Imagine battling cancer, and you are literally having a dog by your side going through the same thing. Newton, Renee’s beloved Boxer suffered lymphoma. As she had successful treatment in the end, Newton did not. She believes that pet’s are placed in our lives to fill a need, or show us something we didn’t know. Although the good bye is sad, she feels that pales in the comparison of what she got to experience with her dog(s). Finally, I asked her what she hopes this book brings to the reader. She hopes this book can help people. She believe that her book shows us dogs can be our guides during times of struggle and the enormous power of the human animal bond makes us better because of it.
