I enjoyed the plants and gardening too because that's what I love to do.
"Charlie - A Love Story" is a book for those of us who regard our dog as a cherished family member. The author, Barbara Lampert, beautifully captured that special love some of us are fortunate enough to share with our 4-legged "kin". Barbara's love and admiration for Charlie shone through in the tender, heartfelt way she told his story, which touched every bone in my dog lover's body. Through a journal she had originally started keeping about her garden, Barbara lovingly conveys the devotion she and Charlie had for each other and the determination with which Charlie faced any and all of his health obstacles, so that he and Barbara could have more precious time together.
It was satisfying to read a "dog" book where the dog is an integral part of the family. Dogs, the sweet little souls that they are, have so much to offer those of us who are wise enough to open our hearts to them. That special dog who weaves his/her way into your heart, creating a love that will always be there and will never be forgotten, is what "Charlie - A Love Story" is all about.
