This is a unique story that is insightful and humorous even though the subject is about the closure of life. Julia is a Shetland Sheepdog (Sheltie) with a story to tell. The stories and chapters have many original facets. Life from a dog’s point of view certainly can give you a different perspective on ownership, breeding, the culture of humans and the bonding of humans and pets. I loved this book for many reasons: from the depth of the subject matter yet having the simplicity of a “dog’s” vocabulary, the culture changes of the years of the 60s and to life now. Julia’s insight into pets and the way they share their lives with us humans is something I see daily as a veterinarian. I believe the disappointments, fears, hope, and trust she experienced can be the same for so many dogs today. Their perspective of us depends on our treatment of them. She is an example of what positive people can do for a pet that just wants a bit of love. This is definitely a good read for anyone having a pet, wishing to have a pet or having had a pet. My staff loved the book, too!
