Every once in a great while, a book comes along that reaffirms the belief that Spirit speaks to us through our animal companions and that our pets specifically choose us…to help heal our brokenness and reflect the inner spark of God that is in each of us. This is one of them.

Allen Anderson’s highly acclaimed memoir, A Dog Named Leaf: The Hero from Heaven Who Saved My Life, tells his dramatic journey of adopting Leaf, a traumatized year-old cocker spaniel. The mutual healing of this man and this dog offers valuable insights and hope to anyone who has faced the prospect of losing everything.

Learn how a scared little dog became a big hero to Allen as he faced life-threatening brain surgery. Leaf arrived just in time to reassure Allen through his extended near-death experience, which consisted of a life review, seeing a mystical light, assurance that he wasn’t finished living, prophetic dreams and visions.

While trying to heal this beloved dog back to emotional wholeness, a series of miraculous revelations (facilitated by Leaf) soon proved to Allen that Leaf was actually helping him in his own journey of Faith, Surrender and Unconditional Love. Tune in to learn about the inspirational chain of events that led to the profound bond between a frightened, abandoned dog and tough, former City Police Officer and how they helped each other heal.

Allen and his wife Linda founded the Angel Animals Network in 1996. Their 15 books about the spiritual qualities of animals have been featured on Oprah.com, the Today Show, ABC’s Nightly News, among many others.

The American Society of Journalist and Authors (ASJA) selected A Dog Named Leaf as a winner of the prestigious 2013 ASJA Awards.
