JAVA: The True Story

A wonderful read! This book tells the true story of the very special bond that develops between dog and dog owner, in this case, JAVA and Stacy. It reveals the many lessons learned by each other over a few years, and the calm and serenity both find by overcoming their individual fears. The book has persuaded me to take that next step in working with animals, a passion I have had my whole life.

This book is a treasure

I love this book. I laughed, I cried, I hugged my "troubled dog" while I read this book. I am reading it again. My focus the first time was to gain insight and better understand my troubled dog and how to deal with him, but as I read I began to look at myself as well - my own fears, set-backs, successes, relationships, etc. This book has been a true gift to me. I know I will refer to it many times in order to push forward with the challenge I have with my "shelter" dog and my own life.


This is a lovely story, one that inspired me not to give up on my own troubled dog, or myself. Anyone with a "bad" dog will find this book to be full of hope. If you are interested in TTouch, its also a wonderful testimonial of the power of this modality to transform animals, and people, taking them from a place of discomfort, emotionally and physically, to one of health and happiness. Whenever I am frustrated with my troubled dog, I think of Java and Stacy, and all they accomplished together, and it helps me to find the patience to help my boy work through his fears. Definitely a book for dog lovers!

Couldn't put it down!

I just started reading JAVA last night, I could not put it down. It's been a long time since a book has been able to make me laugh and cry and totally escape!! I am a dog owner ofcourse so that is the great part, Stacy shares her relationship with her beauty Java and also relates to her own self as a human and how in life we go through many paths and she uses introspect through her relatinoship and experience with Java to depict this very thing! The way the book is written lures you in and makes you think of lots of different things. Even non dog owners I feel would love and learn a lot from this book. I highly recommend it, it's great! WEll done STacy and Java!

I loved this book!

It was such a pleasure to read of the evolving relationships of Stacy & Java, their growth together and their experiences of life. They are both very conscious and courageous beings and this book is filled with wisdom. I wasn't expecting the depth that I found here. A valuable read whether you're an animal lover or not. Very fun. Very touching. Thank you, Stacy.
