I’m super excited to let you know my next book, Dog Lessons, Learning the Important Stuff from our Best Friends will be released on September 5th.
It’s about the powerful presence of dogs in our lives and the transformative lessons they can teach us about love, loyalty, zoomies, grief, and more.
A special shout-out to our current dogs, Maisie, a Terrier-Chihuahua mix, and Toby, a Great Pyrenees, for patiently waiting for me to walk with them while I wrote this book. They always had plenty of lessons for me daily. Maisie, although small, has the heart of a larger dog (that often gets her in trouble) and is our lead dog. Toby, at eighty pounds, is the muscle. He howls at coyotes, Fire Department Sirens (he would’ve been a great Fire Department dog), and the theme from Modern Family.
They are the best!

Not howl or yip, just bark. She was skinny and looked young.Toby, as a Great Pyrenees — his ancestors evolved over thousands of years to protect herds of sheep from predators — immediately began to howl and strain at his leash.On our rural road in Santa Fe County, we see and hear coyotes regularly. A trio of coyotes followed us one day. They were curious or, maybe, interested in Maisie as…
