Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them. It is believed that a human doesn’t choose a dog, but a dog chooses it’s human. Dogs have always had a sacred place in Indian mythology where a lot of deities have dogs as their companions. There is also a brief but remarkable mention of Shvan ie Dog (in Sankrit) in Ramayana and Mahabharata.
Dog is the only thing on Earth that loves you more than he loves himself. A dog will teach you unconditional love and compassion. They have the ability to sense emotional turmoil, danger, pain of their human and likewise they adapt.
This book gives you a simple way to attain peace through dogs. It may seem frivolous but is very effective and a life changing experience.
The moral of the book is to spread love, peace, harmony, co-existence and compassion with the help of the man’s bestfriend, Dogs. The author tells us bluntly that you are either an animal lover or a non animal lover, both having a few distinct degrees with minor but significant differences which defines your personality. She proves this theory with a few examples, which if given a thought, seem true.
There are some anecdotes, real life spiritual experiences, autobiographies, interviews in which they have shared their paranormal experiences which are hair-raising and heartwarming. These canine companions not only helped them emotionally but also taught them love, mental peace and balance.
I love dogs, though I do not have one ( but hopefully someday if i am blessed), but those who have these fur buddies will definitely vouch for it. I loved reading about their bond with these special family members and their intimate experiences. I highly recommend this beautiful book.
“The difference between a Human and a Dog is that Dog cannot fake love.”
