After Colin Campbell went on a short business trip abroad, he returned home to discover his wife of many years had moved out. No explanations. No second chances. She was gone and wasn't coming back. Shocked and heartbroken, Colin fell into a spiral of depression and loneliness. Soon after, a friend told Colin about a dog in need of rescue - a neglected, 140-pound Newfoundland Landseer, a breed renowned for its friendly nature and remarkable swimming abilities. Colin adopted the traumatized dog, brought him home, and named him George.
Then everything changed. Colin was offered a great new job in Los Angeles, California. He took George with him, and the pair began a new life together on the sunny beaches around L.A. George became a fixture in his Hermosa Beach neighborhood, warming hearts both young and old. Meanwhile, Colin headed to the beach to rekindle his love for surfing, but when George encountered the ocean and a surfboard for the first time, he did a surprising thing - he jumped right on the board. Through surfing, George and Colin began a life-altering adventure and a deep healing process that would bring them both back to life.

My heart feels so warm and full!
The memories of the grandfather, who in turn, advocated healing as a loving unit between man and dog without even being there in the physical sense.
The first surf. It was so exciting that I held my breath as I listened.
He's a good reader in that he tells the story as if he is sitting across the table from the listener. He doesn't just read words.
When the author's copilot warmed up to George, and that the author chose loving care, and safety even though his friend wasn't that excited about it. I chuckled the whole time while picturing the author in the jump seat-peering over the dash. LOL!!
I felt really sad after Jane (Doe, as I called her in my mind) went away. That night in the basement, and in the porch felt so raw and hollow. Very gut-wrenching.
