Loved the book, written very well I loved how the dog's spirit kept on reincarnating to another dog, remembering what he learned as a previous dog

"A Dog's Purpose" is a definite keeper! I read it and immediately ordered two copies for Christmas presents. Not the usual funny Bruce Cameron, this one helps you deal with the loss of a beloved dog because it take you into his future. Tear-eyed a little? Sure, but heart-warming and heart-healing, too.

For anyone who has ever had a dog,this is a must read!!!. You will never look at your dog, or think of him/her the same way. Only with greater love and understanding.
Publishers Weekly, 2010-05-31 A tail-wagging three hanky boo-hooer, this delightful fiction debut by newspaper columnist Cameron (8 Simple Rules for Marrying My Daughter) proposes that a dog's purpose might entail being reborn several times. Told in a touching, doggy first-person, this unabashedly sentimental tale introduces Toby, who's rescued by a woman without a license for her rescue operation, so, sadly, Toby ends up euthanized. He's reborn in a puppy mill and after almost dying while left in a hot car, he's saved again by a woman, and he becomes Bailey, a beloved golden retriever, who finds happiness and many adventures. His next intense incarnation is as Ellie, a female German shepherd, a heroic search and rescue dog. But the true purpose of this dog's life doesn't become totally clear until his reincarnation as Buddy, a black Lab. A book for all age groups who admire canine courage, Cameron also successfully captures the essence of a dog's amazing capacity to love and protect. And happily, unlike Marley, this dog stays around for the long haul. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
