The editor-in-chief of Guideposts magazine shares the
heartwarming story of Millie, his beloved golden retriever,
and how she taught him to be a more compassionate person,
deepened his faith, and inspired him on his long-term path
of recovery from addiction.
From the moment his new golden retriever puppy jumped into
his arms, Edward Grinnan and his wife, Julee, were in love
with her. Edward didn’t know it yet, but Millie would change
In this moving memoir, Edward Grinnan writes about his life
with Millie—from their first joyous meeting, through her
struggle with cancer, and eventual, heartbreaking death.
Edward shares how her sensitivity, unconditional love, and
innate goodness helped him discover those qualities in
himself and put his complicated past in perspective.
Edward also shares the lessons he’s learned from other dogs
he’s loved—like Pete, a poodle his father bought him in the
wake of his brother’s death; Rudy, who introduced him to his
wife; Sally Browne, a mischievous cocker spaniel who
befriended the homeless in his neighborhood; and Marty, a
hundred-pound Labrador whose behavioral issues challenged
his and Julee’s marriage—as well as lessons he’s learned
from the celebrated dog stories in Guideposts magazine.
Poignant and insightful, Always By My Side is an inspiring
book that explores the unbreakable bond between man and dog,
how faith shapes our love for our dogs and how our dogs
shape our faith.
