I always deduct one star for cruelty to animals. I deducted more than that for this story. It should be subtitled "Over 1,000 miles of torturing your large-breed senior dog". The longer I listened to the audiobook, the angrier I got.
Did the family not research what it means to have a dog on the trail? Unable to sleep in the shelters, areas that are inaccessible except by rope bridges, ladders or handholds? Why did other hikers and shelter managers have to constantly come to Copper's aid? Why was David so far ahead of Copper that he could lose track of what the dog was doing or failing to do?
The tone of the book is very condescending. Is it intended for YA or child readers? I certainly hope not, I'd hate to think that the author is giving youngsters the idea that this is a "cool" thing to do. The whole thing was heartbreaking.
Copper was the epitame of what a Golden is. They love people, especially kids. I cried when Copper died but also felt for his family for having had the joy of having a Golden in their life. RIP Copper you are loved!!!!!
