This collection is a loving tribute to the kindest, most caring and devoted animals known to humankind. Selections describe the exuberance of puppies, the unconditional love of a canine best friend, the joy of a shared day at the beach, the bittersweet glance of an aging pet, and the simple pleasure of coming home each day to a wagging tail and unbridled affection. More than anything, Dog Blessings honors the profound ways that our four-legged friends touch our lives. The perfect book for any dog lover, it can be revisited and shared for years to come.

Praise For…

My dogs are my life. Let this book be a great part of yours.”
Doris Day, actress and founder of the Doris Day Animal Foundation

Dog Blessings is a moving and tender book of poems, prose, and prayers that gracefully honors our dog companions. Page after page, I found my heart opening even more to the deep love I share with dogs and how much they mean to me. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll call your dog over for a full-body hug. I heartily recommend this book to dog lovers everywhere!”
Marty Becker, DVM, resident veterinarian on ABC’s Good Morning America

The poems and short essays in June Cotner’s superb collection are love songs to dogs that remind each of us to count our own blessings. In addition to providing inspiration and comfort, this book has many practical uses, such as offering selections for pet memorial services, quotations for cards to people who have just adopted a dog, and excerpts to read before bedtime for a better night’s sleep. Best of all, read this book to your dogs and then plant grateful kisses on their foreheads.”
Allen and Linda Anderson, authors of Angel Dogs and Angel Dogs with a Mission

Since I love dogs and relish their company, I love this book and all the wonderful poems and stories about one of God’s most complete creations.”
Bernie S. Siegel, MD, author of Buddy’s Candle and Smudge Bunny
