In between reading MGoBlog and staring at my calendar hoping it'll move closer to Sept. 4th simply under the power of my thoughts, I found time to read the book, A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron (apparently the author of 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter).
I've noticed many people on the blog have dogs or are dog people in general (pics, videos, MGoStalking), and having just finished the book I must say that if you love dogs, you have to read this book.
I won't ruin it by saying too much, but it's a view of the world from a dog's perspective through his/her various rebirths, as well as the search for his/her purpose in life. It will make you laugh, but be warned: it also has the power to many even the manliest of men (not claiming that I am, but hey...) cry. If anyone else has read this book, feel free to chime in.
