Publisher's Description

Amazing (Furry) Lessons from a Dog’s Life
You’ll be enthralled by this story of a man and his lovable Labrador retriever, Hannah, and what their canine friendship can show us about life, grace, and long walks in the park.

Hannah was Dave’s best friend. He couldn’t imagine starting a day without her tail wagging an energetic greeting, her body wiggling with sheer gratitude when her food dish was filled, and her unbridled enthusiasm for tennis balls. (How she fit three tennis balls in her mouth at once he’ll never know.)

So when Dave first learned of Hannah’s cancer diagnosis, he decided to take whatever time he had left with Hannah to cherish the moments and capture his thoughts in a journal. As he wrote about his canine friend, he soon realized that Hannah was an able (and furry) mentor of faith, grace, kindness, and forgiveness. The lessons were invaluable: from being present to trusting the master. When Hannah lived well past the expected time frame, Dave started to see that the insights he was gaining were more than just journal entries about a family pet. Through Hannah’s antics, God was preparing Dave for life itself.

You won’t want to miss this heartwarming tale of a dog who knew how to live . . . and showed her owner how.

    SUMMARY:

    Unconditional love, living life to the fullest, not fearing death, living totally in-the-momentDave Burchett experienced and learned all these things from his best furry friend, a golden Labrador Retriever, who just happened to be able to fit three tennis balls in her mouth at one time! Paralleling his dogs behavior with his own faith in God, the author also includes Bible verses, quotes, journal entries, personal stories and lessons learned through the diagnosis of Hannahs incurable cancerous tumor.

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    Okayso why on earth, as a dog lover, would I want to read a sad story about a dog with a terminal diagnosis? Having prepared myself with a huge box of tissues, I did tear up during the book but also smiled, cheered, enjoyed and embraced the messages in the book. Though his heart was breaking, Dave Burchett lived life to the fullest with Hannah, growing in his own faith through the lessons Hannah was teaching him. (Wonder if he ever did learn how to hold three tennis balls in his mouth?) Along with other hardships in his life, the author shares his own personal stories while learning lessons of forgiveness, following, extending grace, trust, unconditional love and obedience as related to God. A wonderful memoir and testimony. So, am I glad I read this book after-all? Absolutely (but keep the tissues handy)!

    I did not intend to have a dog in my home who is so tall that he can rest his chinRSCN0246 on the dining room table. It was never my intention to take walks with one hundred and fifty pounds of dog on the other end of a leash, and I certainly did not plan to love that long-haired slobber factory named Tucker. My heart has been hi-jacked by a dog.

    Dave Burchett, author of Stay: Lessons My Dogs Taught Me About Life, Loss, and Grace, is the victim of a similar hi-jacking, and he did not intend to write a book about the dogs in his life until his four-year-old yellow Lab, Hannah, was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor. With a survival prediction of three months or less, Hannahs time with the Burchett family was suddenly at a premium, and Dave began to realize that Hannahs tail-wagging, ball-chasing enthusiasm for life was a source of daily inspiration. So, with Hannah as mentor, Dave opens his journal and his photo album and shares his heart-warming memoir of Hannahs last days. With humor, candor, and a conversational style, each chapter unpacks an ah-ha moment that Dave experienced with Hannah and the other furry teachers who have blessed his life.

    The lesson which most impressed me was this: dogs live in the moment. They dont waste their energy worrying about the future or regretting the past. They are relational experts, dispensing unconditional acceptance, forgiveness, and trust (whether their owners deserve it or not). Hannahs big brown eyes were a constant source of comfort to Dave during his wifes battle with breast cancer not because she was a fountain of wisdom or theological insight, but because she continually offered the gift of presence.

    A memoir of living through loss and reaching toward joy, Stay could just as well have been titled All I Need to Know about Relationships, I Learned from Watching My Dog.

    Excellent true story, about a man, a dog and GOD. I loved this book, it tells of the life of Dave and Hannah (a lab) and the everyday lessons that GOD teaches through the eyes of a dog. I was totally touched by how real each chapter's story is. It makes you think of how your life compares to how GOD wants you to be. I enjoyed these experiences so much, I would end up reading the book out loud to my husband. It is so true and real of your experiences in real life on a day to day basis. It teaches patience, forgiveness, kindness, unconditional love and much more. I really liked how Dave would tell the story of he and Hannah and then give a bible verse and background of the lesson GOD was teaching.

    I would recommend this book to everyone of all ages, it is a great book. I couldn't put it down because it was so interesting. If you are a dog lover this is a must read book. This is a great gift book, that will be enjoyed by everyone.
