Barbara Boswell Brunner '77
A lifetime of living with and loving dogs led Barbara Boswell Brunner '77 to pen a new book called Dog-Ma, the Zen of Slobber,
published in 2011. Barbara and her husband Ray brought nine dogs into
their ever-changing world of relocation and running businesses over the
years, with the dogs proving to be the single constant in their hectic
"I was a bit restless, and I
decided to start writing the book that I had bouncing around in my head
for at least 20 years. From that restlessness, Dog-Ma, the Zen of Slobber, was born," Brunner said in a recent interview for Patches Magazine.
Dogma, the Zen of Slobber is arranged in a series of vignettes that have been called "laugh out loud funny" to "heartbreaking." It is available on Amazon.com. More information is available at www.DogmatheBook.com, or read Andy Back's profile in the new Issuu version of Patches, Spring/Summer 2014.
