An unusual memoir of the indelible love, loyalty, and leadership
of a once-in-a-lifetime canine cancer companion

Richard Pomerantz





This book relates with candor, humor and poignant simplicity the true-life accounts of the indelible bond of unconditional human/canine love, and the unwavering commitment to serve of an authentic once-in-a-lifetime gifted, yet twice-discarded, and once physically deformed Anatolian Shepherd. She helped not only save and forever change the lives of her deathly ill cancer-stricken human mother and every other member of her adopted family; her life story also touched every one she met from around the world.

People who met Princess Sheba Spirit Brooks Pomerantz even for the first time called her one of those rarest of “once-in-a-lifetime” canines saying, “if she could only tell her own remarkable life story . . .” Simply stated, Princess Sheba Spirit did nothing less than save her family. Which is why—were she human instead of canine—her extraordinary qualities, skills, and traits would be aptly characterized as rare gifts of nature. Regal in bearing. Preternaturally intelligent with an obvious uncanny ability to reason. Charismatic with an unwavering purposefulness, sense of love and loyalty, devotion and dedication to duty.  Especially when called upon to become her mother’s Canine Cancer Companion—with intense focus, an innate calmness and an almost freakish composure in every crisis. A leader. A strategist. A wondrous communicator. A terrific listener and quick study. A true once-in-a-lifetime.

Told with the assistance of her human father, this is her unusual memoir of compelling, touching, relentlessly inspiring true stories from an extraordinary life. All viewed through her own and most unique lens. Soon to be followed by the whimsical illustrative sequel: “A Day In The Life Of Lucky, Mommy & Me”© (Authored by Barbara Brooks Pomerantz).
