“You can learn a lot about yourself (and God) from a dog.”

When her children asked for a dog, Dr. Peg got them gerbils. So imagine their surprise (and hers) when she adopted an abandoned dog that she met in Dallas, Texas just one day after her divorce.  In a way that only God could orchestrate, her spur-of-the-moment decision to take in a little dog she named Dallas was just the beginning of a 7-year journey that transformed her life and taught her to see herself and God in a whole new light.

From the author of the life-changing book,
Do Something Different…For a Change

…“Marley & Me” meets “The Purpose Driven Life”…

Part memoir, part Christian inspiration, a must-read for anyone who wants to learn to recognize God’s voice even in the most unlikely places.

Watch Dr. Peg talk about Doggie Tales with TaRhonda Thomas on Denver’s 9News.

DENVER – Dr. Peggy Mitchell Norwood knew she’d found a friend the moment she laid eyes on her dog Dallas in … well … Dallas.

Norwood had just gotten divorced the day before. Her friend had taken in the stray dog but didn’t have room to keep her in her home.

“Impulsively, I blurted out, ‘I’ll take her!'” Norwood writes in her new book Doggie Tales: Lessons on Life, Love, and Loss I Learned From My Dog.

In the book, Norwood lets dog owners share their personal stories of their furry family members. The psychotherapist also says it’s natural for people to connect very closely with their pets.

“Never having owned a dog before, I was caught off guard by the way that Dallas stirred something deep inside of me,” Norwood writes.

Her book also offers a spiritual side to relationships with pets.

“It was no coincidence that I met Dallas just one day after my divorce,” Norwood said. “I believe God brings people and experiences into our lives exactly when they are needed and when we are ready for the lessons they can teach us.”

Dozens of dog owners share their stories in the book, ranging from the happiest to the saddest of times. Norwood says there’s a lesson in it all.

“When all is said and done,” she said, “know that when life bites you, you don’t have to bite back.”
