As a rule I avoid sad dog things. Not because I don't like dogs, but because I love them. For me, a sad situation with a dog is 1000x worse than with a person, and I just don't have the emotional capability to keep it together. But a friend of mine recommended this book multiple times over the past year, so I finally bite the bullet and read it.
And let me tell you, I regret nothing. This book was amazing. I cried in the first chapter and could not stop reading. The voice of this book is crystal clear. It's wonderful to hear a life told from a dog's perspective and Enzo is so much more than just a dog. He is a confident, a shoulder, a protector, and a prisoner. I love him. I love Garth Stein for doing this.
The one disclaimer I have, don't read this in public. I finished this book in an airport and thought TSA was going to have to get involved. So many feels.
There are tears running down my face and I can't stop smiling.
Somehow, for some reason, I got it in my head that this was some sort of self-help book. So, whenever my wife told me to read it, I would shuffle off mouthing platitudes and saying I would read it. Someday.
I could smack myself for waiting so long. This is, simply, one of the best, most uplifting books I've ever had the pleasure to read. This is a book that had so very much to say about birth, death, and what we do in the years between. Do not be put off by the notion that this story is told by Enzo, a dog.
Despite his fur suit and propensity for eating the delicious bits that fall to the floor during dinner, he is one of the kindest, wisest most human character I've had the pleasure to know.
This is a wonderful book that deserves your attention and will win your love with every word.
So very worth your time and money.
