Trailer for Victoria Waddle’s “The Mortality of Dogs and Humans” book on Bamboo Dart Press premieres

Because their lifespan is so much shorter than our own, a life with dogs involves repeated lessons in mortality. But there are lessons in love and tender care as well. With them, we have to learn to live in the moment “because a dog doesn’t spill regret throughout the house, doesn’t lurk in a life of guilt and second-guessing.” Victoria reflects on the lives of five dogs and how their need for the outdoors helped to create opportunities to repeatedly seize the day. A book for anyone who has ever loved a dog or needs a gift of uplift while grieving the loss of their companion pup. Preorder the book here.
