Wondering what to get your mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, aunt, sister, neighbor, cousin, friend or bestie for Christmas? How about Patty Spitler’s book, “The Dog Who Saved My Life”?
OK, I’m just a little fond of this book since Patty and I worked on it together as a Covid project. We poured through piles of photos and other memorabilia
from Patty’s nearly 50 years in the broadcasting business (thank goodness her mom was a “saver”) and talked about her life for many hours to come up with her story. At the center is her love for animals and critters of all kinds, particularly Louie, the Bernese Mountain Dog who gave her a new lease on life after years of depression.
The book follows her life growing up as a shy kid in Dayton, Ohio, finding her passion as a radio DJ and, later, a TV personality. She spent 23 years as a news anchor/entertainment reporter for WISH-TV and currently is host/reporter/producer for Pet Pals TV and Great Day TV with Patty Spitler.
Here are some endorsements:
Patty’s story is so empowering. Her broadcast career, battle with hearing loss and her love of Louie will warm your heart and motivate you to take charge of your own life no matter what obstacles may be in your way.

Patty Spitler’s autobiography, reminds me of just why I chose to work in the veterinary profession. Patty’s description about how her Bernese Mountain Dog pulled her out of the depths of despair speaks to all pet owners who have experienced this sort of unconditional love. Reading about Patty’s passion for all pets keeps me focused on my mission of making life better for pets and their people!
