WELCOME TO FURS-DAY FEATURE. SINCE, I LIKE TO READ BOOKS ABOUT DOGS AND OTHER ANIMALS, I DECIDED TO BLOG ABOUT THEM IN A SEPARATE BLOG POST ON RANDOM THURSDAYS. IF YOU HAVE READ A GOOD BOOK ABOUT A FURRY FRIEND OR WITH A FURRY FRIEND IN A BOOK, FEEL FREE TO JOIN ME! DON’T FORGET TO LINK MY BLOG TO YOUR POST.
An uplifting and unforgettable story of a US Marine, his extraordinary dog, and the road trip of a lifetime.
This. Book. Will. Make. You. Cry! Not only did I cry, I sobbed and snotted all over the place. My dogs were looking at me like I was crazy! I know a lot of people don’t like to read books that are sad especially books about dogs that are sad but since I have been through something similar to what happens in this book, I could relate which is comforting in a way. I still grieve the loss of my Trixie (she is the one on the left in the photo above) and I had hoped to take her on a road trip before she died but unfortunately, we ran out of time. Reading this story about Bella and Rob was therapeutic in a way. Also, Rob’s back story about his family and time in the Marine’s was very interesting. His trials with his family and the military were many but his relationship with his dog healed him in ways nothing else could. One of the most inspiring things about this book are the many people Rob and Bella met on their road trip. Complete strangers stepped up to help them complete their journey. Even though this book is sad in parts, I hope you will give it a try for the many wonderful and joyful parts and the lesson that is evident through out the entire book; don’t dwell on the past or the future but enjoy now and live each day as your last.
