Publisher's Description

The editor-in-chief of Guideposts magazine shares the "heartfelt, honest, lovely" (New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz) story of Millie, his beloved golden retriever, and how she taught him to be a more compassionate person, deepened his faith, and inspired him on his long-term path of recovery from addiction—with a foreword by Debbie Macomber.

From the moment his new golden retriever puppy jumped into his arms, Edward Grinnan and his wife, Julee, were in love with her. Edward didn’t know it yet, but Millie would change his life.

In this moving memoir, Edward Grinnan writes about his life with Millie—from their first joyous meeting, through her struggle with cancer, and eventual heartbreaking death. Edward shares how her sensitivity, unconditional love, and innate goodness helped him discover those qualities in himself and put his complicated past in perspective.

Edward also shares the lessons he has learned from other dogs he’s loved—like Pete, a poodle his father bought him in the wake of his brother’s death; Rudy, who introduced him to his wife; Sally Browne, a mischievous cocker spaniel who befriended the homeless in his neighborhood; and Marty, a hundred-pound Labrador whose behavioral issues challenged his and Julee’s marriage—as well as lessons he’s learned from the celebrated dog stories in Guideposts magazine.

Poignant and insightful, Always By My Side is an inspiring book that explores the unbreakable bond between man and dog, revealing how faith shapes our love for our dogs, and how our dogs shape our faith.

Editorial Reviews

"Heartfelt, honest, lovely... Edward Grinnan’s personal story, rich with dogs——including one special golden retriever——is wonderfully life-affirming."
"Maybe you are a dog lover unable to put into words that powerful bond you feel with your dog. Or you are grieving the loss of a dog. In Always by My Side Edward Grinnan speaks to all of us when we marvel at these creatures and how much they are on our minds and in our hearts."

    I eagerly waited for this book to arrive in my mailbox. I am about 3/4ths of the way through & very disappointed. I find it very hard to believe that this book was written by an editor-in-chief. This book is filled with sentence fragments, words missing in a sentence, content that rambles & jumps around leaving you wonder what is actually happening. The thought process is not accurately put together in correct form.

    Also, what I find shocking, is that the author is an editor-in-chief of GUIDEPOSTS & in several commentaries throughout the book he mentions "evolution" & evolutionary "beliefs" that are taught in the anthropological world. I'm sorry to remind him that Adam & Eve WERE NOT Neanderthals all covered in hair with their knuckles dragging on the ground. Mankind FIRST started "in the image of God" & I seriously doubt that our God looks like a Neanderthal.

    I am a serious dog fanatic & couldn't wait to read this book but I can't seem to get past all the composition errors that it has.
