About Dog-ma: The Zen Of Slobber
Barbara grew up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with her parents, sister and always a dog, or two or three. When Barbara meets her future husband, Ray, it is love-and-dog at first sight. Over the course of thirty-two years, seventies relocations and nine dogs, their mutual love of dogs guides them on their unconventional path. The love that Barbara and Ray get in return is literally lifesaving, with one dog attacking a lethal intruder and another discovering Barbara's cancer. Her own survival story underscores the story of how her dogs become survivors themselves.
Each new dog adds a new dynamic to the family, sometimes upending it. From Turbo (whose Spock-like ears may have provided super powers), Barbara learns about the will to live; Lexington demonstrates incredible patience and an inexplicable love of golf; Madison teaches that laughter is truly the best medicine and that the whole "nine lives thing" is not reserved just for cats; Morgan should be sainted for tolerating Izzy, who is as cute as she is bad.
Dog-ma: The Zen Of Slobber will inspire you with the couple's unstinting love, devotion, and respect for dogs as family members. You'll be glad to include it in your treasured collection of great dog books.
