WOW! I received this book after it had been on my wish list for an extended period of time. I had forgotten what it was about so I opened the book to read the first page just to remind myself...And I didn't put the book down until I had read the entire thing! What a beautiful, touching novel. It was different than other books I have read from the view of the family pet as the dog in this story only has his own thoughts and isn't able to communicate with humans or other animals. The story is about how dogs have a purpose in the lives of humans.

I cried four times while reading this novel, and they were not all tears of sadness. There were parts of the book that were endearing, humorous and also sad. The story as a whole is one of beauty and love.

If you love animals you should give this book a try; you will not regret it. Even if you are a cat lover you will find moments in the book that make you smile wide.
