The star of this book is the kind of dog who is so devoted he would follow his person to the ends of the earth. This story is the sequel to A Dog’s Purpose, in which this dog had many lives caring for his boy, Ethan. When he is Buddy in his later years of life, he meets Ethan’s granddaughter, a sweet girl named Clarity whom he protects around the Farm. When he passes and is reborn, he finds Clarity again and works hard to find and be with her each reincarnation. This dog is her constant companion and guardian for her whole life.
I really enjoyed this book because it was very well-written with so much amazing detail. It’s interesting to read because it is written from the dog’s point of view and helped me see the story in a new perspective. This book is great for laughs and is heartbreaking every time the dog dies. It shows how incredibly loving, caring, and loyal dogs are to their people.
