Bronze Award - Foreword Reviews, Finalist - Next Gen Indie Awards

For anyone who ever loved a pet or needed a laugh...

In this humorous and uplifting read, Belinda recounts how her scruffy Aussie terrier Killarney has helped her through the toughest of days – and taught her to make the most of life.

Killarney is not afraid of anything that sub-tropical Australia can throw at her: venomous creatures, cancer, very large dogs. She becomes Belinda’s furry comforter and cheer squad through job loss, grief, and failed romance.
You will be inspired by Killarney’s motto: grab life by the throat and shake every last drop of joy out of it. Wrestle it, if you have to.

"Dogged Optimism is an accomplished, inspiring piece of writing that had me completely hooked from the first page to the unexpected and gratifying end." Gill Pavey, thebookreviewers.com

Dogged Optimism is barking fantastic

Being a lover of dogs I was predisposed to loving a book about a canine companion, but Belinda's book took me by surprise. I love how she weaved her own story of personal growth, loss and acceptance with the lessons she learned from the amazing Killarney. There's no doubt this terrier was one in a million. Now, I need to go cuddle my puppy. Jo Sparrow
