One of the best books I've read in years

So many truths spoken by a young boy in tandem with his beautiful dog. It was so rewarding getting such an insight into cystic fibrosis from this perspective: Jasper's and his mother's. But the story went so much deeper than that. I so enjoyed listening to her transformation from a non believer to embracing the wonder if Whistler and his kind. Loved this book!

Heartwarming!

This is my second Nick Trout book and I love it. I gave the first book as a gift to a veterinarian friend after I finished. She repaid me by giving me this one. Well written. I will be listening to more of his books.

Slow but good

I am a dog person. have read all of Nick Trouts other books. liked the underlying premise but wish I would have read this book versus listening to it. His other books are better

Inspirational story of the human animal bond

This story is about many things, the courage of humans and the courage of dogs, where they find common ground and they way they can lift each other up across species. It illuminates the enormous role dogs play in the lives of modern people. People who understand dogs will "get" this book.
