Eckhart Tolle, Guardians of Being: Spiritual Teachings from Our Dogs and Cats

Having lived with many great dogs (and a couple of cats), I just orded this book by Eckhart Tolle. The few pages I can see on the Amazon preview look great. It looks to be more about “mindfulness” and “spirituality” than “religion,” which suits me well. I’m looking forward to it.

“Shtop Thinking” ~ Guardians of Being (Eckhart Tolle)

There are many nice cartoons/illustrations in Eckhart Tolle’s book Guardians of Being: Spiritual Teachings from Our Dogs and Cats, and this “Shtop Thinking” cartoon is one of my current favorites. (The book is a collaborative effort between Mr. Tolle and Patrick McDonnell, artist/illustrator/cartoonist who may be most well known for his “Mutts” cartoons.)

Rocky and a bone

While I’m sharing photos of Siberian Huskies I’ve known and loved, here’s one of Rocky working on a bone. My wife originally found him stuck in a cinder block in Virginia when he was probably about 18” long, and he became the first husky we’d know. He became famous for destroying furniture, howling, and running around saying words like “Oprah” and “Geraldo.”

Drink wine, rescue dogs

If you know me, you know about Zeus, a rescue dog who came back from a very bad place. As a result of a few friendships I know a few people who would like this t-shirt. The iheartdogs.com website says that sales of this t-shirt help to feed seven shelter dogs (at first I thought that was seven shelters) through their partnership with Rescue Bank. If you like the Rescue Bank mission you can skip the t-shirt and go right to the Rescue Bank donation page.
