As everyone knows who follows my blog, you know I am all about the DOGS! I review A DOG’S PURPOSE before it was released and this is a quick review (sorry SPOILERS!) but I think if you watch the trailer, you get the idea. I have a real book review HERE – This book is for anyone who loves dogs or was ever owned by a dog.
Starts reading the book, OMG I LOVE THIS — It has a dog that speaks to me.
Wait, OH NO! the dog dies, but then everything is ok and the dog is back.
Happy Dance. WAIT – not again. Husband hands me tissues…sympathetically “The dog died again?”
OMG – throws the book across the room — ugly crying — very ugly crying but soon it becomes tears of joy. Starts hugging dogs.
The Movie version.
Basically, the story is about a boy meets dog, then dog meets girl, boy loses the girl and then the dog. The dog comes back in another life and reunites boy and girl.
Really this is one of the best DOG books ever. Schatze approves. After watching the trailer, I think it is going to be a perfect movie as well. I am happy to say that the book did become a perfect film.
Now, how did the book compare to the movie? Well, they nailed all of the important parts. If you want to want to be specific there were a few areas that had to be condensed for the story line but it all works. I actually only teared up twice during the movie version. OK, I admit it there were a few times that I needed a tissue. I thought that the movie version did justice to all of the dog’s portrayed.
I was surprised that Tino really captured my heart – sort of a couch potato who keeps the hope alive by just being there:
This is perfect for the whole family to enjoy. My husband who didn’t read the book but suffered through me reading it thought it was really well done and enjoyable. I think it is safe for young teens. There is some kissing and a little violence but overall pretty clean.

No, I haven’t read A Dog’s Purpose. This is one book I am unfamiliar with. The movie sounds good, the book sounds better, and I’ll probably cry a lot whichever one I finally get to. Thanks for the review!

Ryan Biddulph says
I heard the movie was awesome and quite moving Mary so I know the book would be as awesome. And yeah I figured the dog died, AAHHHH! Rips your heart out. Dogs are miracles. They show us how to love unconditionally. Like little Buddhas wagging around, showing us how to love, how to accept, how to be compassionate. What phenomenal beings.
We just left a house sit in Thailand. 2 months with the cutest French Bulldog. The owner showed us a picture a few hours after we left; out of all the places he could have slept, Yoda curled up on blankets that the homeowner was going to wash. He is missing us already. These guys know love like few humans do.
