Item Description...
It seems now like a different me, the years I spent with Martin, a Doberman dog, and before he came, another me; and it is a new me now, once again, writing this. I would have been dead long ago had I continued to live the way I had before he came.

I think someone would have murdered me, given how I drank and the dives that I drank in and that I was an aggressive, angry man. I had no money and no friends. I didn't care, I couldn't have.
Thomas Healy was a drunk, a fighter, sometimes a writer, often unemployed, no stranger to the police. His life was going nowhere but downhill. Then one day he bought a pup—a Doberman. He called him Martin. Gradually man and dog became unshakable allies, the closest of comrades, the best of friends. They took long walks together, they vacationed together, they even went to church together.
Martin, in more ways than one, saved Thomas Healy's life.
Written with unadulterated candor and profound love, this soulful memoir gets at the heart of the intense bond between people and dogs.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Inspiring book you will never forget.  Jul 10, 2007
I am a big fan of autobiographies and Thomas tells his story like no other. Thomas shares his intimate feelings and how he overcame his downward descent with the help of a puppy. Anyone who has been down and out knows that sometimes you need something to grab as your life preserver, for Thomas it was his puppy Martin. Anyone who deals with alcoholism, wether in their own family or within themselves, will benefit from reading this story of triumph and overcoming the clutches of alcohol and how it effects us and everyone around us. An inspiring read you will not soon forget.
Dogs, faith, and love  Mar 31, 2007
I finished this book last night and was sorry to have it end. I had really enjoyed looking forward to picking up where I had left off the previous reading. This story was well written because it was from the heart. An honest look at oneself by a man who was redeemed and given a second chance by his love for a dog. His deepening faith over a long period of time, as a Roman Catholic, was beautifully depicted, as was his love for his mother and his wonderfully supportive sister, Mary. I would recommend this book for anyone who loves dogs; has an addiction; or wants to read an inspiring story of increased faith by a very beautiful author. Hope you keep writing more for us!
This book is about the author  Feb 20, 2007
This is a very interesting autobiographical book about the author at a crucial decade in his life journey. It's a period of life that he shares with a dog, which why I bought the book and read it. It was very enjoyable to read and I'm always happy to see it on the shelf at the bookstore because I know others will buy and read it as well. This self-taught author is a remarkable person.
Great, great book!  Feb 8, 2007
I can't remember the last time I was this moved by a book. This is a great book for anyone who has ever loved and lost someone, whether human or dog. I would like to thank the author for sharing his story and inspiring others.
More of a Person Book than Dog Book  Dec 11, 2006
A great story of how a dog can be a positive force in one's life. I was a little disappointed that the book focused more on the result of the positive force, than on the dog himself. But that's because I like dog books...
