A Small Dog Saved My Life

What have we come to when the death threat is now the most common response to somebody saying or doing something that other people dislike or deplore? Do you believe agony aunts should be qualified in any specific way? She certainly had strength for the two of us. A Small Dog Saved My Life told the story of how she came into my life and the sad account of my separation and divorce and how she saw me through dark times โ€” just as countless people have been helped by their dogs. It was such a step up in the world! Do you think women are more likely than men to turn to an agony aunt for advice? In my memoir I quoted many famous people poleaxed by the death of a dog. And reassured me that, yes, she would walk with me all the way through the valley of sadness until we both came out the other side. In a beautiful and powerful memoir which mixes honest, personal revelation with literature, history, and inspirational self-help, Bel Mooney tells the story of her rescue dog, Bonnie, who in turn rescued Bel when her world fell apart with the all-too public break-up of her 35-year marriage.

This is a book about transformation and change, about picking yourself up and attacking life in the way that a small dog will go for the postman's trousers - and about celebrating life, much as your canine companion will always celebrate your return, even from the shortest trip. A story of survival, transformation and love. But from the moment I collected her one sunny day we would never leave each other apart from holidays when she stayed with my lovely parents again.
