THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN
I've read great reviews about this book, The Art of Racing in the Rain, by Garth Stein. Sounds like a heartwarming and insightful story about a dog and his best friend, so I can't wait to read it after little Beatrice Arthur is finished with it. She's outgrown all the children's books and have been begging me to find her something more challenging. Look at her, she's so excited she can't take her paws off of it.
