Barbara LampertBarbara Lampert is a Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in relationships. She’s been in private practice in Brentwood, California for over twenty years. She considers her work a calling and loves what she does. She has a doctorate in medical sociology and two master’s degrees – one in psychology and one in sociology. Barbara has adored dogs her whole life. They’re her passion! She notes that for a lot of people, their dogs are their best friends. She loves helping people know that’s ok – that a soul-satisfying relationship may be found with any being and needs to be treasured. Besides her love of dogs, Barbara is an avid gardener and finds herself gardening in much of her spare time. She sees her garden as a work of art. She loves being in nature – the miracle of growth, the ever-changing landscape, its beauty. Today Barbara lives happily in Malibu, California with her husband David (married twenty-eight years!) and their six-year-old Golden Retriever, Harry. Barbara hopes that Charlie: A Love Story will be a tribute not only to a magnificent dog but to all dogs everywhere. You can visit her website at www.charliealovestory.com.

Charlie - A Love Story 2Charlie: A Love Story tells of the beautiful love between Charlie, a Golden Retriever, and the author, Barbara Lampert. It takes place in Malibu, California. When Charlie turned eleven years old and started having some health problems, a journal Barbara was keeping about her garden quickly became mostly about Charlie. Charlie: A Love Story is an intimate look at an incredible connection between a canine and a human. And as a psychotherapist who specializes in relationships, Barbara brings that sensibility and understanding to Charlie’s story as well. Charlie was Barbara’s loyal confidante and best friend. He was indomitable, had a zest for life and an uncanny emotional intelligence. Charlie: A Love Story is about devotion, joy, loss, and renewal, about never giving up or giving in. But mostly it’s about an extraordinary dog and an extraordinary relationship.

Praise for Charlie: A Love Story

“Charlie: A Love Story, a valentine to a special Golden Retriever, is pure magic.  From the moment you meet Charlie and Barbara in her garden, you’ll be captivated.  Here is a story you’ll never forget.  This lovely book is destined to become a classic.”

–  Arthur Vanderbilt, award-winning author of Golden Days: Memories of a Golden Retriever

“Charlie: A Love Story is absolutely beautiful.  It brought tears to my eyes.  Charlie was truly an astonishing dog.  I can think of few people as aware of the capacity for love in other animals as Barbara.  She has captured the love of a dog faithfully and fully.”

–  Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of The Dog Who Couldn’t Stop   Loving and the bestselling Dogs Never Lie About Love

“In this very heartfelt, special book, Barbara captures Charlie’s character and their relationship with clarity and immediacy. This is a tender yet very real story of the love and devotion of a dog and his master equally beloved of each other, a story I think will always be remembered.”

– Robert Olds, DVM, from the foreword to Charlie: A Love Story
