Recommended for: compassionate people.

The other book that made me bawl. Another favorite of 2006. Mr. Bones narrates the story of his life with Willy G. Christmas, which began when Mr. Bones was a pup and Willy was Willy Gurevitch. Now, Willy, homeless and very sick, and Mr. Bones are on a search for Willy's old high school English teacher, perhaps the only person who recognized Willy's poetic gift. But it's likely that Willy is going to die soon, and although Mr. Bones is pretty sure he knows what happens when people die -- Willy has told him often enough that they go to Timbuktu -- he's not quite sure that dogs can go there too. And if not, where would he be without Willy? Book #60 of my 2006 Book List, finished reading it on 12-10-06.
