Sasha, Extraordinary Dachshund

"CJ Adams pens a warm and entertaining tale of life with an exceptional dachshund. A friendship that endured paralysis and a cure through acupuncture and holistic medicine. You will enjoy every page of this heartwarming journey through the lives of the very precocious Sasha; the devoted, but not too smart Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua mix, Squirt; the enduring pack-leader and CJ’s husband, Mel; and CJ, the woman who loves them all with every fiber of her being. All animal lovers understand that each pet that comes into our lives is special but that sometimes you are blessed with an extraordinary animal. For CJ that was Sasha. This memoir is about a cycle of life involving family, friends, paralysis, other pets, aging and loss. When faced with the possibility of euthanizing a 4-year-old Sasha, a desperate CJ turns to holistic veterinary medicine and acupuncture to save her Extraordinary Dachshund and learns how to use this “alternative medicine” to complement traditional veterinary medicine. Be prepared to laugh out loud, wonder and learn something new"

Fantastic Memoir of that will capture your heart quickly. Such a special dog, Sasha is able to nuzzle her way into the lives of many. As I was reading this book about Sasha I continued to have dog loving friends come to mind that I know would relate whole heartedly with CJ. Though I haven't had a dog like Sasha I could relate with our farm animals, particulary some my very special dairy goats. This story will work our laughter and tears in each reader!

CJ Adams

CJ Adams wrote this memoir to let all animal guardians know there are many healing options available for their treasured pets. During her research she began the process of healing from the loss of Sasha and now begins a search for her next little friend. CJ is honored by those that honor Sasha’s memory by reading their story. CJ is happily married to Mel, and lives in Boise, Idaho.

I received a copy of this book from Media Guests in exchange for an honest review


  1. AWWWWWWWWW! This was my first thought!
    I used to have a dachshund, a black and tan, long hair named Maxwell. Loved him! This looks like a sweet book.

  2. THANK YOU for that positive review!! I am grateful you took a trip down memory lane with your own pets and your friend's pets. It warms my heart!!
