So there I was, walking through the book store  making a bee line to the children’s section when I saw this cute little puppy dog on the cover of a  book and it was on sale for $4.98.  Add that to my to my favorite word ever, “Bliss”, it was a MUST HAVE!!!!!

I was once told that the quickest way to feel happiness is to play with a pet.  I wasn’t sure if that was true or not.  I have never been a big animal person.  I have always had pets, but I have never really been attached to them so I really didn’t understand this.  Until I was really sad and my cat came up to me to love me and make me feel better.  Then my dog would ask me to play and I would laugh so hard at him.  And I fell in love with my animals.  They have taught me some big lessons.  So it was fun picking up this book and learning some lessons on happiness from Trixie the dog.

I also have to say that it was fun reading a book by Dean Koontz that was on the “light and fluffy” side :).

This book was written from Trixie’s point of view, and was a little odd to read at first.  But as soon as I fell into the rhythm of the writing, it all began to make sense, and I really enjoyed the book.

According to Trixie, “the road to bliss is paved with dog wisdom.” And there are 8 steps.  I will not tell you what those steps are; that is for you to read and find out!  But here are some lessons I learned while reading Trixie’s thoughts:

1) Sit still and be quiet.  Meditation is good.

2)  The rising moon at the bottom of a finger nail is beautiful.  I  never really noticed this before!

3) Life without a cookie is unthinkable!

4) “Pleasure without beauty is just empty thrill”…kinda like Sex without love…..hmmm….same thing, yes?

5) “The world is a gift to  make you happy.”

6) “Here is what real meaning is like.  Maybe you’re meant to give kindness to one special child.  Child grows up, is healer or wise leader.  then your purpose was as big as any king’s, maybe bigger.”  Being a stay at home mom….priceless and so very important!

7) “It is what it is.”  “No Kidding.  if it isn’t what it is, then what would it be?  And if it is what it isn’t, what the hell is going on here?”

8)  “Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor vexation.” ~ St. Francis

9)  If I want to remain young, I must play and laugh more!

10) Grief is cleansing.

Bonus reminder:  Be grateful!!!!!!!!

This book is filled with such heart warming and profound wisdom..straight from the dog’s mouth!  You will laugh and maybe even cry while reading this book.  One thing is for certain, you will smile!!!!!


I couldn’t sleep.  Visions of artwork and poems were flying through my head tonight..all brought on by the Firewalk…  I tried to scan the picture I drew tonight, but it didn’t come out right.  But here are the poems I wrote…

Like a spiral she spins round

Full bodied and never ending

Always fertile and creative

Flowing freely, curving curving

She dances to her own tune

Wild and naked

Beneath the full moon

Never apologetic

Her laughter sings out

Daring the stars to shine brighter

Stomping the dew soaked grass

Awakening the creatures of the earth


Rise and Dance

Join in the revelry

Play with me she becons

Come play!


I stand her naked

Proud as I please!

Full bodied

Heavy breasted

Look at me!

I have curves!

I have dimples!

Juicy and succulent

Sexy and Free!




They all describe me!


She licks

She burns

She dances a blaze!

She destroys

She transforms

She calls my name!

Can you hear

Don’t you see

She lives within me!



Setting me free!



Slow to start

Fast to rise

Burning hotter

Reaching higher

Destroying and Creating

Passion all consuming




Peace making
