I absolutely loved this book. It made me look at my pets completely differently (and also want a dog). Told from the point of view of the family dog, a beloved pet recounts his master's life through hardship and happiness. I'm not a huge animal person, but I found it really touching. Though, I have to warn you that it's got some really sad parts. I listened to the book on tape and was crying a little at work. I highly recommend it, though!!!
