The Dog Lived (and So Will I) by Teresa Rhyne

This is a memoir about a Beagle named Seamus who was found roaming the streets in Moreno Valley, California. Seamus was picked up by Animal Control and taken to the County Animal Shelter where, despite his microchip, was never claimed. Enter the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center, who came to his rescue. Rhyne falls in love with the abandoned dog and willingly takes on his Dennis the Menace style of trouble-making. It’s worth reading this book just to learn Seamus’s full name: Seamus Luxury Leisure Danger Trouble Hunger Cuteness Rhyne-Kern (the Famous). Alas, Seamus gets cancer. So does Rhyne. But the book is still hilarious—and poignant, sorrowful, affecting, inspirational and a winner.
