About this title


Many readers wonder what inspires the creative genius of bestselling suspense writer Dean Koontz. Much of the credit must go to Trixie, the golden retriever who has taught him things about life that no human ever could. Trixie shows us how to be happy every moment of the day, except those fleeting moments after a meal when the dish is (temporarily) empty. Dogs know how to work hard and to play even harder. With words of wisdom only a bird dog knows, and beautiful photos to warm your heart, this book will lift your spirits and make your leg shake uncontrollably with pleasure!

Trixie wrote LIFE IS GOOD to support her friends who are service dogs for people with disabilities. She is donating her royalties to Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), the national organization that breeds and trains assistance dogs for adults and children with disabilities.

From the Author:


1) We are by nature obedient. Would break no traffic laws. Except when toilet stops require brief parking in front of fireplugs. 2) Look so cute. Sight of driving dog lift spirits of human drivers, make highways friendlier. 3) Because ears tend to flap in wind, dogs make better use of convertibles than humans do. 4) Dogs do not drink alcoholic beverages. So can never drive under influence and never blast passengers with beer farts. 5) Guide dogs who drive could better serve blind people. 6) Is civil rights issue. 7) Have better self image, bark less, wag more. 8) Dogs don’t need maps. Can smell our way anywhere.
