A Dog's Purpose

If you're a reader of this blog, I think it's a pretty safe assumption that you love animals.


Post processing: 1. Crop; 2. PW's Warmer action at 51%; 3. PW's Define and Sharpen action on Smooch's face; 4. PW's Quick Edge Burn action at 23%


And if you love animals, then you love dogs, because, really, how could you not?



And if you love dogs, then you simply have to go fetch a copy of the book
"A Dog's Purpose ~ A Novel for Humans," by W. Bruce Cameron.



After you've read it, you will love your dog even more.


And you'll have a better idea why your dog does some of those goofy things that make you smile.

  1. I'm in the midst of reading A DOG'S PURPOSE now and am thoroughly enjoying it and have learned a lot already. I sure look at Wally, and my dogs of the past, through different eyes ......

  8. ...and so I RUSHED to eBay...
    and then thought: Wait! There's the library!
    The library won't allow me to reserve that particular title.
    Back to eBay.
    "A Dog's Purpose" is on its way to me.

    PS Will you get a cut of the royalty?

  11. She has just the sweetest face I've seen on a dog. And I'll order the book first thing tomorrow - do you promise I'll find the explanation of the last pic there?

  13. I just read "A Dog's Purpose" a couple weeks ago ... I loved it! At the end of each section, I cried like a baby ... and I totally loved the ending, crying like a baby and I'm 67! I even suggested the book to one of the ladies at the library ... LOL I don't have a dog any more [use to have a Pug] and now I have a Maine Coon cat ... love her, too!!

  15. Oh lord do I love this. My boys get to be on the bed or couch or chairs. I can so relate. I can't stop smiling and love the "muffin top" with the flea collar. As always your pictures make me feel better and give me a big smile. Lucky critters for sure.

  16. I'll be getting it for sure. And also check out the National Geographic Special "And Man Created Dog." It is really sweet and looks at how dogs have been bred from wolves over the centuries and centuries and what makes dog so special to us. Very sweet indeed.

  17. Maybe Smooch just wants to play hide and seek? She's such a lovely dog :)
