The Voice Of The Family Pet

A friend and I were visiting at the library and she told me about a book she recently read about a family dog "speaking" the story. The entire book is in the person of the dog.

She told me that the story is about a family as seen by the pet. It sounded good so I checked it out and brought it home and began reading. I was 2/3 through the book and had to put it down to get some sleep.

There is something for everybody in this book, it is well written, and a quick read. I don't want to say too much except that I am enjoying it immensely. There are many things I can relate to in the book and am sometimes entertained, sometimes sobbing, and often chuckling.

I've heard good things about this book. Since I'm a dog lover I should grab a copy. I did enjoy "Marley and Me," the book not the movie.

I'll have to see if this is available as an ebook at my library. Thanks.

Thanks for the tip CiCi. I always enjoy a good read-- and from the dog's POV is a new one. I'll check it out.

I'm excited to hear how much you're enjoying this book. I bought it for my sister for her last birthday. I might have to borrow it from her.
