It has been a while since I have been able to sit down and enjoy a good book. I have four kids and reading isn’t something that I get to do very often. I was able to pick up a book recently and I wanted to tell you about it. The book is called The Wrong Dog – an unlikely take of unconditional love.
I don’t want to give away too much of the book, but you are going to love it. Whether you love dogs or not, you are going to love this book. I love David (the author’s) writing style. He kept me very captured the whole time. This book would make an awesome stocking stuffer or as a gift under the tree! Make sure you give it a read. I give it two thumbs up!
About the Story
From David Elliot Cohen, the multi-New York Times bestselling author of One Year Off, The Wrong Dog is the heartwarming, often hilarious, story of Simba II, a mischievous white Labrador puppy brought home by accident.
As he grows into an enormous ninety-pound dog with a huge personality, Simba cements the bond between two families and enriches their lives in countless ways.
When the family moves from San Francisco to New York, the author is charged with bringing Simba to the family’s new home, so he and his best friend, Erick, load the old hound into the back of a station wagon and set out on a 3,300-mile once-in-a-lifetime road trip across America.
With stops at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace; the Las Vegas Strip; Meteor Crater; the Painted Desert; Cadillac Ranch; Winslow, Arizona; Gallup, New Mexico; Graceland, and other all-American landmarks, this engaging and poignant volume chronicles an epic journey, the unconditional love between one dog and his family, and the vast and benevolent role dogs play in American family life. But most of all, The Wrong Dog shows us how the end of life can sometimes be the richest part of all.
