About this ebook

A kaleidoscope of vivid, moving and highly entertaining accounts of the delights and benefits of dog ownership: an anthology of stories, freely contributed, from TV personalities, broadcasters, politicians, writers, and many others. Brought to life with colour photographs of the writers and their beloved canine companions, this is an ideal bedside or coffee table book that can be read cover-to-cover, or simply ‘dipped into.’ It conveys the key message that dogs can – and do – have a positive impact on the way we feel and live. All author royalties go to the charity Samaritans, to support its invaluable work of alleviating emotional distress and reducing suicidal behaviour. 

About the author

Jacki Gordon resigned from the Scottish Government to be at home and satisfy her yearning for a dog, and – six years on – still marvels at the positive impact that her scruffy Lurcher, Looka, has had on her life.

     Trading her long career within the public sector for that of a self-employed consultant, Jacki has continued to specialise in deepening the understanding of mental health and wellbeing, including how people can be helped to flourish, and feel more positive and happier in themselves.

     Jacki’s book successfully and delightfully combines her passion for dogs and her long-standing interest and expertise in mental health.
