    This book is every animal lovers heart in a written format. This book made me laugh, it made me cry, and most of all it made me so grateful for my 'fur children.'

    I am a big crying mess as I write this review. This is a sweet, very heart-wrenching story about a girl, Lauren, and her very big dog, Gizelle, that is her dearest companion and friend, and making the best of that big, beautiful dog's last days. The book was well written and really kept me captivate...

They ate leftovers from our dinner, they slept in our beds, and they rode next to us in the car to school everyday. They...

    I received a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway.I wouldn't necessarily call this book original; it's just more in the vein of literal thousands of similar dog memoirs. That being said, it's extremely well-written, comedic and picturesque, a story of a woman and her beloved pet as they experie...
