An interaction with Linda Julius, Author of ‘Blissy extended her life despite cancer myths!’

Today, we have the pleasure of Interviewing Linda Julius. She is a dog lover and the owner of a Golden Retriever dog named Blissy. She is the author of the book – Blissy extended her life despite cancer myths!   

The book is about – How to take a liver tumor diagnosis of 24 hours, and turn it into 365 additional days of life with your dog”. 

It provides the true story of Golden Retriever dog BLISSY and her owner Linda. Blissy had been diagnosed with “inoperable liver cancer” in November 2019. 

When the vet said that Blissy has hours maximum days to live and Linda should put Blissy down, Linda’s entire world collapsed. Thankfully Linda & Blissy both refused to accept this death diagnosis. Instead, Linda started cooking with a special cooking method. This book is also an easy road map to the essentials of canine nutrition, written in easy-to-understand language.

Based on her own journey with her beloved dog Blissy, Linda describes how she met Blissy and why she finally turned to become the only true love in her life. Based on her connection to Blissy, Linda started to cook daily for Blissy in her conventional pressure cooker after the diagnosis as she knew that this is one of the healthiest cooking methods worldwide, based on the oxygen which eliminates during the cooking process. This means that all the vitamins stay inside the food. 

Linda had worked for years as a corporate trainer, teaching others how to use this conventional pressure cooker, so in that frightening situation, Linda thought, “What’s good for humans can’t be bad for dogs”.

By starting a complex research process for over a year, Linda found out that the pet food industry has let us caring dog owners down. We have depended on them in order to provide wholesome nutrition to keep our beloved four-legged buddies healthy. Although they advertise ingredients as holistic, natural, and human-grade, in reality, ingredients of canned dog food are often waste products from the human food industry or rendered meals from diseased animal carcasses. Dog owners seeking to give their dogs a better coat, better skin, and healthier teeth and gums, as well as longer lives, will benefit not only from the background data in this book but also the step-by-step instructions and Blissy’s favorite recipes for preparing the home-cooked dog food.

Please tell us about your book – Blissy extended her life despite cancer myths!

  • Do you want to feed your beloved dog in a healthy and sustainable manner?
  • Are you also tired of reading scary dog food recalls that are putting your dog’s health at very high risk?
  • Do you, as a dog owner just want a simple solution that puts you in control and allows for your dog to live a happier, longer, and healthier life? Then keep reading…

It is no wonder that we are confused, and the reason for that is that the pet food industry has spent millions of advertising dollars to convince vet clinics, veterinarians, and the pet-owning public that the only way to provide a complete diet is to feed processed industrial food. Linda opens up her world and journey with Blissy, not knowing if Blissy would still be with her at night. She always has in her mind what else the vet said, which was “the tumor can burst inside your dog, and nobody knows when this is going to happen. It can be now, in a few hours or in a few days.” When Blissy and Linda had to listen to those words in that pet clinic, Linda remembers the way her dog looked at her.

It was as if she would say to her: “Please do not give up on me yet!”
