All dogs go to heaven... unless they have unfinished business here
Surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy after a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey's search for his new life's meaning leads him into the loving arms of 8-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog.
But this new life as a beloved family pet is not the end of Bailey's journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders – will he ever find his purpose?
Touching, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog's Purpose is not only the story of a dog's many lives, but also a dog's-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds that hold us all together, man and man's best friend alike. The story teaches us that love never dies, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on Earth is born with a purpose.

Comments about A Dog's Purpose:
OMG - this story had me laughing one minute and sobbing the next. If you have a dog or have had a dog you adored, you MUST read this story.
Speculative yes, but not in the usually understood sense. This is a heartwarming tale, touching and insightful, of a dog's eye view of life with his human friend. What was for cat lovers, Dewey A Dog's Purpose will be for dog lovers.
