Mommy read the book and wrote about it for Fido Friendly. Then me and Scout read it so we could tell you all about it.
It is a very good book. It is about a dog who lives a bunch of different lives and he remembers stuff from each life and it helps him in his new life. And he learns a bunch of stuff, like how to be a search and rescue dog. Except in that life he's a girl. Which me and Scout thought was weird because we wouldn't want to be girl dogs.
But anyway the story is very funny. In one life, the dog Bailey digs up a dead cat and he wrecks stuff in the house and does a whole bunch of other dog stuff, but he explains it so the people reading the book can understand what we dogs are thinking. See, we're not trying to be bad. It just looks that way to humans.
Me and Scout were wondering if we used to be dogs in other lives and we decided we weren't because we don't remember any other Mommy or Daddy. So this must be our first lives. We agreed that we would look for each other in our next lives because we are great brothers. And then we will track Mommy down wherever she is and do this life all over again.
So anyway, you should read W. Bruce Cameron's book "A Dog's Purpose" with your Mommy. Make sure you are ready to have your fur all wet when she cries all over you at the sad parts and she will pet you and squeeze you and tell you how much she loves at all of the parts. And you can invite your cat brother to snuggle and read, too. He'll like the book, too, since just in case you didn't know, cats live nine lives.
