This is a fascinating story about the loss and love, and the hardships of growing older that we all must face someday. Where the straight seem insane and the sane might seem crazy, the comedy of this book is sweet while the sadness touches you and holds you long after you finish reading for the night. With this character driven novel, you come to know, to enjoy, and ultimately to miss the main character whether it be Sam Peeke or White dog. This beautiful story is a testament to family, and relationships, and ultimately to Terry Kay. A must read that touches you and leaves you with a true loss, but at the same time with true feeling and love.

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND

    This story is a testament to the meaning of true love and family. The characters are well-developed. This book has just enough detail to keep you reading, but it's quick and easy. Beautiful story about relationships. Loved the main character and the dog! Wonderful story! I highly recommend this book.

    A must-read for adult children with aging parents.

    A delightful presentation of the handling of a family with an aging member; in fact, in some incidents there are outright laugh-out-loud happenings, as well as very touching moments. I have read it twice!

    A story of loss and change.

    To Dance With the White Dog is an intriguing novel following one man through a lifetime of memories. Sam Peek a respectible tree farmer, devoted husband, and great father relearns that the simple things in life are some of the most important after all. I enjoyed this novel so much i went on to read a couple of oter titles by him.

    This is a story about grief, aging, love and family.

    This is a story about grief, aging, love and family through a mysterious White Dog that can only be seen by Sam Peek. It demonstrated a life-long love, natural process of aging and family relationship. You can taste bitterness and sweetness as you entered Sam¿s life. You can feel the tears in his eyes, loneliness in his heart and joys on his face throughout the entire book. The book is simple and easy to read. Once you start, you can¿t stop.

    Mercy Me!

    A must read for all generations of a family. There are lessons to be learned from the father, the children and those who love and treasure animals. If all families were to live their lives such as this family did, what a wonderful world it would be...

    A lovely tale of lifelong love

    This book offers an insightful view of human nature and relationships. For romantics, it is a beautiful story of love that lasted a lifetime - and beyond. It offers knowing and humorous insights on human nature and family dynamics. Especially for southern readers, it is exceedingly -- and enjoyably -- true to life.
