- “Buddhist masters tell us that the path to enlightenment requires us to live in the moment, without agonizing over the past or worrying about the future. It can feel like an impossible task, but if you live with a dog, you’re living with a highly sentient being that does exactly that. And in the marvelous and insightful book Zen and the Rescue Dog, KJ Fallon shows that the deeply interdependent relationships humans have with their canine companions help us to be centered and loving even if we never meet a monk or enter a monastery.” —Michael D. Lemonick, Chief Opinion Editor at Scientific American and the author of The Perpetual Now.
