The God-Dog Connection is a very gentle, non-threatening approach to faith lessons we can learn simply by watching the behavior of our pets. The premise is that God has given us these wonderful creatures to get His messages across to us in truly unique and delightful ways (which go far beyond ''unconditional love'' alone). The book is comprised of a series of 25 short stories and vignettes, each relating the animal observation first, and then the faith lesson that can be drawn from it. It is a highly popular gift book for all occasions. It is beautifully bound and jacketed, and the visuals throughout the book have an almost hand-colored look to them. Some readers find the book a perfect choice for families, as the stories appeal to a wide range of age groups. Although it is based primarily on Christian principles, it also speaks to people of many different faiths. The book is also frequently incorporated into many small study groups at churches including Pet Ministries, which Healy has helped found in several churches of different denominations. The God-Dog Connection rapidly sold out of its first printing of 5,000 copies, and is now in its second edition.

From the Back Cover:

Readers will be delighted by Healy's 25 true stories of pets, and the connection between her dual passions: animals and God.A great gift idea for the animal lover, believer, or seeker. The parallels Healy draws between animal and human behavior are thought provoking and moving, and will give readers—especially those with strong bonds to their dogs or cats—a new way of picking up the pieces of faith-based wisdom these animals impart, just by being themselves. This slim, attractive book also features photographs of many of Healy's canine and feline friends.Stories that illuminate spiritual truth and speak to people of many different faiths. A devoted animal lover, Healy finds meaning in her pets' exploits, whether it's Pookey the dog “babysitting” a cocker spaniel puppy, Kate the cat becoming a ventriloquist, or Trouble getting loose from the safety of the backyard. While based on primarily on Christian principles, people with many types of religious backgrounds will appreciate the lessons Healy learns from animals.
