I saw this book at the library under the new books. I hesitated getting it because I thought it was going to be a sad story about an old dog dying. The cover said “The Simple Joys of an Old, Happy Dog”. But I could not resist that face of the dog on the cover and checked it out! The book is about how the author decides to make his own life happier and take lessons from Lucy his old dog. Lucy loves people, making new friends, doesn’t judge the “uglier” dogs, and lives for the day! This book was so funny! It reminded me of A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson. The author had me laughing out loud. The good thing about this book is you do not have to be an animal lover to read it. The author writes about funny stories throughout his life. I would 100% recommend this book for everyone! You are guaranteed to laugh!
