F. Barish-Stern wrote this book to help pet owners understand what she didn’t understand…even after raising 9 dogs, some of whom lived into their twenties; it is a disease that any dog can catch.
A writer for more than 30 years, she has used her journalism training to interview more than 50 veterinarians, Alzheimer’s disease specialists, researchers and best-selling authors to learn more about the disease.
In “Shamrock’s Story,” Barish-Stern weaves his dog’s journey through the stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease with expert advice from these experts.
The result is a book that is a “Must Read” for any pet parent and dog lover. Whether it’s for a puppy or an older dog, this book focuses on the power of 3: prevention is key, recognition of the signs and early treatment.
Barish-Stern’s mission is to help pet owners understand this disease and hopefully never cross what Shamrock has. The how is to be aware and prepared if dementia and Alzheimer’s disease ever come knocking on your dog’s door.
She is the author of numerous books, award-winning stories and journalistic articles. Over the years she has also taught writing and edited books for many other authors.
Barish-Stern writes in many genres including Sci-Fi/Fantasy – “Code 47 to BREV Force, a Trilogy,” Non-Fiction – Writing Book, “How To Write You Book” Historical Non-Fiction, Tell it to the Future, and a poetic look at life, “New Horizons”.
Now, with “Shamrock’s Story From Hurricane Katrina to Doggy Dementia and Alzheimer’s”, she has combined her personal life experience and love of dogs with her journalistic writing to produce a book that is a beautiful story of a dog’s journey through life and hope for other dog and pet parents.
