“Joe Camp did it again! I Love this book. It is short, a quick easy read, but PACKED with profound insight into the way dogs view life. It is a book I will read over and over to remind me that by viewing the world thru a dog’s eyes I can become a better person.” – Jane Collier
I’ve spent three decades wandering around inside the heart and soul of a dog, writing Benji stories, directing Benji movies, trying to understand how to better draw you, the audience, in there with me. This time and effort spent on four legs learning to inhale the world from a canine point of view has taught me many amazingly simple lessons about life. Lessons that can and should apply to our lives, yours and mine, because they work better.
Dogs know more than we do.
By knowing less.
They realize that one’s soul prospers from sharing, caring, relating, fulfilling. And they know there is nothing more important in life than love. Not money. Not status. Not peer pressure.
If you don’t have a dog, or two, or three, there’s no way for you to understand this concept, much less embrace it. So put this book down and go straightaway to your local animal shelter. Don’t open the cover until you have a warm puppy or a big old lab sprawled in your lap.
For the rest of us, those who have dogs, squeeze in closer for a moment and ponder this quiz. Have you ever told a little white lie? Or maybe a bigger one that wasn’t even white? Have you ever stomped through the front door all grumpy and barking at your kids, or your spouse? Have you ever questioned the value of being persistent, not giving up? Or being loyal? Or having passion? Have you ever had to work at making someone else happy? Have you ever shaded the truth in a business deal? Or pondered the meaning of the word selfish?
Your dog hasn’t. None of the above.
And we can all learn from that.
And that’s what this book is about.
