Loved It Jul 16, 2006
Since I welcomed a dog into my home for the first time 11 years ago I have enjoyed reading books about other's relationships with their dogs. Among my favorites are "Colter" by Rick Bass, "A Rough Shooting Dog" by Charles Fergus and the more famous "My Dog Skip".
I loved this book. "Cliff and I" will take a place among those other fantastic books on my shelves at home.
This book is different than those in that it has a narrower focus in the story of Cliff fighting cancer while Joanne aids in his battle. It is this battle that creates the story and the lessons contained in the narrative.
Like those other books, in this book we learn that the dogs in our lives teach we humans more about ourselves than we ever knew. The author finds herself uplifted and forever changed by witnessing the force of life that flowed through her dog as he held onto and relished every moment and every breath he had on this earth.
It is a great read that will leave the reader changed as well--walking away with a reminder of the very fragile and precious nature of life itself--both in the human and animal world.
