The Art of Racing in the Rain...

I just finished another book off my shelves.  Amazing.  What a good story, makes me want to get out there and get me a dog.

Enzo knows he's different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul, he has educated himself by watching TV and listening to his master, Denny Swift, an up0and-coming race car driver- Art of Racing in the Rain (Front Flap)

Enzo is convinced that he will come back in his next life as a man. On the last night of his death, he looks back on his life and the struggles that Denny had. The loss of his wife Eve and the custody battle for his daughter Zoe, against Eve's wealthy parents. Enzo knows that he did his part to reunite the family and has the hope that Denny can still become a champion race car driver.

Any book about a good dog has got to be a good read, Dear Irene! I love my new dog, Rizzo. He's my pride and joy. xoxo

This book was on my favorite list the year I read it. It made me want a dog again too.

Interesting concept from a different view. We just saw A Dog's Purpose, which is from the dog's view also. A trend perhaps? Thanks for the review.

I'm officially out of jars...

Got up early today, (not so early), and could smell my peaches ready for processing.  I also had a whole  basket of peppers ready to go as ...
