In a nutshell: satisfying and exciting story of a dog’s life | This short novel tells the story of golden retriever Bailey, from his days as a puppy up to maturity. When he runs away from his first home he’s lucky to be rescued from a hot locked car by a woman who gives him to her son, Ethan. Before long Ethan and Bailey are as close as only child and dog can be and we come to know both of them really well, though Ethan’s behaviour will always make more sense to human readers than it does to Bailey. A rivalry with another young man leads to a violent and shocking conclusion when Bailey’s love for his owner proves life-saving twice over. Like all the best animal stories this dog’s eye view of the world is completely convincing and will enthral readers. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

A Dog's Purpose - Bailey's Story by W. Bruce Cameron

From W. Bruce Cameron, author of The New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel A Dog's Purpose, which is now a major motion picture!

When Bailey meets eight-year-old Ethan, he quickly figures out his purpose: to play with the boy, to explore the farm during summers with the boy and to tidy the boy's dishes by licking them clean (only when Mom isn't watching). But Bailey soon learns that life isn't always so simple - that sometimes bad things happen - and that there can be no greater purpose than to protect the boy he loves.
