Now, I don’t want to give too much away – but I would be remiss if I didn’t dedicate a post to this fantastic book. The Philly Dog is giving away one copy of “Breakfasts with Buster” to a lucky ready who posts a comment by September 19th at noon, in honor of The Natural Pet Expo which is on September 27th. The author of the book, Valerie J. Wood, will be at the Expo! Bring your book to get autographed!
“Breakfasts with Buster” is the touching memoir of the author’s experience with her dog, Buster, who was diagnosed with bone cancer. It details their journey and experiences of taking an aggressive battle against the disease by using holistic methods to give them all what they so desperately needed – “another few breakfasts with Buster.”
What is most amazing about the book is how transferable the experience is to any pet owner who has gone through the heartbreaking event of learning that your pet is seriously ill. And if you have been lucky enough to not have gone through this, someday you might face the veterinarian who tells you the prognosis is terminal, a decision must be made today, or to fight is useless. “Breakfasts with Buster” shows that when standard veterinary care fails us, there is another option. There can be hope. There can be another few breakfasts together.
Each page turn brought a lump to my throat, or made me nod my head with a big smile across my face. We can all relate – regardless of whether it is bone cancer, or kidney disease, or any other kind of disease.
What is extra special about “Breakfasts with Buster” is the way the author chose to fight the battle – by using holistic methods. The book is informational, educational and, most importantly, a source of hope. It not only provides a detailed description of Buster’s regimen, it also provides a bibliography of resources on holistic healing, suggested foods and supplements, recommended foods and even foods that should be avoided.
Can’t wait to find out if you are the randomly selected winner? Remember, you can buy the book at the Expo on the 27th. Or, you can get it here.
