Is "loving everyone" really possible? The answer may surprise you, as he chronicles his journey toward enlightenment, gaining insight from a very unlikely source—a four-legged guru named Mollie, who happens to be the most lovable yet mischievous dog in the world.

In his attempt to understand her ability to unconditionally love all, Chase begins to see the world through his best friend’s eyes, especially during their morning walks. Mollie’s hilarious antics and maddening behavior ultimately lead to profound insights learned at the other end of the leash. Written with heart and sidesplitting humor, this one-of-a-kind true story of friendship and a divine albeit outrageous dog delivers on its promise to reveal a pathway toward enlightenment . . . and brings each of us one step closer to loving everyone.

— Louise L. Hay, author of the international bestseller You Can Heal Your Life

— Denise Linn, best-selling author of Sacred Space and Soul Coaching

The Radical Practice of Loving Everyone is exuberant, hilarious, and thought provoking. It is an observation of the qualities that earn dogs ‘best friend’ status and make us feel so good. More important, it’s a reflection on how dogs can inspire us to be good, or at least better, human beings than we otherwise might.”
— Anita Coupe, chair, board of directors of The Humane Society of the United States (2008–2012)

“I was in tears in the Prologue and laughing out loud in Chapter One. That’s when I knew I was going to love this book! Indeed, Michael J. Chase has entertainingly captured not just the love affair we have with our dogs, but why we’d do well to give up self-help books and guru sessions in favor of studying our canines. Mollie is an utter de-light, as are the lessons we learn from her through Michael’s eyes.”
— Jeannette Maw, master certified coach and founder of Good Vibe Coaching

— Kat Jaibur, writer and founder of Tiny Changes
