My Dog

My heart dog was a maltese named Maui. She was the inspiration for my book "How to Meditate with Your Dog: An Introduction to Meditation for Dog Lovers." Maui was also the force that drove me to help change the quarantine laws in Hawaii so that I could bring her to her namesake island home. She was a loyal and loving companion who was wise (and equally opinionated) beyond any comprehension. She lead me to many amazing serendipitous events and people--including to my wife, Molly. She is forever alive in my heart.
