Hahtoolah | 437 comments A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron is a delightful little book about a dog that is told from the dog’s perspective. We first meet the dog shortly after he is born to the feral Mother. He has three sibling ~ two brothers and a sister, whom he names Fast, Hungry and Sister. The Mother teacher her litter survival skills.

Reincarnation is a theme in this book. The dog has several lives, and with each one, he/she learns something new that will become useful in the next life. We see life events through the dog’s eyes. When the dog is neutered, he complains about having to wear an embarrassing cone around his next. When the dog sees young lovers kissing, he refers to them as “wrestling.”

The dog can sense the feelings and emotions of humans often before the humans are aware of their own feelings. The dog experiences both loving humans and humans that are neglectful and abusive. The dog also describes his encounters with other animals. His distain for cats and horses is amusing.

I am definitely not a dog person. My sister recommended this book to me. Seeing the world through the dog’s eyes gave me a greater appreciation for dogs.

Joanne (joabroda1) | 8406 comments This looks like a book I would really enjoy. I am a dog person, and although I should not admit it, I often wonder what my dog would say at certain time. Putting this on my "take for vacation" list. Thanks for the review!
