I’ll admit it – I love dogs. What amazes me about my dogs is that they are content, not just happy, but completely at ease. I’ve always wanted to be more like my dogs.
Trixie Koontz agrees and calls this state ‘bliss’. Trixie was the faithful companion of author Dean Koontz until her death in 2007. Now on the other side, Trixie has written this book to show humans how to achieve bliss.
According to Trixie, there are eight steps to reaching bliss:
In each section, Trixie explains how to focus on the important things in life and let go of the trivial.
Along the way, she also bestows important dog wisdom, such as:
Cookie nourishes tummy.
Optimism nourishes heart.”
I have to admit that I cried through the Foreword, written by Dean Koontz. Dog books always seem to bring tears with them. However, the rest of the book was incredibly uplifting and enjoyable.
Bliss to You will be released on September 16, 2008. All author proceeds will be donated to Canine Companions for Independence.
Maybe the path to bliss really is paved with dog wisdom. I hope so!
Bliss to you, Trixie.
