This book was not what I expected. Actually, I had no idea what to expect when I request this book. Instead what I got was a picture book for adults. A short book (96 pages) and most were filled with photographs of beautiful dogs that wove through the authors narrative. I am not sure if I got the real point of the book, unless it was to make me smile in which case it succeeded. A nice quick read if you have a rainy day and want a smile.
