From the Author
Sometimes I still get frustrated having a challenging dog, but those moments are becoming further and further apart as we both get grayer and wiser. On most days, Im eternally grateful for all Javas taught me. Shes helped me become a better woman, and I dont think she ever intended such grandiose results. It was by no mistake how our paths crossed on that wintry morning at the shelter. She is an angel in my life. Where our paths lead us next, only the universe knows, but I still have my sparkly, silver magic wand in the back pocket of my old, faded blue jeansand a poop bag.
