I had never bothered to consider that there might be such a thing as a boy, but now that I had found one, I thought it was just about the most wonderful concept in the world.Ahhh, snap goes one heartstring right away.
Cleaning the dishes was where the boy would put a plate of food down and I would lick it. It was one of my jobs, but only when Mom wasn’t watching.If you haven't guessed already, our narrator is a dog but he isn't a typical dog - he keeps getting reincarnated.
“Bailey’s a hero, now. Todd’s leg took eight stitches.” At the mention of my name, both Duchess and I froze. Dog biscuits, maybe?The only thing that kept this from being a 5-star book was the ending.
The job of a good dog was ultimately to be with them, remaining by their sides no matter what course their lives might take. All I could do now was offer him comfort, the assurance that as he left this life he was not alone but rather was tended by the dog who loved him more than anything in the whole world.SNAP! there goes my last heartstring.
Because failure isn’t an option if success is just a matter of more effort.
I now knew why these creatures, these human beings, had so fascinated me from the moment I saw them. It was because my fate was inextricably linked with theirs. Especially Ethan—that was the bond of a lifetime.
Humans were capable of so many amazing things, but too often they just sat making words, not doing anything.
