Format: Paperback
If you have not read this book, I urge you to do so and then look up the history and go visit this place in Oregon if you can. Susan Stelljes is a wonderful person...she is a advocate for homeless dogs across the United States. I KNOW...she is a friend of mine...and I am proud to know her. Great book for a lazy afternoon or anytime...amazing how animals can travel to find their way home again :)

A great little read about a true wonder dog. The author does a terrific job at creative non-fiction, taking licence to fill in the gaps with descriptive detail, based on what could be gathered from those who cared for Bobbie on his long journey home. A nice companion to straight forward non-fiction accounts of this dog's arduous trek home. Makes me want to take a trip to Silverton, to see the monument.

I loved this book. It is the fictionalized story of a dog that found his way home from Indiana to Oregon. Bobbie was somehow lost in Indiana during a family excursion. He was so determined to return to the family he loves that no obstacle was going to deter him to going home. That part of the story is real. The fictionalized part are how the dog managed to cross a good portion of the United Stated. Ms. Steljes uses her imagination to fill in the blank for us. I enjoyed every minute of the story telling. I just wished Bobbie was here to affirm the story.
