Afternoons with Puppy : Lessons for Life from a Therapist and His Animals Paperback / softback

Part of the New Direction in the Human-Animal Bond series


Afternoons with Puppy is a heartwarming account of dynamic relationships and outcomes involving a therapist, his therapy animals, and his patients, gathered from almost two decades of ongoing practice.

It is a narrative of Dr. Aubrey H. Fine's experiences and his growing respect for the power of the animals' effects on his patients and himself.

Fine observes that healing is rarely, if ever, accomplished in isolation.

There is always a reaching out and a connection at the heart of the therapeutic enterprise.

Afternoons with Puppy reveals the ways in which our bond with animals centers our being.

Interacting with an animal, as simple as having a puppy in your lap gnawing on your thumb, strips away the unimportant and provides the neutral, primal ground on which healing and new growth can take place.

Afternoons with Puppy is an emotional journey that will continue long after the last page.
