The Story: Direct sequel to the New York Times and USA Today bestselling A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron
Buddy is a good dog.
After searching for his purpose through several eventful lives, Buddy is sure that he has found and fulfilled it. Yet as he watches curious baby Clarity get into dangerous mischief, he is certain that this little girl is very much in need of a dog of her own.
When Buddy is reborn, he realizes that he has a new destiny. He's overjoyed when he is adopted by Clarity, now a vibrant but troubled teenager. When they are suddenly separated, Buddy despairs—who will take care of his girl?
A charming and heartwarming story of hope, love, and unending devotion, A Dog's Journey asks the question: Do we really take care of our pets, or do they take care of us? More than just another endearing dog tale, A Dog's Journey is the moving story of unwavering loyalty and a love that crosses all barriers.
My Review: OMG. WOW. Sigh, I loved this book. I read it in one day, ok, maybe two but that’s it. It was wonderful to read what happens to Buddy. The trials that fall on CJ (Clarity) and just the sheer joy dogs can have towards their people. As I read, I also pondered about the many dogs I had while growing up. Not saying I believe that dogs can be reborn or anything, but when a dog seems to really know what you need. Wow. I will warn you though, you’ll need tissues to read this one. Anyone with a pet, of any kind, should read this book!
