I kept postponing reading this book. Car racing and dogs? I'm more a crosswords and cats person. But everybody who read it seemed so touched by it that i finally gave in. I'm sure glad i did! I took it in the metro as a "light read" but the next time i looked up, i was two stations passed my stop. And i admit i had misty eyes more than once. It's beautifully written too.show more

Ok, my Aunt told me to read this book, I picked it up and thought@ what is she thinking? it's 'written' by a DOG! It is THE BEST BOOK EVER!! I loved it and have gifted 4 copies which have all be read over 5 days and enjoyed as well. Even if you don't have a dog, you'll like it. It's a story of living with a family from the dog's perspective, I loved it.show more
