I grew up reading Dave Barry’s newspaper columns and always found him funny. So I knew his book about his beloved dog Lucy was going to be good. He talks about how later in life, Lucy has taught him how to be a better person. For example, he talks about how Lucy loves and befriends everyone and doesn’t hold a grudge. Barry realizes that as he has aged, he isn’t that way and strives to finish out his years striving to be more like Lucy. I highly recommend this light-hearted read. I promise, it has a happy ending.
This was a great heart warming story about a little boy, Owen, who has many physical disabilities and his three legged dog and how they relied on each other to live their lives to the fullest. The story of how Haatchi lost his leg is sad but the story of all the many people who fought for him to survive and find a family is very happy. The only thing I didn’t like about the story is that it focused a bit too much on Owen’s parents divorce and troubles. But overall another happy story. You can even follow Haatchi and Little B on Facebook HERE.
I picked this book because the author adopted a senior dog from the shelter and had to deal with the pain, guilt, and questions that come with having a senior dog and knowing when the right time to say goodbye is. Since I had just recently gone through the same thing, it was reassuring to read how the author dealt with it and had the same doubts and sadness I did but also joy in knowing you gave a dog the best last years of their lives. Warning!!!This book will make you cry!
