I just finished the book, "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein. Anyone that loves dogs will be mesmerized. Imagine a story told by a dog that includes formula one racing, a family under great stress, and toss in a little Zen. As much as I loved "Marley" this is definitely a flight or two above in IQ! At the end, the dog's description of his passing onto the rainbow bridge manages to be inspiring and hopeful. Please please read and let me know what you think! I am just in awe, I can only dream of creating something like this.
