About the Book

By reading this newly released book for the dog lover’s soul, you are about to take a remarkable journey through the eyes of Russell the dog. At times you will find that reading about his spiritual adventures takes an open mind, and a willingness to laugh and cry. By choice, Russell has come into this life with a unique dual purpose: to experience his present lifetime as a dog and to review his previous lifetime as a man. His journey is multidimensional; taking him through numerous challenges triggering a spectrum of emotions which he resists. One of his special abilities is to telepathically hear and communicate with other animals, his Spirit Guides, and even people when necessary for his growth. In the process, Russell learns about reincarnation, karma, grace, unlimited thinking, and forgiveness - all from a dog’s point of view and that of a soul who has had many previous human lifetimes.

My Review


The Spiritual Adventures of Russell the Dog Offers a Unique Story to Readers. Telling a life story--full of love, hope, and spiritual and worldly life lessons--from a dog's point of view--brings a different, more straightforward element to this book. The author allows readers to focus on various aspects of life and humanity (from both human and animal perspectives.


Readers will Enjoy the Novel's Many Messages. Even if your beliefs do not allow for reincarnation--the author still offers several life lessons that readers will take away from the story--and enjoy. Watching the main character grow and share his life experiences (and offer wisdom earned from past life experiences) gives readers many opportunities to reflect on personal challenges and life's struggles. Russell, the dog, has a lot of useful advice to offer--and the author presents it in a very open-minded, fun way for human readers. 


Would I Recommend The Spiritual Adventures of Russell the Dog by Trisha Watson?  This book will undoubtedly be a hit for dog lovers who already feel those unique dog/human bonds and connections. Readers will find an emotional, well-written story that brings hope and insights into how we live life and the choices we make. I loved the story--and I love reading Russell's thoughts on his world.


The Spiritual Adventures of Russell the Dog is a unique story that engages readers from the first page and holds hearts past the last page. I would recommend this book to animal lovers--even those who may not believe in reincarnation and Spirit Guides. Also, if you are wondering if a story told from a dog's point of view is a piece of adult fiction--don't worry--the story is never immature or false-feeling. I look forward to reading more from this author.

About the Author
Trisha Watson has a reverence for life, nature, and compassion for those in need, including, and especially animals. Of course, that encompasses pets too, and thus all her dogs and cats over the years were rescues or strays. Because of her passion, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each book is donated to different animal rescue organizations. Twenty years of self-employment helped her develop a can-do attitude. When asked about the process of writing a book she said, “This story wouldn’t leave me alone, much of it flowed easily. Some of it I don’t remember writing, which at first was spooky, but later made complete sense as the story revealed itself. My intention with this book is to perhaps provide a source of inspiration and healing for those who read it.” At sixteen, Trisha began her spiritual journey.
Over the years she has delved into many facets always with an open mind and a dash of healthy skepticism. Never looking back, she keeps moving forward in her own spiritual adventure, seeking to learn and share her experiences with others. Trisha was born in Rhode Island. A few years later her family moved to the “Mile High City” Denver, Colorado where she grew up. As an adult she was drawn to the mountains eventually settling in Evergreen, a small mountain town outside of Denver. It is there she’s built a life with her husband Mark and their two dogs, Maggie and Cooper.
