This is a real 'tear jerker', dog lover or not.

Written from a very unique perspective, the musings of a dying dog on his last day reviewing his life alone make this an almost must read.

The uniqueness of the topics of this self educated 'personna' and final musings over life, liberty, and pursuits of the dog in his family are sure to catch your attention and emotionally snare your attention.

This would be a five-star if it didn't resort to quite the extent of emotive content that it employs to keep the story rolling.

Still a great read, but don't plan on finishing it in one sitting as parts of it may be hard to get through if you are a dog person.
