Every dog's story
Bailey - How his expression of love were given
Great Reader. Great ability to change his voice just slightly for the different characters.
Sure - if I had the time.
I love my dog even more after reading this - if that's even possible.
The reader was so good...the book came to life!
Too many to name...he brought all of the characters to life.
Of course the dogs!
“I am the wife to a wonderful man, the mom to two sweet doggie boys. I'm all about the dog stories fiction or non!
I would defo recomment this audibook to a friend... It was so engaging and so spot on in terms of dogs, their family and the love between.
Great writing, great narrating, very emotional, I was sad when it ended, but not for long because I had the sequile to start into.
The dog... In all his forms. Was supposed to be the centre and focus and he was, he was funny and sad and Mr. Wilson's emotional narration made it all real.
Many, but when Bailey died, I actually cried.
I loved this book. For someone to write a book that is so real about how a dog sees things, is an amazing job... Since we can't verbally understand each other, Mr. Cameron must have spent YEARS observing dogs and reading into their quirks and quarks.... He did a fantastic job! I am onto A Dog's Journey now then going to get Emmory's Gift too!
Thank-you for sharing this with us!
This was a very different type of book for me to read, and it was a delight. I normally listen to my books when I'm traveling on the road for an hour or two, but I found myself listening to this as I drove around town. It's engaging, and the perspective and plot execution is novel. The narrator was spot on; kudos to him for imbuing our protagonist with humor, insight, puzzlement, and wonder. This is a tear-jerker, but in the nicest way possible. Do not let preconceived notions deter you from trying out this book!
... At least, that's what I did. What an uplifting, delicious book! By turn hilarious and heart wrenching. George Wilson *nailed* the narration. I can't imagine that reading this book in print form would be half as enjoyable as listening to his excellent narration. Thoroughly entertaining. Within 30 minutes of finishing this book, I recommended it to no less than 5 people. And one of them was a stranger in line behind me at the gas station.
What a wonderful way to look at man "and women's" best friend. There were times that I laughed out loud and others where I was sobbing. It had a nice ending that I didn't expect. I am thrilled to see that there is a sequel. Can't wait to listen.
One of my favorite stories. A new twist on a Dog's purpose. To save us humans . . .
Bailey of course. Although, Buddy did such a nice job of summarizing the lessons we teach our pets, Bailey's love for his boy was heartwrenching at time.
Bailey. Mr. Wilson captured the many personalities of Bailey, even as Ellie, and gave him a voice in the way so many of us give a voice to our own pets. His love, frustration, desperation, sadness and sheer joy was expressed in every word.
Although Bailey or Ethan might be most obvious picks, I had a particular affection for Senora. Senora's love of her dogs and the lengths she went to to rescue as many stray animals as she could has stuck with me. Her desperation at the thought of losing her beloved rescue dogs to the county was heartbreaking.
Told from the perspective of a dog who learns lessons through his lives, Tobey, Bailey, Ellie and eventually Buddy remind us why dogs are man's best friends. This is the story that what we who love dogs and who believe our dogs have saved US, wish our dogs could tell us. This story helps to answer the questions we ask when we look at our dogs and wonder, "what is he thinking? what does he know? what does he understand? Why do you love me?" I laughed, I cried. I had to say goodbye to my beloved Sammy, a 13-year old poodle-terrier mix who saved my life, midway through this book. I had to put it down and take a break. And when I picked I up again, I cried and laughed again, and was reminded of the joy that my Sammy brought to me, every day of his life.
I loved this audiobook. The narrator was very good. The author definitely knows and loves dogs and is adept at communicating the different relationships that develop between dogsand humans. I rarely get emotional reading or listening to books, but this one had me literallly in tears more than once, but in a good way. Suspend your beliefs about the afterlife, at least as it applies to dogs, and enjoy a really good book.
I am retired and I love having more time for audio books. I also enjoy hiking, birding, gardening, and genealogy.
This is a very well crafted dog story. I usually have trouble with animal stories, as I hate to listen to stories with bad things that happen to animals--but dogs always die in stories and in real life, right?. This story brought tears to my eyes several times, but somehow I knew it would be all-right and our hero would be back. Somehow, I felt taken care of by the author, as silly as that might sound. Wilson is an excellent narrator for this story. If I were to have one tiny complaint, it is that the narration ended very abruptly, even though I was aware it was the end of the book.
If you like dog stories, this is a great one, and I highly recommend it.
