Global citizen. Loves reading, but most of all traveling. If I cannot travel today, let me sit in sunshine and nature with a good book!
Very enjoyable read for all dog lovers and I am hugging my dog even closer today!
If you have a dog and love it, this book is for you.
Any of W. Bruce Cameron's books. They are similar. Also Racing in the Rain is another dog book sort of similar.
This book is not at all what I expected. It is sensational. An amazing book from a dog's perspective. I did not want to stop listening it was just that good. You are hooked from the beginning and the author never lets you go. What an amazing book and what an amazing life! Truly this is man's best friend.
There are a lot of secondary characters in this book but the main character is the dog under several different names and several different conditions.
Obviously the dog. His dedication to "the boy" was amazing.
If you are an animal lover or ever had a pet you were close to, this is definitely the book for you.
The dog's catty comments about other non-human species are hysterical. Even though I'm a cat lady, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Cameron is new to me. I loved this book! If you are a dog lover, you will too. One review stated you'll need tissues, they are right. It tugs on your heart strings for sure.
George K. Wilson did a fantabulous job narrating the story. I loved his voice. You listen to this story and you can just imagine your own dog thinking/feeling these things.
You will enjoy this story, buy it!
This was a very touching book that was effectively told from the dog's point of view. While I have owned several dogs, listening to this book really helped to give me some fresh insights on their world. Beyond that, the story itself was cleverly done and enjoyable from start to finish.
I have nothing to offer anyone except my own confusion.
Yes. I'm in a job where I have to make difficult decisions and deal with people that ... make me not like people very much. This novel and it's follow up (I listened to both in a matter of days) made me happy, sad and hug my dog like I hadn't in a long time.
Any of Toby's ultimate reincarnations. As far as I know the story is unique in telling the story of an extended family through a dogs eyes, and the undying love each of these dogs shows this family is wonderful.
Yes, but I'd prefer not to post them where people who haven't yet read the book might read them.
If you have ever loved a dog and found yourself wishing you knew what he was thinking, you will love this book.
Love the way he brought the dog to life and made his personlity shine.
Married mother of three teenagers, back to work after 15 years at home - when I read a lot. Now I am the assistant to the Mayor of Omaha and work at least 60 hours a week, and on top of what I have to do at home - no more books. This lets me listen to the classics, the latest, whatever I want. I can learn or escape. I have always love audio books, but now I NEED them.
At my house, we have voices for our dogs, and include them in conversations. We guess at what they think is important - their food, belly rubs, and our loving them - and Bruce Cameron seems to agree. I love this dog in all of his (and her) forms, and also love the sequel - a worthwhile completion of this story. I don't want to say too much because the joy of following this creature through it's lives is so rewarding. This is a lighthearted story on it's surface, so you need delve no deeper than that, but I find I think about my own life so much more whenever I look into the eyes of my dog (or remember the dog I have that died this year) and wonder what they could have thought of me. I feel a deeper connection to this creature than I did before, and that is a great gift.
This was one terrific book and for anyone who loves their pet, it is a must read. How many times have I talked for my dog or cat ,as if knowing exactly what they are thinking. This novel will go right up there with Dewey the Library Cat and The Art of Racing in the Rain.
