Loved this story from start to finish. It's a feel-good heart warmer of a special animal -- a smiling dog with a good sense of humor -- facilitating friendship, good morale and a healthier life for all.

As an animal lover -- I love these stories which show how much a non-speaking being can powerfully affect a human being and give reason to keep on keeping on.

I love this book so much. I want to read it again. But I dint have time for that. Now I want to watch the movie. I cant waitto see the movie. This book didn't really relate to but it was a good book. Maybe because I been living in the same house for 7years now.
