About the Book

Nominated for the Dog Writer's Association of America 2008 Merial Human-Animal Bond Award The connection between Maggie and Dawn was powerful. Maggie's genuine and beautiful essence opened Dawn's heart and she became more real. Through their relationship Dawn learned that dogs are intelligent and emotional beings that can sense human thoughts. From housebreaking to adolescent escapades and on through old age, Maggie's radiant spirit became interwoven with the fabric of Dawn's life. The depth of their bond opens a surprising door to intuition and dream communication about Maggie's fate. Through their journey, Dawn experiences the joys of sharing life with a dog that so touched people as well as the profound grief that comes with the loss of her beloved Maggie.
