A Dog Named Boo. How One Dog and One Woman Rescued Each Other-and the Lives They Transformed Along the Way has to be added to the top 5 books that I have read this year. Oh, who am I kidding, it has to be among one of the top 5 books I have read in the last 20 years.
This is a true story about a dog named Boo who changed his owner, Lisa J. Edwards, life in an unexpected and wonderful way. Boo, the runt of an abandoned litter, the dog who took a year to house train, the dog who was deemed the dunce of obedience class, the dog who bumped into things because of his poor eyesight, goes onto to be a true miracle worker changing the lives of many people who he comes in contact with.
There’s the six-year old boy who even after resisting many other forms of therapy for his muteness, tells his mother he loves her for the first time after a visit with Boo. Then there’s the ninety four year old nun dealing with Alzheimer’s, that forms an incredible bond with Boo.
But the most awesome story is how Boo transforms Lisa life and gives her and her husband the strength and confidence to finally take the emotional step of starting a family of their own, after struggling with their own past abuse.
A Dog Named Boo is a great read for all of us dog lovers who consider our dogs more than just a pet, they are our friends, our healers, our protectors and our therapists.
