The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein.   

What an incredible book!  It was sweet,  tragic, funny, touching and poignant.    Anyone would love it, but ESPECIALLY dog lovers.  It's told from the point of view of the family dog.

Oh yes, my wife and I love the Enzo story. Garth Stein spoke at our local bookstore not long ago, but we couldn't make it. It's a very imaginative, sweet book. One of my faves.

I also loved The Art of Racing in the Rain. It was a very special book. I just ordered Always Faithful. My husband is a retired Marine and we both love dogs...what could be better. Here are a couple more I enjoyed. Jinky is irreverent laugh out loud funny. But a warning Jinky has a potty mouth. (After all he hangs around with those Hollywood types.)

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I expected to cry at the end of Marley and Me, but Always Faithful got to me, too -- not so much at the end, but when viewing the photos in the middle of the book and seeing the monument the author helped get built for the dogs who gave their lives on Guam.

I got this one awhile back and it's next on my list. Can't wait!

Beautiful Joe, an autobiography of a dog is a great book and the price is right!

I loved "The Art of Racing in the Rain".  I listened to it on audiobook.  The narrator gave Enzo the perfect voice.  I highly recommend this one.

What about "Where the Red Fern Grows" by Wilson Rawls?

It isn't available on Kindle yet, but it is a good story. It was one of my favorites when I was younger.
