The idea behind this book is interesting. A man's long-dead father comes back as his dog and is able to speak to him. However, I felt that the book switched back and forth from really serious to totally frivolous far too often. They'd get into a deep conversation and then the dog would see a goose and take off after it. This sort of thing happened over and over and really took away from what could have been a really great book.

Sometimes there are no answers even when the questions are hard. Humorous and at times touching, I found the book to be quite enjoyable. Available only as an E-book.

Very sweet. A lovely idea that wasn't developed entirely, but for those who have suffered the pain of or father's death, somehow long.
