"Here, in alternating chapters written by White and Sullivan, are stories about Dinah's early and later years--her extensive and demanding travels with Sullivan for TV appearances, golf tournaments, and concerts, and her move into White's pet-filled household...there's honest talk on family dynamics, on how a blind person overcomes fears and manages to lead a fulfilling life, on guide-dog training, and on how one graceful, devoted, hard-working canine affects positively the lives of those around her. Appealing for its autobiographical content, its insight into the lives of the blind, and its message of human-animal bonding."--Kirkus Reviews
