Following Atticus is ultimately a story of transformation: how a five-pound puppy pierced the heart of a tough-as-nails newspaperman, opening his eyes to the world's beauty and its possibilities. An unforgettable saga of adventure, friendship, and the unlikeliest of family, it's an inspiring tale of finding love and discovering your true self.

    "An Incredible Story About An Incredible Dog"

    This is a touching story about a dog and his man. Their juorney is truly remarkable! The love this man showed for this dog is so touching. I laughed and I cried. I have two Miniature Schnauzers, so I can relate to how precious, smart and loveable they are!
