ANDREA HURST & BETH WILSON
Enlightenment doesnít always come in the form we expect it. It need not be a self-styled guru or a complicated contraption measuring some mysterious quality. Sometimes itís as close as the chocolate lab bounding happily through the backyard, or the feisty terrier contentedly curled up on oneís lap for a nap. In the foreword to this thoughtful, wonderfully illustrated gift book, Dr. Bernie Siegel says, "Dogs are healers. . . . They seem to have figured out how to live beautifully so much better than we humans have." Loosely modeled on 1980ís underground classic The Lazy Manís Guide to Enlightenment, this charming book celebrates the simple wisdom and that special combination of natural earthiness and subtle spirituality that characterizes humankindís best friend. Distinctive black-and-white dog images by acclaimed photographer Zackary Folk are accompanied by captions of down-to-earth spiritual wisdom ďfromĒ the dogs to their often confused "owners".
