AMAZON Reviews of A DOG NAMED LEAF by Allen Anderson

A Dog Named Leaf

A Dog Named Leaf

“You will think I would be biased as I am one of the animal communicators mentioned in the book A Dog Named Leaf. I can tell you that I expected a nice story, but I couldn’t put the book down. The trials so honestly written by the author will touch your heart. The story of Leaf’s journey and healing will amaze you, not too heavy, there’s humor, but it’s a journey which will inspire you and touch your heart at the courage, love and experiences of the author and his wonderful dog. It’s very special.” –Marcia, reviewer

“It takes courage to share your story. I also think to share the deep love of a pet takes courage. The fact that Allen, being a man, shares his deepest fears and also his amazing love for Leaf makes this book truly inspiring. We’ve heard many stories of the connection between women and dogs, or children and pets, but to hear Allen share his deepest thoughts and biggest fears, as well as, his devotion and love for Leaf touched me deeply. As I read the last page of his book I wanted to weep. I wanted to weep for those that never experience a connection like Allen and Leaf have. I wanted to weep in happiness for Allen and his recovery. I wanted to weep for the courage it took for Allen to share this remarkable story that some may find hard to believe at times. But I know it is real as I’ve experienced some profound moments with my own dogs, just like Allen has with Leaf. If you’ve ever doubted animals have souls, this book will open your heart and mind to truly believing we are all connected. You will never doubt again. Your life will be enriched far beyond what you could have ever imagined and you will have author Allen Anderson to thank for it.” –Barbara Techel “Author of Frankie the Walk ‘N… (Elkhart Lake, WI), , reviewer

” A Dog Named Leaf truly touched my heart. Allen helps us to see that there is so much more going on in our relationships with our animal companions. I hope it will help others to be more aware of this incredible love bond between Souls and to also help us respect one another more. THANK YOU Allen! I love this book! Great for all who have dogs or anyone who has furry or feathered friends!” –Misha’s Mom, Amazon Review of A Dog Named Leaf

“I thoroughly enjoyed A Dog Named Leaf, couldn’t put it down, have given it as a gift, and highly recommend it! I was touched by how Allen and Leaf were brought together in order to help each other heal from both physical and emotional wounds. Throughout the book, Allen recognizes and shares the spiritual growth opportunities he receives through his deep love bond with Leaf. As a love relationship coach, I also enjoyed references to Allen’s relationship with his wife, Linda. Allen shows how people respond differently to crises and the value in understanding the other’s perspective.” –Lyndra H. Antonson, reviewer

“I loved this book. It highlights something I’ve always believed, that there is far more going on in the mind of a dog than most people think. It’s a terrific book for anyone that’s ever had a rescue dog and knows the problems and pitfalls along that path, as well as the reward that awaits when you give your heart completely to a new dog. Allen Anderson’s journey with Leaf is a wonderful story and I’m very happy that he chose to share it with us.” –Christopher Wilson (Salt Lake City, Utah United States)

“5 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 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.” –Barbara Buckner, reviewer

“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), reviewer

“It was a wonderful book. I recommend it to any animal lover, be they cat or dog. Leaf and his dad are special people.” –Nancy C. Miller (Prescott, AZ, USA), reviewer

“A Dog Named Leaf” touched my heart deeply. It showed how the qualities of love patience persistence surrender and trust—-were developed in 2 Souls who were in each others life. It showed how they developed a relationship of great blessings to each other. The animal/ human bond was so beautifully demonstrated—I fell in love with Leaf. I admired the journey of each–I highly recommend this book.” –Robin Houlgate, reviewer

“What an amazing personal story! I couldn’t put the book down. This heart opening adventure will help so many people. I learned more about how to reach the inner depths of listening to my own dog, soul to soul. I appreciated understanding more about police work from the inside out, and how to prepare for going to the hospital to deal with critical illness. I loved the part about dog groomers at the end, and the very important gift of service that they provide. My dog groomer cried when I gave her a copy of the book. I think she felt the love coming from the book! I was so inspired after reading Allen Anderson’s book, that I immediately ordered 5 more copies to give away to friends and family. A Dog Named Leaf is a must read!!!” –Maureen Dixon, reviewer

“Praise to the authors for so honestly sharing their personal journey with Leaf. I laughed. I cried. I pondered the deeper meaning behind the relationships with my own canine companions. More than a who rescued who story….so much more.” –Sandy , reviewer
