Secrets of a Working Dog: Unleash Your Potential and Create Success
by Bella the Boxer with Ellen and Patrick Galvin
Secrets of a Working Dog is a fun, motivational book written from the perspective of a business Boxer, Bella. The Director of Goodwill (D.O.G.) at her pet parents’ business, Bella uses examples from a dog’s lifestyle to teach humans how to live a successful, balanced life.
Among her many lessons are being true to yourself, showing real gratitude, stopping to smell (or in her case, eat!) the roses, and learning to incorporate play into everyday life. The book also includes inspiring “case studies” which are real-life examples of humans helping animals and each other, including many examples from Oregon such as the Pongo Fund Pet Food Bank and The Pixie Project. Reading this book is a pleasure, and a great way to get thinking about ways to enrich your life.
