Searching for his purpose over the course of multiple canine lives, Bailey is reborn as a golden-haired puppy after a tragic death as a stray and shares a loving bond with young Ethan before he again dies and starts over.
Bailey, this novel's narrator, is not only a dog--he is many dogs. Reborn again and again as a puppy, growing again and again (when's he's lucky, at least) into a faithful pet, Bailey eagerly strives to learn his doggy purpose--except, of course, when he isn't too busy sniffing butts and rolling happily in carrion. W. Bruce Cameron's lovable novel features perhaps the most inspired insight into the psychology of canines ever created in fiction. The result is hilarious, goofy, heartwarming, and surprisingly tragic--A DOG'S PURPOSE is a must-read for animal lovers everywhere.
