I loved this book. It made me laugh and cry. It had a wonderful way of letting you see how a dog thinks. If you love dogs than you will enjoy this book.
It took a bit to really get into the dogs body but once I mangaed that, it gave such a unique perspective and I thoroughly enjoyed the story.Laughed, cried, and smiled a lot.
If you've ever had a dog or even just known a dog this book will make you smile & sometimes laugh out loud. Endearing and at times suspenseful, I listened to it once, then happily listened again with my husband while traveling.
What a great way to spend a few hours - experiencing life through the eyes of a dog - or should I say dogs! This whimsical tale made me laugh out loud and cry (even on a New York subway) - the insights and wonder of a dog are beautifully portrayed through the eyes of this special mate. I listened to this book twice, it is such a lovely idea - makes you think there might be some truth to the idea of reincarnation. If you like this you might also like 'The Art of Racing in the Rain' also available on audiobooks.
If you have never loved a dog, read no furthe: you will find this book hokey. For those of us who have loved dogs, this book is written from a dog's perspective, and it is all we have hoped for our dogs, including reincarnation as other dogs. We have relied on dogs to be our companions, have loved, cared, and lost them. Wouldn't it be great to have the best of the lot back in our lives at some point in our futures? Of course, one must suspend belief -- dogs are not literary. However, this sentimental look at the relationship between dog and human is a lovely listen. Let the tears flow -- you will remember every dog you have ever loved.
Loved, loved, loved this book. A wonderful story from a dog's point of view. It has a lot of life's lessons that we can learn from our canine friends. A must read.
This is one of the best books I have ever read/listened to, I cried, laughed, and felt very deeply moved in turns throughout the story. The reader managed to make me forget he was there, I was listening to the dog. A great listen!
This is the best book I have ever listened to. Make sure you have a box of kleenex handy because there are times when you will need it. The story is very touching, to say the least.
I loved this book! I would love to have sequels to this about other dogs. As a new dog person (I have my first ever dog), I could really relate to the story, and hope that my own dog can be as wonderful as Toby/Bailey/Buddy.
Anyone who has ever loved a dog will appreciate this touching tale. Mostly uplifting and humorous but it brought me to tears briefly a couple of times.
