Shirley MacLaine has found a perfect love in the furry bundle of irresistible canine charms that is Terry. With her winning terrier ways and an endless wellspring of love with no strings attached, Terry has succeeded in doing what no one before her ever has: slowing Shirley's peripatetic travels, shifting the actress/author's global axis to hearth and home. Now there are few greater pleasures for Shirley than being with Terry on her ranch or on a New York street, romping on the beach together, or sharing a long plane ride to a new location for making a film. With Terry by her side, Shirley sees the world in new ways she never thought possible.
As we join Shirley and Terry we see through their eyes how they each provide a window for exploring the nature of love. Together they shared at least one past life in ancient Egypt, and possibly more. Together, too, they seek to understand world events today: Are we beginning to fulfill the ancient Biblical prophecies? Is Armageddon looming? And of course there is Terry as a constant gateway to spirit, to being fully in each moment, to that boundless love that surpasses all understanding. In a unique twist that makes this audiobook such a delight, we see Terry's point of view on Shirley's domestic and inner life, as the terrier's mistress continually questions the deeper nature of reality.
This audiobook is an utterly charming, witty, and ultimately wise memoir of one of the truly remarkable women of our time. Out on a Leash is an irresistible bonbon for the legions of MacLaine listeners, and for dog-lovers everywhere.

MacLaine is great actress not so good narrator.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Didn't really get any insights from this book like some of her others. She loves her dog, don't we all?!
Has Out on a Leash turned you off from other books in this genre?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
You could have done much better Shirley!! I usually love your books on spiritual growth, this one not so much (not at all).

A wonderful book for Dog lovers
This was a wonderful book for dog and or Shirley MacLaine lovers. An enlightening story of a woman and her relationship with another living being. Although I had my book in audio book this would have been a good fast read. Ms MacLaines way of wrighting is informative but yet a good laugh. Give it a try!
