Soldier Dog by Sam AngusThe best novel Ive read in ages! If you love dogs this is the book for you. Please dont be put off by the war theme. I have no real interest in war books, and chose it solely because of the dog theme.
I read it over 3 nights, as I found it very hard to put down, and cried at least twice each night. It left me loving my own dogs even more. Even though I read this a few months ago, I still regularly think about this book and how it affected me emotionally. This book will stay with me forever, and constantly remind me of that special relationship between human and dog.
I would definitely read this again, and have recommended it to everyone I know.
