Synopsis: Drawn from Wendy Kelly’s real-life journey with a rescue dog and her experiences as an animal behaviorist, this handbook identifies basic pet attitudes that can help their human companions lead fulfilled and meaningful lives. By illustrating how to be here now and be full of intention to travel light and be one in love, this guide reveals how humans have more to learn from their pets than humans can ever teach them. Pets are some of the best teachers of how to be in the moment and open to endless possibilities, to be true to thoughts and feelings, to travel without excess baggage, and to embrace the universal love that connects everyone in the “pack.” In addition, Wendy shares her very personal experience with her dog Buji, a bull terrier she rescued from euthanization who ultimately twice saved Wendy from what would have been a deadly cancer.
Review: Along with imparting important life lessons, Buji and Me tugs on your heartstrings. Ms. Kelly has a very candid yet caring way of writing which makes you want to realize the potential in yourself and your pet(s). Stressing a positive outlook on life, Ms. Kelly interweaves life and behavioral lessons that can be applied to humans and animals alike. However, you don't need to have a pet to be positively impacted by the stories and lessons. Buji and Me is an inspiring book which will give you a whole new way of looking at the world and your place in it. Sprinkled throughout with encouraging quotes and great illustrations, I feel this book will help many people in many ways. You will feel good while reading this book and want to use the lessons within to keep that feeling alive at all times.
