She recommends, Lessons from Lucy: The Simple Joys of an Old, Happy Dog by Dave Barry
Comedian Dave Barry realizes that his dog, Lucy, is dealing with old age far better than he is. She has more friends, fewer worries, and way more fun. So Dave decides to figure out how Lucy manages to stay so happy, to see if he can make his own life happier by doing the things she does. Super cute and a fast read!
