A DOG NAMED LEAF — One Person’s Opinion





“5.0 out of 5 stars. Transcends the Pet-Animal Story Genre by Leaps and Bounds. I finished this book in two sittings. It’s a page-turner. It’s about every day life in its most usual aspects — making a living and partnering with your spouse. But it’s also about how the past weaves seamlessly with the future to make you whole. It’s also about life and death — enduring a life-threatening illness and having to go way beyond preconceived limits of patience and stamina.

“However, the heart of this story is where the golden nugget lies. What you read bypasses the mind completely and rings a bell deep inside you. You ask yourself: Could this really happen? For some, the events described may strain credulity. However, author Allen Anderson brings you step-by-step into the shared world of man and dog in a way that directly addresses the most spiritual part of ourselves.

“And it transcends the pet/animal — human connection books that are plentiful on the market. What you see unfolding is a special inner and outer weaving of events by both human and animal that most of us aren’t aware of.

“I finished the book and wondered: What do animals really KNOW? Are they doing these kinds of things all the time? Who ARE they, really? And it makes you wonder if you can discover these invisible connections in your own life.

“This isn’t another story of a warm-hearted friendship between a man and his dog — though it is this too. This is about how a dog — with great love –actually entered the inner reality of his friend to help save him — and was able to succeed where human explanations and efforts failed. Quite a coup for a little four-legged creature who was once abandoned, and then found by this remarkable author.”
