A Brilliant & Tender True Story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Big Little Life (Paperback)
"A Big Little Life" is the true account of Trixie, an ex Canine Companion for Independence, after she was retired as a working dog.
This beautiful Golder Retriever then came into the lives of the author, Dean Koonitz, and is wife Gerda. From day one, Trixie showed herself to be a truly lovely dog and it was not long before she was deeply embedded in the hearts of Dean, Gerda, their staff and friends.
At the start of each chapter, there is a photo of Trixie, each one being different so that the reader can share in the joyful expressions of this remarkable canine companion. Throughout the book you can feel the joy and happiness that this dog brings to everyone she meets. You will be there with Dean and Gerda when Trixie is at the Vet.
This is a beautiful and tender love story - the love of a dog for it's humans and the love and immense appreciation of the humans for the dog. It is a great book and one to be enjoyed by dog owners and anyone who is in awe of how clever these amazing can be. If anyone out there has any doubts as to their intelligence, read this book and it will be proven to you.
