it was amazing

A powerful tale of courage and trust. I picked this book because I thought it was a dog story and also I was traveling to the states soon. I was expecting to learn something about the country I was about to visit. 9/11 was one of the crucial event of their country as so it is to the world also. Story of smart dog was merely entering point for me to get to know the event from a different angle. However, this book is more than that. It is about how trust can thrust amid of difficulties and create a way to get through the situation. Trust between a guide dog and her owner saved lives of their own and others. The owner, blind from the beginning of his life, made his way into the world by trusting his abilities to sense and vision, and also by being in belief of his parents that he can be independent and happy like any other people can be. Reader of this book will learn power of trust and courage through his story. If you are in the life of struggle to free yourself from things that are embedded in your life beyond your will and many people tend to consider to be obstacle or constraints will find this book empowering.

Janet If you haven't read "a dogs purpose" by W Bruce Cameron, you must do so. You will love it! I think it may be my all time favorite book.
