The Art of Racing in the Rain



If you love dogs, this is the book for you.

        
I stayed up late to finish last night.  It's one of those books you cannot 
put down; the story of a family from the dog's perspective.  He's a smart
dog too.  He thinks ahead; he acts independently; he sees, smells and
hears things we humans cannot.  He is the center of a family coming
unraveled due to circumstances largely beyond their control.  


I'll never look at my dogs in the same way again.

Mr. Fox sent me the link to this post. It's lovely. I adore dogs, as he well knows. I shall follow you, and I hope you'll follow me too.

Love,
Lola

Ohhh, I love your new look! And I read "Last Dog on the Hill" in much the same way. Thanks for the tip!

Oh, that sounds really great. I always wonder what animals are thinking...and assume it's much more than we give them credit for.

Sounds like a great book! I am always wondering what my cats are thinking. But to be honest, I've always been and always will be a dog person!
