If you’ve ever had a pet, you would have, at least once, come back home after having a bad day and said to it, ‘I wish I was you. You’re always so happy!’

In the book, we are taken through a journey of enlightenment inspired by a dog who turns out to be a real life coach, a guru, whose way of living is simple and most fulfilling.
The author, in this book, has collated a set of remarkably easy‐to‐follow life principles which we all can use for a more enriching experience. And who better to guide us through it all but this handsome little ball of cuddles— Skottï!

This is the remarkable story of one dog’s search for his purpose over the course of several lives. More than just another charming dog story, A Dog’s Purpose touches on the universal quest for an answer to life’s most basic question: why are we here?

Surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy after a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey’s search for his new life’s meaning leads him into the loving arms of eight-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures, Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog.

But this life as a family pet is not the end of Bailey’s journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders if he will ever find his purpose.

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, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.

A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron

 

Marley and Me by John Grogan

The heartwarming and unforgettable story of a family in the making and the wondrously neurotic dog who taught them what really matters in life. John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wiggly yellow fur ball of a puppy. Life would never be the same.

Marley quickly grew into a barreling, ninety-seven pound steamroller of a Labrador retriever, a dog like no other. He crashed through screen doors, gouged through drywall, flung drool on guests, stole women’s undergarments and ate nearly everything he could get his mouth around, including couches and fine jewelry. Obedience school did no good-Marley was expelled. Neither did the tranquilizers the veterinarian prescribed for him with the admonishment, “Don’t hesitate to use these.” And yet Marley’s heart was pure. Just as he joyfully refused any limits on his behavior, his love and loyalty were boundless, too. Marley shared the couple’s joy at their first pregnancy and their heartbreak over the miscarriage. He was there when babies finally arrived and when the screams of a seventeen-year-old stabbing victim pierced the night. Marley shut down a public beach and managed to land a role in a feature-length movie, always winning hearts as he made a mess of things. Through it all, he remained steadfast, a model of devotion, even when his family as at its wit’s end. Unconditional love, they would learn, comes in many forms. Is it possible for humans to discover the key to happiness through a bigger than life, bad-boy dog? Just ask the Grogans.

Racing in the Rain: My Life as a Dog
 by Garth Stein

Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

Have you ever wondered what a dog is thinking?

Every dog loves to chase cars, but Enzo, this novel’s singular narrator, longs to race them. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul. He has educated himself by watching extensive television and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver. Through Denny, Enzo realizes that racing is a metaphor: that by applying the techniques a driver would apply on the race track, one can successfully navigate the challenges of life. Enzo relates all that he and his family have been through: the sacrifices Denny has made to succeed in his chosen profession; the loss of Eve, Denny’s wife; the custody battle for their daughter, Zoë. And Enzo comes through heroically to preserve the family, holding in his heart the dream that Denny will go on to be a racing champion with his daughter at his side. This tween novel has been adapted from the NY Times bestselling The Art of Racing in the Rain.
