Have you ever wondered what life would be like from a dog’s perspective? Every now and then I may have wondered “what in the world was she thinking” when my furry friend did something really naughty. But I must admit I’ve never really pondered about the way she viewed the world and the events around her for any real length of time.
My eyes were opened wide to that precise concept after reading A Dog’s Purpose written by W. Bruce Cameron. His is a heartwarming story of a dog who is reborn several times. Each new life offers a detailed view of what a dog’s life would be like in different circumstances. From the heart wrenching life of a stray puppy captured by an individual who truly cares about strays, to a fun and happy life with an 8-year-old child, then on to being a heroic search and rescue dog, and finally as a black lab that combined all his talents from previous lives to fulfill his purpose in life.
