Tricks My Dog Taught Me
About Life, Love, and God
For 14 years, a small, round hound named Mojo provided her reluctant master a front-row seat to life’s most profound lessons. With his trademark humor and depth of insight, popular speaker, author, and pet owner Phil Callaway shares stories that showcase such virtues as…
- Forgiveness. “When my marriage needed repair, I noticed at least one creature in our home was quick to forgive.”
- Servanthood. “In a selfish culture, my dog’s world is centered on others.”
- Grace. “Mojo is 14 now. The end is never easy, but she’ll leave a legacy of loyalty, commitment, and faithfulness that we’ll celebrate for years to come.”
As you enjoy these slices of life from a gifted storyteller, you’ll notice even more of the important but sometimes easy-to-miss meaning in the daily routines and events of your own life.

—Max Lucado, pastor and bestselling author

"Dogs teach us about life, death, and everything in between. Phil Callaway supplies the laughter. Don't miss this long walk with a good friend."
—Chris Fabry, author and radio host
"I read every word of this book and then wished there were more. I don't have a dog. I have issues sharing my personal space with creatures that don't use toilet paper. But I actually like dogs (don't tell my kids!). ReadingTricks My Dog Taught Me awakened me to the homespun wisdom other peoples' dogs can teach me. Plus, I guffawed so loudly my airplane seatmates wanted in on the joke. Read this book in public, and people will ask you where they can get a copy."
—Connie Cavanaugh, author of Following God One Yes at a Time
"A good humorist is like a good surgeon—he makes just the right incision so he can gain access to what's hurting and bring healing. Phil Callaway is a great surgeon. Tricks My Dog Taught Me made me laugh over and over. And in the vulnerability of that laughter, Phil managed to tug at my heart and challenge my soul. This book will stay with you a long time—it's a refreshing and truthful companion on a life-journey that can be scary and exhausting."
—Rick Lawrence, executive editor of Group Magazine, author of Sifted and Shrewd
"If laughter is the best medicine, Phil is the best apothecary. In this wonderful book about the goodness of a dog, he serves up humor in huge doses and somehow manages to be profound and hilarious in a single breath. Read this story of the two Mojos, and prepare to get your own mojo back."
—Mark Buchanan, author of Your Church Is Too Safe
