There’s something special about dogs, and the ones with the most personality are the ones that we usually love the most. But have you ever wondered what’s going through the head of that ingeniously disobedient darling of yours when you look at him? Cindy Blanchette has, and that’s what motivated her to turn the life of her beloved Australian Shepard Doully into a novel told from his point of view. Here’s a brief synopsis of the book:
If you have ever loved a dog, this book is for you. It is based on a true story about the author’s dog, Doully, an Australian Shepherd who came into her life as an eight-week-old puppy. He was adventuresome and mischievous. The story is told from his point of view, which is quite different from his owner’s point of view.
