A Dog's Purpose: A Novel for Humans

By W. Bruce Cameron

PUBLISHER’S DESCRIPTION: Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog's Purpose is not only the emotional and hilarious story of a dog's many lives, but also a dog's-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man's best friend. This moving and beautifully crafted story teaches us that love never dies, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose. Bailey's story continues in A Dog's Journey, the charming New York Times and USA Today bestselling direct sequel to A Dog's Purpose.

MY THOUGHTS: This book was given to me by a dear friend after the death of my sweet 13-year-old terrier/beagle mix, Indiana Jones. I was suffering from the grief, and this book helped me work through it. It is such a sweet, tender story told from the dog’s point of view. I also read the sequel, A Dog’s Journey, which I also loved.
