What if: only the body of your beloved dog dies? your dog's spirit continues to exist nearby? your dog has plenty to say about the time he spent with you? Samson, an opinionated mixed breed pooch known for ignoring commands and demanding massages, recounts his life experiences to refined Golden Retriever pal Alfie when the two dogs reunite in a hazy realm somewhere in the hereafter. Carmen Ambrosio, author and art photographer, cedes the spotlight to her fickle muse and exasperated mutt motivator in this part memoir/part fictional tale. Candid photographs and insightful comments reveal the many endearing, eccentric quirks that make Samson a truly unforgettable dog.
