His non-fiction account of his life with his beloved Golden Retriever (A Big Little Life), Trixie, is a book we highly recommend. I knew from the beginning that Trixie was already OTRB with so many of my other friends but mom and me still cried our hearts out for Dean and Gerda Koontz and all who loved Trixie when she went to the bridge. Definitely a three handkerchief ending!
Dean and Gerda are huge supporters of Canine Companions for Independence, a wonderful organization that trains service animals for people with disabilities. Their dog Trixie was a CCI dog who had to retire from service due to elbow surgery. Their current dog, is a descendant of Trixie.
Dean doesn't do many interviews so I wanted to share this one with my pals. He was on CBS Sunday Morning last week.
If you have never read Dean Koontz before, here are some great ones with dog characters to check out. You can find more info on all of these on his site.
The Darkest Evening of the Year
One Door Away from Heaven
Mom's absolute favorite is one of Dean's earliest books: Lightning
Check out Dean Koontz on his website, Facebook and Twitter. There is also an App and he has a You Tube page. Trixie has her own page and you can link to that from the main website. When you watch the video you will see that Dean isn't on the cutting edge of technology (really, did you see that 'puter?) but someone who works for him definitely is as he has some cool sites!
