A very enjoyable book about the life of a stray dog in Bhutan. When one has traveled through Bhutan one can appreciate the meaning in this book and the culture of Bhutan as portrayed in this book.

Dawa thinks better than humans, in fact he is way more caring, smart and thoughtful compared to humans. The found the story a bit sad in the beginning but it was fun.
