"Dogs Get It: Advice I learned from my best friend" is an illustrated coffee-table book featuring dog illustrations and mindful poems, sharing the wisdom and inspiration of our four-legged friends to live a more mindful, joyful life...right now.
The gorgeous illustrations are the creations of the talented artist, Hannah Chavez, and the poems are written by Mike Messeroff. As Mike began discovering the world of mindfulness and spirituality, he realized that his dog "Rocky", and most dogs for that matter, naturally exhibit some of the greatest life skills and habits.
While this is not a "children's book", we encourage you to share it with children everywhere and of all ages. Thank you for supporting this art and helping to spread our message of joy and mindfulness!

MEET OUR TEAM
After spending a decade behind a corporate desk in NYC, and several more years bartending and traveling the world, Mike now splits his time between Tamarindo, Costa Rica and Breckenridge, Colorado. He enjoys a slower life; writing, guiding others, always learning, being in nature, and spending time with his wife, close friends, and his Yorkshire Terrier "Lela" (whose name means Play and she lives up to it)! Wherever Mike is and whatever he is doing, he always brings the memory and wisdom of his sweet "Rocky" boy with him (Rocky is the inspiration behind "Dogs Get It" and our incredibly yhandsome cover model).

Rocky was never the biggest guy, but always had the biggest heart and personality, and made sure you knew it. Rocky is from New York and lived in Manhattan, Long Island, the US Virgin Islands, Aruba, Breckenridge, and Costa Rica. He will forever be the son of Mike and Alisa, brother of Lela, and a friend and wise teacher to all who knew him and all who continue to be inspired by him. After a long and wonderful life, Rocky passed on to a new adventure in August 2024, and he will always be with us in our hearts. Thank you Rocky for all you have given us and continue to share with us.
