Keira & Me by Noel Fitzpatrick

The Brightest Star In Heaven

Keira And Me by Noel Fitzpatrick is the most beautiful book. It will swell your heart with love and it will break your heart with love. This is a book you do not want to miss. It is a book to keep, to treasure and to savor.

Noel Fitzpatrick is the Supervet. Keira was his loyal canine companion for nearly fourteen years. Now she is the brightest star in heaven. The pair had an unbreakable bond that not even death can sever. “One of us can be strong when the other is weak.” Together they walked through life. Keira saved Noel from himself.

Some of the words are heartbreaking. “Animals love me back, but sometimes people don’t.” People judge. Animals don’t. Animals love us just as we are. “You’re not who people think you are.” With animals, we can be ourselves.

The bond between Noel and Keira is tangible. “Tomorrow is a better day because you’re in it.” We ‘hear’ words from Keira as well as Noel in the book. Keira loves Noel unconditionally. She shows him the joy in life. “Age was never an impediment to dreaming big.” While we are still breathing, we can still dream.

As a fan of the Supervet, I feel that I ‘know’ Noel and Keira. I saw their bond. I understand “great pain is the price of great love.” The grief that Noel felt after Keira’s accident, and later her death, was raw. This pain comes through the words in the book.

The whole book is beautifully illustrated by Laura McKendry. Keira’s character shines through the pages.

Keira And Me is serenely beautiful. I urge you to buy a copy.

And I will let Noel Fitzpatrick have the final word:

“The only way to get rid of darkness outside is to let light in. And the only way to get rid of darkness inside is to let love in.”
