The memoir of a love affair between a woman and her dog. No doubt Maggie was a special dog-a beautiful and exuberant black lab who gave years of unconditional love to her owner Kairns. Throughout their years together, Maggie taught Kairns much about the emotional intelligence of animals and the importance of trusting one's intuition when caring for a pet...Kairns offers a tantalizing glimpse into the possibility that her bond with Maggie was so deep that she had prophetic dreams in which she predicted the untimely death of her dog to an undiagnosed cancer...Tenderhearted and sincere...-Kirkus Discoveries

The book does draw you in to the relationship between author and canine, it makes you care about them both.
The HOWEVER is that there's rather a lot of ... what? New age? ... let's say somewhat out of my (and my wife's) comfort zone material. For example, the author does tend to go on at great length about dreams she's had (all about the dog, of course), and interpretation of the dreams, and going to a therapist for dream analysis. Another thing my wife got tired of was the amount of gazing they did into each other's eyes, author and dog. My wife says once or twice would have been enough.
Of course, people live longer than dogs, and like very many dog-centric books, this one includes the passing of the canine protagonist. Keep a box of tissues handy.
Anyone who has ever loved a dog, who has ever lost a dog, will identify with much of this book.
