I LOVED this book! It’s a lovely story told from the viewpoint of a much-loved family dog. It’s been out since 2008 and recommended by many friends, so when I saw it at a garage sale I snatched it up quickly….and I’m so glad I did. It was a pretty quick read and the perfect summer book.
Here are a couple of the excerpts that I highlighted
- “That which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves”
- “Learn to listen! I beg of you. Pretend you are a dog like me and listen to other people rather than steal their stories” (I need to get better at this one!)
- “The race is long. It is better to drive within oneself and finish the race behind the others than it is to drive too hard and crash.”
What a smart dog…such wisdom in his words! Happy weekend to you! It’s my last here in Newport…movers come on Monday..woohooo!!
