Default Apparently every dog lover needs to read this

The art of racing in the rain.

Wife was told about it and has since made everyone read it. I'm about to start it myself. All I know is her and her mom laughed and cried a lot while reading it. We're on vacation and MIL finished it in 2 days.

After a time you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true...

I thought there was a library!

So the dog's name is "Enzo". And he's basically telling his life story.

Thanks for suggesting this book. I've been a dog lover all my life, so I will read it.
