Introduction of book reads:
Is happiness that elusive feeling that wanders in and out of your life? One that you can’t tempt or keep on a leash to make it stay a little longer? Is happiness really that elusive or is it closer to you than you may realise? I think happiness is our constant companion – a pair of loving eyes looking adoringly up at us. Happiness is a dog.
Dogs have been our constant companions since the time we humans first walked this earth. Dogs and humans go together like peaches and cream, or ham and eggs, yet we have been less than kind in returning the friendship to “Man’s Best Friend”. In fact, the English language is replete with not so dog-friendly phrases such as ‘dog tired’, ‘dog gone’, and we may say that we have been ‘dogged’ by problems when we are not feeling too well.
It is very unbecoming of humans to speak of our loyal companions with such language.
Dogs can teach us a thing or two about happiness if we only observe their behaviour. Our lovable canine companions have a unique built in forgiveness switch. They are able to overlook our shortcomings and forget our sometimes less than humane behaviour and love us. How excited does your pooch get when he sees you arrive home? His eyes light up, he scurries around excitedly, wagging his tail so hard you swear that it will soon fly off. He pants heartily and plants you a big slobbery kiss. Dogs are uncomplicated. Even after many years they are as excited to see you as if it were the first time.
‘Dog’ spelled backwards is ‘God’. Pause to consider that under your humble canine’s shaggy exterior with that whipper-snipper tail and panting pink tongue lies a god. He is the god of happiness. A deity to be worshipped for teaching us the meaning of happiness, just as much as our trusting companion has worshipped us regardless of our numerous faults.
I propose that we create a new phrase in the English language that celebrates the true nature of our furry friends – ‘dog happy’. This is the kind of happiness that sees us excited about every day, that sees us forgetting about the negativity of the past and being in the moment. Be uncomplicatedly ‘dog happy’. Howl with delight. Laugh till you wet yourself and forgive yourself if in the process you accidentally soil the rug. Be dog happy and know that happiness is your constant loyal companion.
To Your Dog Happiness!

DID YOU KNOW?
When you purchase this book, you plant 2 trees in Madagascar. That’s right, for every book you purchase you are helping to make a dramatic impact in the lives of the beautiful wildlife and the people that call this magical island home. Madagascar is the fourth largest island on Earth and over 80% of it’s wildlife are found nowhere else, including all of the world’s lemurs, most of which are critically endangered. Approximately 95% of Madagascar’s forests have been destroyed and many of the people that live there are very poor. Planting trees restores the environment and helps protect the wildlife, but it also gives the people an income and allows them to put food on their plates and send their children to school.
