Publisher's Summary

Direct sequel to the New York Times and USA Today best-selling A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron.

Buddy is a good dog. After searching for his purpose through several eventful lives, Buddy is sure that he has found and fulfilled it. Yet as he watches curious baby Clarity get into dangerous mischief, he is certain that this little girl is very much in need of a dog of her own. When Buddy is reborn, he realizes that he has a new destiny. He's overjoyed when he is adopted by Clarity, now a vibrant but troubled teenager. When they are suddenly separated, Buddy despairs - who will take care of his girl?

A charming and heartwarming story of hope, love, and unending devotion, A Dog's Journey asks the question: Do we really take care of our pets, or do they take care of us? More than just another endearing dog tale, A Dog's Journey is the moving story of unwavering loyalty and a love that crosses all barriers.

A Darker, Sadder Sequel

I adored A Dog's Purpose, both the plot and the performance by George K. Wilson. The sequel left me with some heart-warming moments, but overall sadder upon completion. The lead human character was more tragic, and the supporting characters were either far more heroic or far more despicable than any in A Dog's Purpose. Gloria was easy to hate, and Trent spent time between scenes having his halo polished and his wings adjusted. I won't be giving the hardcover of the sequel as gifts as I did with A Dog's Purpose. Not a bad book to be sure, but a different mood from the first volume.

Outstanding!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Dog's Journey to be better than the print version?

Yes, the narrator brings a certain something to the book that cannot be fulfilled by just reading, When I listened to the book I felt as if someone was sitting in my house telling me a story that was part of their life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

With out a doubt it was all the different dogs, or should I say the same dog in different lives. My wife and I are real animal lovers but really have a special place in our hearts for dogs.

What does George K. Wilson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As I said before a narrator brings things to the story you could never have if you just read the book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The movie tag line of "You'll Laugh, you'll cry, but you'll leave with a new spring in your step and love in your heart" Corny but true.

Any additional comments?

I listened to Mr. Cameron's first book and afterwards sent him email asking when the next book would come out, the same goes now when is the next one to be published, we look forward to that day.

Sigh, a loving tribute from Man's best friend...

This put a lump in my throat and a smile on my face many times through the reading. I has made me look at my dog and cat in a whole new light. What is there purpose and what is my role in helping them fulfill it. If you love your pets and feel a strong connection to your dog..this is a must read. Especially if you have loved and lost a pet, your heart will sing to have a unique perspective. A lovely follow up to a Dog's Purpose by the same author. The narrator is terrific as well. A+++

Even better than the first!

If you could sum up A Dog's Journey in three words, what would they be?

Of course the dog, but also CJ.

A Dogs Journey

What did you love best about A Dog's Journey?

Told from the dogs point of view.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The dog of course

What does George K. Wilson bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

He has an amazing way of changing his voice tone for different characters. I loved how he made Gloria sound as whiny in her speech as she was in her character

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both.

Any additional comments?

An amazing book, I had to listen to it twice. It truly makes you look at your dogs differently.

Hard to follow A Dog's Purpose

I'm sure the reason I didn't find this book as enchanting as A Dog's Purpose is because that book was truly a one-of-a-kind. The story of Buddy/Bailey/Ellie continues in this book - which was ok at first, but about halfway through I began to wish the author had started with an entirely new dog and a new family to go along with it. I get the overall message that a dog keeps being reborn until it has fulfilled its true purpose - I just lost interest in this particular dog and kept thinking the author had dogs confused with cats who actually do have 9 lives (hint of sarcasm). Dog lovers and soft hearted folks will still probably love this book - I'm just a crabby cat lady who found herself less than impressed.

Not as good as a Dog's Purpose

This story picks up where A Dog's Purpose ended, but several years later. Maybe it takes to many turns, it covers a lot of time and sometimes seem like to much. But it is a good read for a lazy afternoon
