Oh, I loved this book! What a fun idea and a great book for anyone who loves their dog like a family member. My dog had some of the same mannerisms as Trixie including the "speaking," the eye-brow looks, and all of the lovable qualities. I lost my Halley-dog to a tumor on her stomach a little over two years ago and reading this book brought back so many loving memories of her. I cried like a baby at the end because I remembered my family's heartbreak when we lost her. What a great way to celebrate a life that had so much impact on so many others!
