs to be astonished by the almost human qualities they reflect in these extraordinary uplifting canine tales.

Man's best friend seems to forget they are awesome for women too. "Dogs & The Women Who Love Them: Extraordinary True Stories of Loyalty, Healing, and Inspiration" is a collection of true stories of women and their dogs and the dedication that dogs. Dogs are amazing animals in what they do for people, from the more obvious hero dogs in the police tasks force or during disasters, to just being there for people. "Dogs & The Women Who Love Them" is an excellent read for any dog lover.

I am a life long animal lover and presently share my life with a husband, two miniature dachshunds and a cat. I enjoyed this book filled with true life stories of women and their dogs who not only helped each other but also gave of themselves to help others. A very good read that all animal lovers will relate to.

Fantastic stories, it's amazing how much love these women have for their dogs! My favorite is by Judy McFadden, about her scottie, McDuff. She has also written an excellent book about McDuff, called "Life With McDuff: Lessons Learned from a Therapy Dog", also here on Amazon.
