“This is a must-read, a spiritual journey into the life of the soul
dog. This wonderful book teaches about the unconditional love and
unbreakable bonds that exist between humans and animals.”
*Bash Dibra, coauthor of Dog Training by Bash and DogSpeak*
“My former colleague Elena Mannes has always been on a quest to discover more about the animals she loves. Soul Dog takes her beyond science into mystical paths--the yearning for consolation and possibility. She writes that animals teach us to listen. Elena is their friend, ready to hear.”
*Diane Sawyer, American television journalist*
“Enlightening! An important read for people who want to connect with their dog’s soul after death.”
*Jennifer Skiff, bestselling author of The Divinity of Dogs*
“Soul Dog is a very thought-provoking book. Steeped in science and heart, Ms. Mannes passionately shares her own experiences with Brio. This book opens the door for wide-ranging musings about what dogs can teach us if we open our minds and hearts.”
*Marc Bekoff, author of Canine Confidential: Why Dogs Do What They Do*
“Do you have a dog and wonder about your relationship? Then this is a must-read. A touching, insightful, and thought-provoking book that compels you to look at your animals in a new way. It is a wonderful example of just how deep and mutually enriching the dog-human relationship can be.”
*Diane Budd, animal communicator and healer and author of Energy Medicine for Animals*
“Elena Mannes writes eloquently of her unfolding journey of awareness with soul dog Brio. With gentle nudges and congenial canine humor, Brio guides Mannes through the mysteries of animal communication and ultimately helps her awaken to the magic that occurs when we learn to trust and listen to the truth of our deeper self.”
*Dawn Baumann Brunke, author of Animal Voices, Animal Guides*
“Elena and Brio’s soul story showcases the precious trans-species adoration and communication in life and the afterlife between a woman and her dog. Discovering Brio’s creative and original mind, Mannes’s own testimony, both reflective and humorous, weaves science and personal experience into a kind of Tao of dog. She shows that sentient animal kin are teaching humans how to sit, walk, stay, and lie down in reciprocal respect, love, and joy. This book sparkles with delight.”
*Zohara M. Hieronimus, D.H.L., author of White Spirit Animals: Prophets of Change*
“Hidden in the fabric of a curly coat, Elena Mannes discovers a real, in-the-flesh angel whom she comes to know as her soul dog, Brio. She teaches us that a soul dog connects us with our own all-knowing soul, the indestructible force of God that lives within us and within the animals that we may take for granted. This brave author beautifully balances incredibly precise messages from animal communicators and psychics with scientific studies all directed at the same discovery--we are more connected than we might think. May every reader be inspired to listen to the farreaching wisdom of a trusted pet and be blessed to have your heart blown open by the healing power of their unconditional, and forever, love.”
*Belinda J. Womack, author of Lessons from the Twelve Archangels*
"What makes Soul Dog more than just another glimpse into this world is the manner in which Mannes takes nothing at face value. Bringing the author out of the isolation she experienced following the accident, Brio connected her not only to previously unknown aspects of animals, but to her own unacknowledged spiritual nature."
