More and more humans arrive back and are picking up dogs, but Shep has decided that he likes to be free to hang out with other dogs, chase squirrels, and not be cooped up. The others dogs, however, still want to find their families. Callie has been taken to a pound, but the dogs locate her and break her out. Callie is upset that Shep was mean to the woman. At the same shelter, they pick up Pumpkin, a friendly young Yapper. The dogs decide to head to the beach, thinking that it will be easier to ...more
Shep really is an intriguing character. He struggles with the best of them, unsure of his decisions, struggling with forgiveness and changing ingrained ideals. I really have enjoyed watching him grow. When he finally gets his ending, they are at the same physical place the book starts, but not the same dogs return. This was a great series, five stars throughout. Maybe one day I'll go back and write a longer review, but I have a pounding headache so maybe not today. Try it out for yourself!
This book had me crying, which is very difficult when you try to read aloud to your son. I enjoyed it, but I guess I was looking for more. It is a great story of friendship, forgivness, acceptance and loyalty. My son truly enjoyed it and was ready to bring me tissues when I needed them. :o)

This is a good book to share with your children.
