This is a light-hearted romp recounting life with Lex, a black lab, trained as a service dog at Canine Companions for Independence. The book offers glimpses into the lives of Lex & the author at home & as they interact with the outside world. Its vignettes, accompanied by colour photographs, describe life with the best service dog in the world. They reveal how Lex works at tugging off the author's socks, opening a door, turning on a light, picking up the author's dropped mouthstick, & more tasks Lex was trained to perform. The sonnets reveal the profound love the author has for this wonderful dog. In the introduction, best-selling author Dean Koontz writes, "this collection of sonnets relishes the beauty of small moments, & celebrates the grace that waits for us in every moment of the day".
