There are some things in life that only a dog can teach you.
In the farming town of Riverside in Washington, Toby Fuller is feeling more alone than ever. Nothing Toby did was ever good enough for his father, but he never expected his father to leave, to abandon him and his mother forever. He loses hope, until a scruffy golden retriever called Buddy follows him home from school.
Though he’s struggling to walk, Buddy matches Toby step for step, never taking his eyes off him, as if Toby is all he needs in the world. And from that day on Buddy never leaves Toby’s side.
Buddy shows Toby a loyalty that he has never known. But then disaster strikes and Toby’s life is changed forever. Will Buddy be able to give Toby the strength he needs to carry on?
After finishing my previous books, I thought I could move the box of tissues a bit further away, but then I saw this one was next on my list and I decided to leave it where it was …
I have to congratulate myself for this clever idea, because I only had read the first few sentences and I was reaching for it already. What a great start to a wonderful story!
I don’t know the author but I was convinced she either had a dog or has been one in a previous life LOL, because of the way she describes certain things. I could not help myself and looked her up on the Bookouture website and there she was … with a Golden Retriever peeking over her shoulder. 😉
I so so so totally, utterly loved this book. I see some of those emotions in and I feel some of those signals from my dog too.
It does not surprise me at all that dogs are used for therapies, because in my opinion, they achieve more than some treatments ever could.
If you are a dog lover, you will love this story too. If you are wondering why people love there furry friend so much, you should read it and maybe you will understand why. 5 stars.
Thank you, Casey Wilson and Bookouture
