Publisher's Summary

A Dog's Purpose - which spent a year on the New York Times bestseller list – is heading to the big screen! Based on the beloved best-selling novel by W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog's Purpose shares the soulful and surprising story of one devoted dog who finds the meaning of his own existence through the lives of the humans he teaches to laugh and love.
Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog's Purpose is not only the emotional and hilarious story of a dog's many lives, but also a dog's-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man's best friend. This moving and beautifully crafted story teaches us that love never dies, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.
Bailey's story continues in A Dog's Journey, the charming New York Times and USA Today best-selling direct sequel to A Dog's Purpose.

A Good Dog? The BEST Dog!!!

Anything with animals, I looove! That said, the start of "A Dog's Purpose" had me thinking I was going to be knocking off stars from my rating. After all, the writing is rather simple and, at first, I found the narration to be rather hammy.
How surprised and delighted I was, then, to find wonderful characterizations of several "purposes" and intricate weaving of plots that rounded out into a totally fabulous story that had me with a lump in my throat (SEVERAL times), and tears running down my face (which I hastily rubbed away before people around me could notice).
The only, only, ONLY reservation I have about the book is that it specifically states things in words that don't need to be stated because they're oh so felt in the heart, with tenderness, with warmth, with grief and, mostly, with the purest love imaginable.
William Dufris does a truly excellent job with his "dog(s)" voice/s and with the many special people in Toby/Bailey/Ellie/Buddy's life. I had a terrific, cover-to-cover time with this book. Made me ache, made me smile, made me think of all the amazing animals that have entered and left my life.
