From the 2017 Reader's Favorite Gold Award Winner for Fiction, the 2015 Silver Award Winning Memoir from International Best Selling Author L.B. Johnson.
How Much Dog Hair Does it Take to Heal a Broken Heart? Jet pilot turned federal agent, L.B Johnson.thought she had the world by the tail until a bundle of mayhem disguised as a lab puppy came into her life. After heartbreak as a young teen Mom, and witnessing too much violence for one lifetime, she wasn't going to get too attached to another living creature, but Barkley had other plans for her. The Amazon #1 Best Seller "The Book of Barkley: Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever" takes readers from the author's depths of grief and loss at a young age to an empowering new life chock-full of love. But Johnson's radical life change didn't come from just her renewed faith in God or from friends, but instead from a black Labrador called Barkley who taught her the real, innate meaning of love.
In a wholly-unique and uplifting new memoir, Johnson tells the deeply-personal story of her life and experiences with a rambunctious Labrador Retriever named Barkley. It's not just a story of one woman and her dog, but a bold journey to discover what love really is, and why learning to live like a dog gives humanity a powerful new meaning.
