Things My Dog Has Taught Me
About Being A Better Human
By Jonathan Wittenberg
A dog's guide to life - how to be a kinder, compassionate, more mindful and wiser human.
If you love your dog, you'll love this book!
Jonathan Wittenberg shares with dog lovers everywhere his inability to resist the big, brown-eyed look which says, 'I'll melt your heart if you even think of going out without me', and the security he feels on a twenty-mile trek across the bleak Scottish Highlands with not a soul for a friend but his border collie.
We're all living increasingly frenetic lives, multitasking, balancing demanding jobs with worries about our families, with all the day-to-day worries fighting for space in our heads alongside regrets about the past and worries about the future... and we look for remedies in Mindfulness and Hygge and going on retreats ... trying to find something to still our soul.
In this book for dog lovers everywhere, Jonathan says his dogs have taught him, more than anything else, how to appreciate the wonderful world in which we live - and how to develop better relationships with his friends and families.
If you're one of the 8.5 million dog owners in the UK the answer to a better way of living may already be under your roof.
