The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be by Farley Mowat
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A heart-warming biographical of a boy and his remarkable dog. One of the charms of this book is the view into a bygone era for boys and dogs. We did this as a family read-aloud and enjoyed it. Whenever I do a read-aloud, I am also an inline editor. I had to skip a thing or two in this one, but overall a good story.
I am not generally in for the “heart-warming” reads. I don’t think it will really be spoiling anything to warn you ahead of time that nothing lasts forever. As a boy and his dog progresses to a man and his dog . . . you probably know how these things go. If that is too sad for you, just skip the last chapter and go on your merry way.
