Dog owners know the profound impact that canines can have on human lives. Many share the opinion of the author, a managing partner of a marketing and communications firm, in that particular dogs enter their lives as part of a divine plan. Shanley's narrative-a personal testimony to the life-altering lessons that dogs teach-begins with her mourning the deaths of several family members and her beloved Shetland sheepdog, Kiera. She is also coping with a career change, relocation, a new baby, and a life reevaluation. Then three dogs enter her life: another dog named Kiera, whom the author believes, because of a dream, is the spirit of her first dog reincarnated; Molly, Kiera's deaf littermate; and Magic, a rescued dog with aggressive tendencies. In learning to deal with their individual personalities, disabilities, illnesses, and issues, the author must learn new skills and ultimately make life-and-death decisions about each dog. Throughout, Kiera, Molly, and Magic help her gain insights into herself and lead her to find faith, trust, connectedness, and freedom. A beautiful story, beautifully told; recommended for public libraries.-Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Clearly besotted by her dogs, Shanley, managing partner of a marketing and communications firm, recounts her relationship with three of them. Though she swore to remain dogless after her beloved Sheltie, Kiera, died, Shanley dreamed about an Australian shepherd puppy. Convinced that the puppy was Kiera reincarnated, and over the objections of her long-suffering husband, Andrew, she found the new Kiera of her dreams and adopted her along with Molly, a deaf merle. The author details how Andrew came around and describes the joy the animals' antics gave her young daughter. Along the way, she provides an informative and touching description of how she learned to train the deaf Molly. Unfortunately, dominance was a problem between the two dogs, and she had to find Molly a new home. Later, Shanley took in Magic, an English shepherd mix with whom she felt a kind of mystical bond when she saw his picture on the Internet. But Magic became violent and had to be put to sleep. The author's subsequent depression led to a trip to Montana, where communing with open spaces renewed her spirit and restored her equilibrium. Dog lovers will enjoy this tale and share Shanley's passion for her dogs. (Nov.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
