A Dog's Purpose is told in first person from the dog's point of view. It was truly fantastic and I simply could not put it down.
The story begins with "Toby" discovering his new life as the puppy of a stray. He learns about feeding and how to wrestle his brother and sister. Soon enough, he is captured by a dog hoarder and kept in "the yard" When the women is caught by the authorities Toby is taken to the pound where he is deemed unadoptable. Sadly, he is euthanized. He then wakes up in a puppy mill where he is a puppy all over again. He remembers a few facts from his previous life which allows him to escape the puppy mill, but he is then captured by a man who nearly kills him by locking him in the extreme heat of the truck. Toby is rescued by a woman and then becomes "Bailey", Ethan's beloved pet. The story doesn't stop there, but you'll have to buy it, or WIN IT, to read more :)
I am so in love with this book. It made me look at my adorable border collie, Jetta, a bit differently. After reading the book I decided that maybe Jetta doesn't understand exactly what I'm saying, the way I'm saying it. I'm sure she has a different interpretation of what I'm doing or saying. A Dog's Purpose also provided me with some comfort in knowing that my childhood pet, Cosmo, may still be living though not with me. I like the idea of thinking that he has a purpose and being with me and my family was just a pit stop in his ultimate destination. I'm delighted to be a part of that journey :)
