An inspiring memoir about an unruly Labrador who taught a woman and her father to overcome their grief and find peace with each other.
When Mel Miskimen's mother dies, her tough, retired-cop father withdraws into his sadness, and his broken grief is more than Mel can handle on her own. Enter Seamus: a rowdy, hapless Labrador devoted to chaos. In a spark of inspiration, Mel ropes her father into training the wayward hound for a local contest. As the seasons change, Mel finds herself connecting with her last surviving parent more than she'd ever dreamed. The unexpected result of their endeavor might just heal them all.
Sit Stay Heal will warm the hearts and tickle the funny bones of dog lovers and anyone seeking a way to connect with those they've lost.

This book made me laugh and cry all throughout. While I didn't care for the sister bashing, it was probably necessary to mention some of it to get the gist of the family roles.
I feel like other people who are grieving can do something like this in order to heal together and create new bonds. Both felt needed to help the other through the muck of sorrow and what better way to do it!
Right away, I felt like I was sitting with the author as my friend, having coffee in her warm kitchen, listening to her share her stories. The reading style was perfect in that she tells it in conversational voice. I loved it!
