Drinking with Miss Dutchie by Ed Breslin
April 11, 2011 - Amy Phelps
A writer looks back on the life lessons his dog taught him and how her life influenced him in "Drinking with Miss Dutchie" by Ed Breslin.
Breslin celebrates the life of his dog by remembering the circumstances of her first days around him, the joy he and his wife got in her prescence and the heartbreak and devestation they felt at her death.
Breslin had his own personal demons to fight - a lifelong battle with depression and mental illness and constant battles with alcoholism. Through his remembrances of Dutchie, he shows how her prescence helped him fight alcoholism more than his previous attempts at AA had.
This book is a celebration of the life of a dog and how much of an impact our pets lives have on our own. Dog lovers will emphasize with Breslin as he tells the stories of his dog's life and how much she came to mean to him.
"Drinking with Miss Dutchie" is published by Thomas Dunne Books, a division of St. Martin's Press. It is $23.99 and 274 pages long.
