Publisher's Summary

The follow-up to Life is Good, in which Trixie expounded on the good life while pondering some "eternal mysteries" such as "did Shakespeare really write his plays himself or did his dog help?"

This inspiring collection of observations will offer heartfelt insights from the vantage point of doggy heaven. Most importantly, this book will serve as a cherished reminder that the love of our canine best friend is a love that lasts more than a lifetime.

    "A MUST read..."

    Oh...to be a dog! They see everything so much clearer than we do. They don't complicate things.
    A wonderful short read that will teach you (if you are teachable) to be a great human!

    "A Great Hour of Fun!"

    I was a little skeptical when I first saw that Dean Koontz had written a book from his dog's perspective. However, being an animal lover I decided to give it a try. Not only did I laugh through the entire book... my husband and I laughed together the 3 other times we listened to it... and my sister and parents are still laughing about it! It is uplifting, funny, accurate, insightful, and entirely believable. You can actually visualize Trixie thinking these things! We all loved it immensely!

    "Talking dog?"

    This book is written from the perspective of Dean Koontz's dog Trixie. A very cute, laugh-out-loud tribute to dog-lovers everywhere. While listening I pictured my dog Patches speaking in the very same voice as the narrator. Hilarious!

    "Bliss to You"

    This is a very nice, sweet story. I will keep it in my library--one of those I wish to revisit periodically.

    Story
    "a dog knows"
    If you could sum up Bliss to You in three words, what would they be?

    Life affirming seriously.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course the dog as a dog KNOWS joy that humans have a hard time finding.


    What about Teryn McKewin’s performance did you like?

    The ability to make one believe with nuances that this is a dog talking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me laugh often. A dog has the ability to tell people how great life is and how simple it is to find the good points in life.


    Any additional comments?

    I have a 12 year old guide dog and after hearing this, I no longer spend every day dreading her passing. She has had a great life and I love knowing we will meet again. THIS dog got too many "cookies" and I got yelled at. Jackie and Trixie can pig out on the rainbow bridge and no one fussing about weight, the cookie thing was so cute.

    Story
    "The CUTEST hour of my life!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bliss to You to be better than the print version?

    The voice of the narraitor, was great and I would never have been able to imagine that while reading.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well it's only Trixie....


    What about Teryn McKewin’s performance did you like?

    Captured the tone of how we would imagine a dog to speak!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Loved it!"
    Where does Bliss to You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    What a wonderful book. I've listened to it twice. We recently lost our Black Lab so this story brought tears & laughter to my husband & I. I highly recommend it for all ages. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    We all need a little bliss in our life. It is possible to find it.

    "Cute Story"

    I found the book cute, though I enjoyed more of the one liners than the general story. Part of the reason could be that I have very atypical pets (a dog who doesn't like peanut butter and cats that are very social and get along pretty well with the dog). I did not like the narrator of the audiobook, I found the voice to be very distracting to the story.

    No one


    What was most disappointing about Trixie Koontz and Dean Koontz ’s story?

    The narration
