9780762781652: Dog Named Leaf: The Hero From Heaven Who Saved My Life

A New York Times bestseller!
2012 Outstanding Book Award from the American Association of Journalists and Authors (ASJA).

Allen and Linda Anderson adopted a traumatized one-year-old cocker spaniel who had been abandoned at a humane society in Minneapolis. Soon, the troubled dog they named "Leaf" turned their home into a war zone. Although Leaf and Allen were forging a friendship with visits to dog parks and bonding time, Leaf's emotional issues overwhelmed the couple.
Shortly after Leaf's arrival, Allen, who had spent eight years as a big city police officer and survived so many close calls that Linda called him "Miracle Man," received a diagnosis from his young doctor, a Doogie Howser lookalike.  It made Allen think that his luck had finally run out. He had an unruptured brain aneurysm that could be fatal, and the surgery to repair it might leave him debilitated. 
Having seen his father live for years with the effects of a massive stroke, he dreaded that the worst fate might not be death. What Allen didn't know is that he and Leaf, like comrades facing the ultimate battle, would be there for each other with the miracle of this man and this dog coming together at exactly the right time..

From the Author:

A Dog Named Leaf is a unique story with implications that may shake some. Readers have called my experiences with Leaf provocative, entertaining, yet gut-wrenching. I hope this book will cause a paradigm shift in how people view possibilities for relating to other species.
My hunch is that many others also have dogs as part of their families. They will be excited that someone has finally revealed the truth about what happens in homes every day--animals and people are connecting at levels of conscious awareness that confound anything science has been able to prove or replicate.
Leaf and I are featured as the cover story in Southern California's Awareness Magazine. My wife and co-author Linda Anderson and I are bestselling, award-winning authors with 15 previous books that have been featured in mainstream media (O Magazine, Washington Post, Parade Magazine, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, BBC Radio, Los Angeles Times, Today Show, Associated Press, Gannette News Service, etc.) as well as New Thought publications and an interview with Shirley MacLaine on her radio show. 
The book has been listed as an Amazon Bestseller Hot 100 New Release in Memoirs. A reviewer wrote, "This is about how a dog with great love actually entered the inner reality of his friend to help save him and was able to succeed where human explanations and efforts failed." 
I would like to share what happened as Leaf, my emotionally scarred rescued dog, and I came together at exactly the right time. After I found out I had both a brain aneurysm that could burst at any time and a blood clot aimed at my heart, this traumatized little dog and I became comrades battling for our lives. My story adds the twist of startling revelations about the ability of dogs to know the unknowable.

From the Back Cover:

The inspiring true story of a man and a dog coming together at just the right moment for miracles to occur.
