Editorial Reviews


"MAGGIE raises questions about life and beliefs and demonstrates the canine ability to sense human thoughts and feelings, weaving the two species together in a tight bond. Kairns has not only written a pet memoir, but one that aims to bring the reader to a higher level of thinking about our four-legged friends." Rocky Mountain Pet Tails Magazine, October, 2008 
"MAGGIE a must read for every pet lover ..."The Lakeland Times, September 26, 2008 
"'...charming and heartfelt's research and knowledge should help readers act better as their dogs medical advocates. Maggie will appeal ... to those who love and are loved by any dog ..." US Review of Books
"Thank you for writing this wonderful book. As one of three mental health professionals who have facilitated our Pet Loss Support Group for the past 20+ years ..agree with everything you've included in your book and would wish everyone could read it." Ann Johnson, Human Animal Bond Trust, Inc., Denver area Pet Loss Support Group
"Dawn captures the essence and spirituality of dogs ... eloquently gives us her heart by sharing Maggie with all of us ... I am a better person for reading their story." Barbara Techel, Author of Frankie, the Walk 'N Roll Dog
"There are many books about special and beloved dogs, but this book goes much deeper than most... The reader is compelled to keep going, to sneak the book to work and get around any obstacle that would prevent one from reading straight through to the end... Dawn's awakening with regard to Maggie's health, the quality of her pet food, and the meanings of Dawn's own dreams is a remarkable part of this story." Jenny Pavlovic, Author of 8 State Hurricane Kate

From the Back Cover

"Animals play a greater and greater role in our emotional lives, and no one understands this trend better than Dawn Kairns. More than just companion animals, our four-legged loved ones can lead us to a deeper understanding of our place in the world. This story of Dawn and her dog, Maggie, shows us how easily love can cross species' boundaries." 
- Ethan Watters, author of Urban Tribes
"There is no finer definition of the human animal bond than will be found in the pages of this book. Dawn's heartwarming story will bring tears to many, and true understanding to all of the importance of animals in our lives. It should be a 'must read' for all veterinarians and students to help us understand and appreciate the importance of our profession, both to our patients, and their families." 
Richard Katz, DVM
"Sincere, sweet and deeply moving. Dogs as special as Maggie come along once in a lifetime. They are gifts. As Maggie did, these angels patiently try to teach us to listen, to ourselves and to the silent language of dogs. Listen." 
- Gigi Moss, Association of Pet Dog Trainers
