"Funny, smart, uplifting, and fun, The Dog Lived (and So Will I) reminds us that animals are among our best teachers, our most powerful healers, and our most steadfast friends. I loved it!"-Sy Montgomery, author of The Good Good Pig

The tale of a dog who wouldn't let go and the woman who followed his lead.

Teresa Rhyne vowed to get things right this time around: new boyfriend, new house, new dog, maybe even new job. But shortly after she adopted Seamus, a totally incorrigible beagle, vets told Teresa that he had a malignant tumor and less than a year to live. The diagnosis devastated her, but she decided to fight it, learning everything she could about the best treatment for Seamus. Teresa couldn't possibly have known then that she was preparing herself for life's next hurdle - a cancer diagnosis of her own.

She forged ahead with survival, battling a deadly disease, fighting for doctors she needed, and baring her heart for a seemingly star-crossed relationship. The Dog Lived (and so Will I) is an uplifting and heartwarming story about how dogs steal our hearts, show us how to live, and teach us how to love.

"This poignant and fast-moving memoir of Teresa and Seamus-both definitely Type A personalities-is proof that even a hard-charging lawyer is no match for a big-hearted beagle. Their mutual triumph over terrible trials is a testament to the healing power of dogs. Four paws up!" -Martin Kihn, author of Bad Dog (A Love Story)

"This encouraging tale of finding love and love in unexpected places is full of small yet valuable life lessons that any animal-loverwould appreciate."- Publishers Weekly

"A book that dares to be honest and sad and hilarious all at once. It will help inspire many people to respond to the unexpected in their own lives with humor and grace."-Susan Conley, author of The Foremost Good Fortune

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes life has a different plan for you.... Oct. 2 2012
By Lori L. Lacefield - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In this memoir, lawyer Teresa Rhyne, recently divorced, finds herself wanting to live a simpler life. One she calls her alphabet life: A for Alcohol (Wine), B for Books, C for Coffee, and D for Dogs. Notice there is no M for Men, because she thinks a time-out would be a good thing in her life right now. But sometimes life has a different plan for you than the one you were busy planning. Enter Chris, 12 years younger, who,like Teresa, enjoys wine and books, but less so coffee or dogs. Enter incorrigible beagle named Seamus, who steals Teresa's heart with his incessent howl and big, brown eyes. Now place Teresa, Chris, and Seamus in the same room, add food, and see what hilarity unfolds. Add canine cancer, and see the determination of a beagle that will later guide Teresa through her own battle with breast cancer. Add family conflict, at times disapproving, and rejoice as acceptance and understanding is found. At times laugh-out-loud funny, at times emotional, and all the time heartwarming, The Dog Lived (and so will I) is the happier side of Marley and Me. The title gives away the ending, but it won't stop you from wanting to journey along with Teresa, Chris, and Seamus as they navigate through the landscape of cancer and delicate relationships to form a new family of three. At the essence, it reminds us of how dogs frequently rescue us more than we rescue them. Highly recommended for memoir readers, dog lovers, and anyone who loves a story of overcoming adversity and succeeding.

This book is amazing! Anyone who had to deal with cancer, lost someone to cancer, or is fighting cancer should read this book. You also should read this book if you are a dog lover! So glad this author is completely candid. She does not hold back and for that I am grateful because she is going to help others laugh, cry and give some who feel like they have no hope that extra nudge to keep on keeping on. Teresa Rhyne ROCKS!! Oh, and of course the beagle in the book, Seamus, ya he is FAMOUS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wait... it's 3am? Oct. 5 2012
By Michelle P. - Published on
I stayed up most of last night just to finish this book. It's one of those books you pick up and the next thing you know, it's 3am and you are rounding the last chapter. As a dog lover and daughter of a breast cancer survivor myself, this book definitely struck home in so many ways. But even looking past those two major themes, you will find love, heartbreak, issues with family and in-laws, and most of all, laughter. Lots and lots of laughter. I usually don't even laugh out loud (literally LOL-ing) while reading many books, but I found myself chuckling away on more than one occasion. This is a great read for any age, whether male or female, whether cancer-survivor or dog-lover or both. Pick it up and give it a read! And I'll look forward to reading your review sometime around 3am tonight.

5.0 out of 5 stars A " fookin' " great book! May 24 2013
By aFaye - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I first purchased this book on a whim at Target simply because it had a Beagle on the front cover. Being the crazy Beagle lover that I am, I was a little worried once I read the back cover, thinking it may end up being a tear-jerker. I was very pleasantly surprised that it really wasn't! Teresa's honesty and humor as she described several very difficult situations in her life made the book nearly impossible to put down. I've since read the book twice more, and I've purchased several copies to send to fellow dog lovers.

Teresa and Seamus have made a very large impact on my life, and I am beyond grateful that Teresa was willing to open her life up and share her experiences.

Do yourself a favor and buy the book! And go make some fookin' toast to share with your pup.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dog Lived (and So Will I) Oct. 4 2012
By Marcy Bruch - Published on
Highly recommended! Author Teresa Rhyne writes about how her beloved beagle, Seamus, inspired her to beat cancer after her dog battled the disease--all the while wagging his tail and inhaling food.

Rhyne chronicles the ups and downs of Seamus's cancer journey as well as her own bumpy road battling breast cancer. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Teresa goes to buy a wig only to be shown a collection of "rodent-kill" styles that are more appropriate for the "The Golden Girls." After refusing turbans as an alternative, she finally finds some hip wigs and decides to have some fun during her bald period. She gets a blonde, brunette and redhead wig. Then she ups the fashion ante by adding plenty of cute hats, scarves and earrings to help disguise that "wig-head" look. Teresa got lemons and she made lemonade.

This book is both heart-warming and hilarious. Plus, it includes an intriguing cougar tale! Pet lovers and breast cancer survivors will particularly enjoy this entertaining read. It makes a great gift!
