I’ve encountered some mixed reviews of this book, but…
I loved it.
I really did. I couldn’t put it down. It was light-hearted but very touching. Yes, it’s completely anthropomorphic, but I adored the voice of the dog and all the tiny little doggy details that he captured. He must have spent hours just observing dogs in several different types of situations because he nailed so many dog behaviors and mannerisms.
If you haven’t heard about this book yet, the gist is that a puppy tries to understand his purpose in life. The book is a tear-jerker: Throughout his explorations, he dies and is reborn while continuing to look for his purpose.
It’s a darling book. The puppy’s voice is open, honest, curious, and just a little bit selfish. It’s wonderful. But on a deeper level, the author tackles several big animal-welfare issues in a totally covert way. You’ll never look at your dog in the same way again!
Because I loved this book so much, I want everyone to read it! 🙂 So I’m giving away two copies.
