A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron
This is an incredibly touching book, told from the point of view of man’s best friend. As a dog person, this book was incredibly engaging. Throughout the narrative, this dog learns about the human world and their purpose within it. A few pages almost brought me to tears. If you give this book a chance you’ll love it.
One day Maya and Mama and all of the brothers and sisters and other family members came together in a big building and sat quietly while I demonstrated a new trick I’d been taught, which was to walk very slowly down a narrow path between wooden benches, mount some carpeted stairs, and stand patiently while Al removed something from a small pack I carried on my back. Then everyone sat and admired me while Maya and Al had a conversation. Maya was wearing a big fluffy outfit, so I knew we weren’t going to the park to play afterward, but that was okay because everyone seemed so glad at how well I’d done the trick. Mama even cried, she was so happy.
