Vacation is always a good time to do some reading and for the beach a paperback is far superior to an e-reader. So, in my continuing quest to read more I decided to bring The Purpose of a Dog by Bruce Cameron.
I love dog books and I loved this book, but it might have been a mistake to take this one on a non-dog vacation. By the end of the week I missed my dog, Seamus SO much. I couldn't wait to get home to him. One of the dogs in the book was also a Golden Retriever and so many of the stories reminded me of Seamus. It is written from the dog's perspective. There are many sad parts to it, but it seems to get "inside the dog's head" in ways that few other books can.
