aa2So there is a movie coming out called A Dog’s Purpose. I’ve seen the trailer a few times now and can’t wait to see it. While doing some research, I discovered the upcoming film is based on a bestselling novel, A Dog’s Purpose: A Novel for Humans by W. Bruce Cameron, so I decided to check it out in preparation for the film. Well, what I saw in the trailer for the movie – a story told from a dog’s point of view about how one dog has many lives and touches many others – was gloriously fleshed out in the book and makes me want to see the film even more. Seriously, a story about a dog and how they bring joy into people’s lives? How can it go wrong?

About A Dog’s Purpose: A Novel for Humans by W. Bruce Cameron: “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, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.”

I guess I am certainly not alone when it comes to loving dog and thinking that they are truly a gift from the heavens to help ease man’s burden. I love this book and I love that there are people who want to tell these types of stories and share it will the rest of us.

A Dog’s Purpose: A Novel for Humans by W. Bruce Cameron is available from Amazon and other fine booksellers.
