 We were told to choose a book that represents ourselves.   
 It may sound a little weird but the book I chose was, 
"A Dog's Purpose" by W. Bruce Cameron.

  This is one of the BEST books I have ever read.  I very rarely give books 5/5 stars but I would give this book more stars if I  could. This book is the story of a dog who goes through many different reincarnations while trying to find out what is his purpose in life.  Each chapter is a different reincarnation. Some of the chapters are funny and others will break your heart. It really made me think about how we treat our pets and whether they are sentient beings with a soul. I've always felt that pets know and understand a lot more than we give them credit for.

Anybody that knows me will tell you I love animals (except opossums but that's another story for another time).  I especially have an affinity for dogs.  I know a lot of people say their dog is their child.  When I would hear someone say that, I'm ashamed to say that I would laugh to myself and say, "That's because they don't have real children."  That all changed when a fuzzy brown puppy came into my life and honestly, saved it. 

 I was going through a  deep depression but as soon as I picked him up and he put his paws around my neck, I knew I was going to be okay. I've had some good dogs in my life but nothing like Newton.  He has never growled at a person, he lets little kids love all over him and wants to play with every dog he meets. Heck, he's never met anybody he didn't like.  He was put on the Earth to love and to be loved.  He can't stand for any of us to cry. If he sees one of his family sad, he'll come up and give you kisses until you smile.  If you're sick, he'll lay in bed with you and won't leave unless you get up.  He's starting to get gray muzzled and would rather sleep than anything else but, he still stops and wants to love every person we meet as we take our walks down to potty.  I will never have another dog like him and I know for a fact that my dog's purpose in life was to show me how to love unconditionally.  He is truly a member of our family and is totally one of my children.  If I could love others even half as much as he does, I will know I've had a life well lived. ~ Laurie
