Facing an empty nest at home, scholar/ethicist/author Sue Halpern decided to train her labradoodle as a therapy dog. Once the friendly and eager-to-please pup, Pransky, passed his certification test (with only a tiny bit of cheating), the human-canine pair began doing weekly rounds at a public nursing home in Vermont. In this thoughtful, big-hearted, and life-affirming memoir, Halpern shares compelling, tender, and often humorous stories about the patients and staff she and Pransky befriended, and she offers insightful and intelligent contemplations about life, love, and mortality. On the surface, this is a book about a dog, but at its core, it's truly an illuminating treatise on what it means to be human. (AG)
