A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron
This book is the story of one dog. But he is re-born as a new dog multiple times. It is all told from his perspective.
First he is the puppy of a mutt. Then he is the adopted puppy of a family (in particular a boy who he pretty much grows up with). Then he is kind of an outlaw looking for his way back to the boy...will he find him? and his purpose? and how all his lives are connected and gave him what he needed to fulfill his purpose?
It is hilarious, interesting, heartbreaking, and just generally cute (in an amazingly awesome way!). I read it while I was on vacation in Vegas and it made me miss Cam so much.
If you love a dog, you will probably love this book and wonder what the dog you love would say if he could.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
