It is the story of someone that did not know his destiny, but followed it with unfaltering step, bound to his human companion, not by vows or paper, but in the name of the trust that was the best part of his nature. It is a story of the one that taught her to love, even as he occasionally barfed on the carpet. It is the story of rambunctious trespasses and the loving trust that bound a lonely road warrior and a dog together in unspoken understanding. It is the tale of a black Lab named Barkley. It begins in the 1960's as the author is growing up---dogs becoming part of the family. But it is only after many years of living alone following heartbreak; that Barkley finds his way to Ms. Johnson. In a wholly-unique and uplifting new memoir, Johnson tells the deeply-personal story of her life and experiences with a Labrador Retriever named Barkley. It's not just a story of one woman and her dog; but a bold journey to discover what love really is, and why learning to live like a dog gives humanity a powerful new meaning.
