“This is a wonderful book that shares the personal life struggles and loving support between a dog and his family. Written with honesty, humor, introspection and warmth. I have purchased several to share with dear friends as it has touched me deeply!”
–Betty Redfield (Syracuse, NY, US), Amazon.com review
“Part Marley and Me and part Jon Katz… the story is endearing, and the many photographs of Leaf running, swimming, and chasing a tennis ball in south Minneapolis are adorable.”
–Laurie Hertzel, “The Browser” Minneapolis Star Tribune
“…The authorial voice is distinctly Allen’s. In 2006, Allen learns that he has an unruptured brain aneurysm, seven months after the family adopts a black cocker spaniel, Leaf, from a shelter. Throughout, he clearly conveys the affection that he and his dog have for each other and how that affection proved crucial to his recovery from brain surgery.”

–Amy Shojai, About.com Guide, December 27, 2012
“A remarkable story that will reaffirm your faith in the unique and mutually healing bond that can sometimes form between humans and animals.”
–Gwen Cooper, New York Times bestselling author of Homer’s Odyssey
