Teresa Rhyne was just figuring out her life when her newly adopted Beagle, Seamus, was diagnosed with an aggressive malignant tumor. Despite his seemingly hopeless diagnosis, Seamus survived, maintaining an optimism and good spirit that would inspire Rhyne when she herself is diagnosed with breast cancer. The Dog Lived (and So Will I) is Rhyne’s story of hope and survivial, but also of her relationship with Seamus and the strength of their bond.
Our pets teach us how to live and how to love; and if we pay attention, they may just save our lives. A memoir celebrating friendship, hope, and the incredibly powerful human-animal bond, The Dog Lived (and So Will I) is a remarkable story that you’ll adore from start to finish.
