I saw it in the case of my father in law who passed away in May, He was in Hospice and had not responded to anyone or opened his eyes in days but when I brought Lucky to see him, whom he loved dearly, he started to move his hands and pet him. He also spoke a little and opened his eyes. I believe it was because of Lucky.

He did this numerous times over the past several days afterwards. He was 89 and did soon pass but having him pet Lucky hopefully brought some joy into his last days.

I know it did to his family. I have 2 dogs and one on the way next week and I am ill. When I am down, these dogs pick me and sense it when I feel this way. It's amazing the powers that lie beneath these furry creatures!!

Dogs are one of the greatest gifts we have, and this little book relates some of the fantastic healing properties of dogs. Some years ago I fell and broke my hip. My male lab lay down beside me, and gently pushed against my thigh while his siste lay in the doorway, ready to defend. They were not trained for this.

Very touching and informative from a person with lots of years of experience in dog training. I'm very happy I bought this! Good book I love reading so this is a good book. I'm so grateful for this book. The stories are so touching I was also very appreciative of the resource section each chapter ended with, as I've been wanting to do more with my dog -possibly visiting patients and children - and I now know exactly what steps to take.
