I am a dog lover, plain and simple.

 I came late to the game; I was twenty six years old when I got my first dog.  It was a whirlwind romance but I fell fast and hard for my furry soulmate. You can read about my adventures with her in my new book Travels with the Doggie LamaNow Available on Amazon!

 Visit my blog Musings from the Pack for my thoughts and updates on life here at my house.  Some entries can wind down some philosophical paths (I’ve learned some of my deepest truths from my beloved dogs) while others are just some updates or observations on all things “dog”.

 I would love to hear from you (and your beloved canine) about what’s going on in your lives.  Send me pictures and I may post them here for everyone to enjoy!

“Lily Tanzer is a powerful new voice with a humdinger of a story to tell. TRAVELS WITH THE DOGGIE LAMA will make you laugh, make you cry, smile and feel alive. Put simply: this book will save you, if you let it.” 

-J.R. Angelella, author of ZOMBIE: A NOVEL 

“While Travels with the Doggie Lama is a rollicking, fun-filled adventure, it isn’t a cute pet story, far from it. It is a powerful saga about the loving and life-changing bond between two kindred spirits. This book is a gift to the world: a beautifully crafted gem that both entertains and inspires! The language sparkles with Lily’s genuine humor, which effortlessly conveys pearls of wisdom and spiritual insights.”

-Guylaine Vallée, author of: The Happy Palmist: My Joyful Adventure in Vedic Palmistry

“If you ever wondered why a dog is called “Man’s (or in this case Woman’s) Best Friend”, Lily Tanzer reveals all in “Travels with the Doggie Lama”.  With beauty, humor and tenderness, the journey to having a four-legged Soulmate is painted with a verbal brush of unconditional love and forgiveness.

You will experience laughter, love, life, death and the Divine with a tear in your eye, a smile on your face, and love in your heart. Let me give you the directions to Keisha’s house: second star on the right then straight on until morning.”

-Tim McKeever author of “The Monk Series Mysteries” and the bestselling “The Gumdrop House Affair”, Viet Nam Veteran, Police K-9 Handler and Trainer

“Lily Tanzer has written a delightful romp of a book!  Anyone who has ever loved a dog will be able to relate to her adventures with Keisha, surely a wise spirit who hails from beyond this world. I laughed and cried at Keisha’s antics and empathized with Lily as she dove deep into herself and learned valuable life lessons from this very special dog. Travels with the Doggie Lama is both entertaining and insightful.

-Judith Balian., Founder of Excoveries

“Travels with the Doggie Lama’ is a fun read for any dog-lover, with comical tales of puppy mischief, anecdotes on canine companionship, and a bountiful collection of lessons on life, love, and loss.  Wonderfully written, the chronicles of Lily and her dog Keisha embody what it means to become truly and irreversibly transformed into a “dog person” for all time.”
