Alright, first let me say: I am a dog person. I was not turning down this book from Bookish First just for that reason. What a fabulous idea, to write about the key moments in your life by the canine relationships the author enjoyed at those times and how her pets helped her define things.

Pets can help us look inside ourselves by talking out loud to them if we have trouble with introspection. They can also help us by loving us, even if we feel like no one else does. Especially for those with low self-esteem, dogs with their ability to make us smile through our tears can help boost our self-worth.

I recommend Jennifer Finney Boylan's book to anyone who's ever loved a pet and grown through their love.
