After a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey is surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy. Bailey's search for his new life's meaning leads him into the loving arms of eight-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures, Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog.

But this life as a beloved family pet is not the end of Bailey's journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders, will he ever find his purpose?

Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog's Purpose is not only the story of a dog's many lives but also a dog's-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man's best friend. This beautifully crafted novel teaches us that love never dies, that our true friends arealways with us, and that every creature on Earth is born with a purpose.

Nice story and the main character, the dog. But if you cry easily and have a soft spot for animals you might need to read it with a box of tissues handy. I’m not a crier and this got to me three times for sure and on the edge for a fourth. I am still glad I read it. Enjoyed the reader.

Well-read but full of cliches: the crazy dog lady, a boy and his dog, etc.

If you love dogs you will LOVE this book! ~ Sarah

Great audiobook for dog lovers. Be prepared for lots of chuckles and a few tears. A lovely read that appears to get right into a dog's mind,

If you love dogs, you'll appreciate them even more after listening to this! If you've been wanting to get a dog and haven't yet, this will inspire you to visit the pound. The reader is terrific, sounding the way a dog might sound if it could talk: friendly, accepting and undemanding. Lovely!
