Title: The Book of Barkley – Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever
Author: L.B Johnson
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Book Trailer Reveal:
How Much Dog Hair Does It Take to Heal a Broken Heart?
Jet pilot turned federal agent L.B. Johnson thought she had the world by the tail, until a bundle of mayhem disguised as a lab puppy came into her life. After heartbreak as a young teen Mom and seeing too much violence in the course of a day, she wasn’t going to get too attached to another living creature, but Barkley had other plans for her.
The Amazon #1 Best Seller The Book of Barkley: Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever takes readers from the author’s depths of grief and personal despair to an empowering new life chock-full of love. But Johnson’s radical life change didn’t come from just her renewed faith in God or from friends, but instead from a black Labrador called Barkley who taught her the real, innate meaning of love.
In a wholly-unique and uplifting new memoir, Johnson tells the deeply-personal story of her life and experiences with a rambunctious Labrador Retriever named Barkley. It’s not just a story of one woman and her dog; but a bold journey to discover what love really is, and why learning to live like a dog gives humanity a powerful new meaning.
LB Johnson grew up on the West Coast in a home that always had a dog. After a few years seeing the world as a Commercial pilot she returned to school for a doctorate in a Criminal Justice Field. She works as an investigator for a federal agency, a job she states is much like those law enforcement shows on TV, except she doesn’t get to wear the clothes she likes and nothing is solved in an hour. The details of that work will remain personal until retirement but for now she is enjoying “solving the puzzle” while not at her Chicago home with her engineer husband and senior rescue dog Abby (named after the character on NCIS).
