The Time of My Life is the story about a young girl named Anna, who lives with her family at the Lilac Doggie Rescue Ranch. With the help of Duke the Great Dane, Anna and the animals at the ranch learn about the importance of divine time and being grateful as they celebrate the life and passing of one of their dearest friends, an aging Golden Retriever named Dante. The story is told through the wisdom and love of angels, a wise old tree, and the many animals living at the ranch. This book is appropriate for anyone who has lost a companion animal, and it is good to help children better understand the passing of a pet.
