Yes, only a dog lover could really appreciate this book! Well written and sensitive!
This story presented from a dog's perspective is both heart warming and heart-breaking. It is filled with accounts of the positive and negative aspects of being with a dog attempting to both live with seniors and be a companion to them.
It shares warm, loving experiences, difficult situations, and helped me deal with so many unsolved, remaining issues of being a child and family member filled with grief, regrets, sadness, buried feelings of shame, and such intense feelings of loss.
This story presents a different and positive view of love and warmth at the end of life.
The sign of a good book is when you find yourself still in the story and involved with the characters long after you stop reading. This is one of those books. It is elegant in its simplicity and an absolute pleasure to read.
I toyed with the idea of simply not writing a review of this book. I don't have a feeling about it one way or the other. I'm too addicted however, to the process to stop and I enjoy adding my two cents worth. In some small way I feel I'm helping not only people who are considering reading the book but the authors too, to know how readers are reacting to their work.
What's not to love about a dog story? Nothing really. This is a very simple story, told from the dog's point of view. He's smart in a dog kind of way. But the story telling from a human point of view lacked excitement, color and tension. Wrigley is a sweet guy, but that's all I can say.
This is also a story about how dogs can change lives. So many people don't know what it is like to share your life with an animal who will love you unconditionally. No matter how long I've been gone, I know my dogs will meet me at the door with their tails wagging wanting attention. So, back to the book: Wrigley was six years old when he was adopted by Jane Peterson and rather than being her personal dog, Wrigley became the Sunridge Seniors Home's house dog. I think you will enjoy his adventures there. The best thing is, the dog does not die at the end of the book.
