New book looks at remarkable work of therapy dogs

Written by 

Author Deanna Klingel of Sapphire Valley will be at City Lights Bookstore at 2 p.m. on Feb. 12 to discuss her new book, Just for the Moment: The Remarkable Gift of the Therapy Dog.

Klingel says the book is not so much a memoir as a collection of moments exploring the special gift of therapy dogs. Klingel has two golden retrievers who work as therapy dogs, and one of them, Lily, will accompany her to the store.

Just for the Moment focuses on the inexplicable times when a therapy dog touches the heart and soul of a human and makes a difference in that life, even if it’s just for that moment. The three most frequently asked questions about therapy dogs (what is a therapy dog, how did she get to be a therapy dog, and can my dog be a therapy dog) are answered in these stories.

Klingel and Lily will be available to answer audience questions, and Klingel will autograph books at the conclusion of the event.
