This slim novel is narrated by Angus, a young Jack Russel who finds himself in a life-threatening predicament. As he struggles to return to his family, he ponders his life so far and the strange but wonderful relationship between man and dog. Beware: this one is a tear-jerker!
Angus is the life of a Jack Russell Terrier as seen through his eyes, from his birth on a farm to his tragic death. Anyone who loves dogs will like this book. Anyone who knows Jack Russells will LOVE this book. Mr. Siebert perfectly captures this feisty breed. I loved the way the story is told from Angus' viewpoint and enjoyed looking at the world through his eyes. WARNING: you WILL cry and not just at the end. The book is written in flashbacks as Angus reflects on his life while he brokenly crawls back towards his home. The final chapter is from the owners' viewpoint as they reflect on Angus' life. I highly recommend, but keep a box of tissues handy!
