Contemplating Life From The Back Step: A story of life lessons learned from three slightly crazy Boxer dogs
The uplifting tale of life lessons learned from three passionate, energetic and wise Boxer dogs that popped into Angela’s life and imparted their knowledge and doggie wisdom at times when she needed it most. After watching her three tan and white male Boxer dogs – Towser, Sammie and Max – and how they spent their days, Angela realises that her dogs instinctively know how to enjoy themselves and to fill their days savouring each and every moment. It’s as if her dogs knew something she didn’t, or paid attention to the things she should have. Despite their oftentimes questionable behaviour, which has her racing to the vet on several occasions, vacuuming the backyard (yes, you read that right), setting up a stakeout to catch Sammie swinging from the clothesline, erecting an electric fence around the garden, and a very embarrassing moment at a dog show, their special kind of insight teaches Angela important character traits like patience, perseverance and resourcefulness. While the life lessons are unique to say the least, there’s no mistaking that each was cloaked in affection and dispensed with boundless energy. It makes her think about how simple a dog’s life is, how much they seem to get out of it, and the lessons we could all learn from them if only we took the time to watch. Website address
