There are many books out there dealing with someone who battled cancer and won. You expect these books to be emotional and inspirational. Teresa Rhynes story has both those aspects but it's different from the others because she also tells the story of her dogs battle with cancer. You might think this would make the book a bit corny or cheesy, but that's not the case. This book is hilarious, absolutely hilarious. Well, I should really say "fookin' hilarious". Read the book and find out why.

A great beach read, which is where I read it. The first part, about a beagle with cancer, is hilarious. The second half, about the author's cancer is powerful in its refusal to find doctors without fault. The writing is average, the intimacy exceptional and the beagle delightfully "bad".

This memoir is about Teresa Rhyne, who is diagnosed with breast cancer right after she has gone through a cancer scare with her beloved beagle, Seamus.
Teresa is an attorney who is having a fling with a much younger man when she decides to adopt another dog. She is still mourning the death of her two other beagles when she stops by to see Seamus and falls immediately in love with him.
Seamus is a handful. He is mischievous, barks constantly when left alone and is always getting into something. When Teresa finds out Seamus has cancer, she is devastated and willing to go broke if necessary in hopes to save him.
Once it looks like Seamus may survive his cancer scare, Teresa herself discovers a lump and finds out she has breast cancer. Meanwhile, her little fling has turned into something serious and the boyfriend’s parents have made it clear that they do not approve of the relationship.
Teresa starts a blog and describes in detail her experience of having cancer. The book really is funny, even though it tackles such a serious subject. Seamus helps Teresa with her cancer battle the way no one else could.
Highly recommend for dog lovers and breast cancer survivors.
