Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

When a 70-something astrologer, well-known for his razor-sharp intuition and celestial insights, decides to get his first dog, he is in for the surprise of his life. You see, this Fox Terrier turns out to be a healer and a mind reader. And the dog talks to his owner.
Join the journey of Mr. Darby and his owner whom he calls a lot of descriptive names as they both make major adjustments to each other.
Like how to get Mr. Darby not to poo and pee in the house; fights about eating schedules — but most stand-offs are about control and manipulation.
Just when you think you've heard everything, this 3 year-old terrier will have you laughing at yourself, crying in some parts, and you might even get rip-roaring mad with his political bias.
You'll meet Scott and his dog, Riggs, who becomes Mr. Darby's best friend.
Mr. D. will tell you who he thinks is going to be the next President of the United States and why.
This Wire Fox Terrier has the solution for the economic problems around the world.
He'll tell you about his past lives and why he chose his present owner.
Although his Dada (yes, another name he calls his owner) has written many books and has a well-respected career as a counselor and media personality, Mr. Darby wants you to know that From the Dog's Mouth is his book and not Mister G.'s.
Let me be upfront from first growl: I refer to my lord and master as Daddy or Dada because although he has never had a pet or raised two-legged kids, he has done his best to whip me into shape, make me abide by his rules, and do what I am told. Sometimes I call him mon père or il mio papà, even simply Mister G. He and I have become co-healers in his practice as a therapist. He counsels thousands of men, women, and children as an intuitive, using Carl Jung and astrology to wring the truth out of them, and to tell them what the world looks like through his lens.
Thank God Dada learned how to read my mind, or as his momma, Maggie, would say, "listen to me," so he could channel my thoughts for this book.

About the Author

Mr. Darby was born three years ago in Bloomfield, Iowa, one in a litter of seven. He came to live with his owner when he was five months old. A naturally mellow Libra with a curious Sagittarius moon, this Wire Fox Terrier is a healer and an intuitive creature who works in his owner's practice. He lives in Sedona, Arizona — known as the Mecca of the Southwest — but he is available to pack his water and food bowls, bedding, and treats to follow any rich bitch who comes along — but only to the Italian Riviera.

I was blown away by this book. Mr Darby- the dog who wrote this book
as there is no mention of another author-has so much personality
and heart that it is frightening, heartbreaking and laugh out loud funny
all at the same time. You will not be disappointed.

This is a must read. Mr. Darby's "Daddy" is a psychic and a world class astrologer. He has a LOT of opinions. Naturally, a lot of these talents have been passed down. Never has there been such an amazing dog. You will be surprised and delighted on every page. fom Mandy's Mom

Just when I thought I had read everything along comes a dog to open up
the funniest and zaniest Pandora's box of witticisms and bald-faced truths
about us humans. His keeper gets it in the neck as much as Charlie Sheen,
Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney and anybody who is Christian or a Republican.
I recommend this to anyone with an open-mind and who wants to see life through
the sensibility of a dog.

I wanted terribly to love or at least like this book. I like witty cutting literature and love wire fox terriers. What a combination thought I. Perfect for a summer read by the pool. That will not be happening. It does not hold my interest and the writing is not tight enough to have been written by Mr. Darby. I highly suspect he had a ghost writer who did him no good turn. It seems to me that this book was written for family and friends and it should have been given as gifts to those persons. Sadly, Mr. Darby, I must request that if another book is written, you put paw to keyboard and get it done yourself in your own voice and with your own perceptions and not those of your Dada, who is most likely an excellent astrologer. It is only because of Mr. Darby's cute photo on the cover that I am upping this review from one star to two.

A story told through the lens of a dog, Mr. Darby speaks his truth and reveals wisdom on every page. It's not a story just about a dog and owner, it's a reflection about how all of us are engaging with one another in relationships, most unknowingly. It's honesty straight "from the dogs mouth" is humoursly told -- a refreshing read and brillant way to drop our filters to see, listen and learn from the metaphor of stories. Before you realize it, one has stumbled upon not only an entertaining account but a gift of love, compassion and authenticity between two creatures. The bonus is your awareness meter will be turned up with questions organically offered without even trying.

Remember, we receive when we share. I suggest you buy more than one and let the boomerangs of kindness begin. Pronto!

From The Dog's Mouth is the best read that I have experienced in a very long time.....maybe ever. Mr Darby's, a Wire Fox Terrier, keen insights to everything under the sun, especially his astrologer master produed hysterical laughter, and brilliant life lessons to this two-legged 64 year old. It never occurred to me the book was not written by Mr. Darby, and is not a four-legged healer. I look at my own dog differently since I read this amazing book.

This isn't your typical dog book! From the Dogs Mouth makes you ponder why the 2 legged race has gotten so confused.
Mr. Darby is truly a healer! He makes you laugh until you cry. A definite must read.

By John F. Lehman on January 31, 2014
Format: Paperback
The first three chapters of this book (the conceit is that it is written by a dog and channeled through its owner) is perhaps the best thing I have ever read about dogs—and I have several that I love. The words are so true. I am also a fan of Carl Jung who the dog’s master is using in his work. But after those chapters, it goes downhill fast. Until it swings around a curve and turns into sort of a soap opera. In the last chapter, the genuinely moving loss of a friend, Riggs, is overshadowed by some out of date political crap.

It’s as if someone buying what is said at the beginning would have to think about Fox-type celebrities, religion, immigration, politics and other subjects this way. It makes me want to go back and see if I really do relate to the narrator like I thought.

But read this quote. It might be the most important thing you’ll ever learn about dogs and people:

Dog owners want raising their pet to be simple and easy. But just as there are millions of types of two-legs, we canines have a wide range of “wills” and “won’ts” that are never addressed. For instance, no matter what the breed, dogs do not like to be controlled by their owners. We are looking for someone to accept us for who we are, not for who and what they need us to be.

The rest is “poo” in the dog park.
