“Higher Places: The Spirituality found through our dogs,” by Annette Marie Spiezio is a beautiful tribute to the author’s dogs. She provides spiritual insight as she recounts special experiences with each dog. As a dog lover, I really enjoyed reading about her four-legged family and how much they positively impact the lives of her and her partner. I am teased so much about my enthusiasm for my dogs, I loved thinking, “I am not alone!”
I appreciate how the author tied the spiritual aspects of her dogs into her story. I also feel that my dogs have had a huge impact on my beliefs and feel that I have been blessed with so many gifts from my interactions with them. “Higher Places,” by Annette Marie Spiezio is less than one hundred pages, but it is so full of fun stories and inspirational thoughts regarding dogs, I feel it would make a great gift for other animal lovers, especially if you want to give someone something small that has meaning. They will be sure to enjoy this book!
