BOOKS BY JOE DWYER
"Shelby’s Grace" is the story of an abused, battered and abandoned Pit Bull, agonizing in a shelter, near death, until rescued by a caring family man and animal rights advocate. Shelby’s amazing nature unravels as the tide turns when she offers healing, comfort and solidarity to her "adoptive dad" during his near-crippling struggle with anxiety and depression. Shelby continues her journey as a trained and certified therapy dog, committed to serving men, women and children dealing with physical and emotional challenges. Warming the hearts of all who encounter her, the sweet Pit Bull pup teaches unconditional love and the ability to extract inner strength and use it to overcome personal adversities. www.shelbysgrace.com
"The Dog Ate My Homework - Or Did He?"
From the vast experience I have with dogs I have learned that our canine friends have a thing or two to teach us about life and the power of accountability.
In my book, I bring readers a surprising guide to personal, spiritual and professional fulfillment by living a life of “authentic” accountability. Just like dogs do. Dogs are the most accountable among us. Their integrity and honest communication, their willingness to risk adversity and show appreciation, their presence - all are part of the seven steps to living an accountable and fulfilling life. When it comes to accountability - I follow the lessons I've learned from my four dogs who lead by example.
"Roadmap to Success"
I am delighted to have co-authored a book with Ken Blanchard and Deepak Chopra. In “Roadmap to Success”, we collaborate to highlight ways that busy people can become successful. From what I've learned, all of this can happen by looking trough the eyes, minds and hearts of a canine. In my chapter on obtaining a life of fulfillment, I introduce my "Dog's View" series through the wit and wisdom that I have learned from the dogs in my life. Open your mind and heart to see how this can transform who you are. Mr. Blanchard, Mr. Chopra and I compile our resources
and share our secrets on setting goals and accomplishing them with renewed energy and enthusiasm.
