What a touching story. I really want a dog now 😦 I cried through the last 4 chapters. Make sure there are tissues handy. I laughed, I cried, I gasped… really, it’s one of the most touching stories I’ve read in a long time and I encourage anyone who would like a pet to read it as well as anyone who wanted to see the movie which opens Christmas Day this year. You know how upsetting it is to find out how much better the book was once you’ve already seen the movie.
