Butch was born in Switzerland where he spent his puppyhood before his humans decided to cross the ocean and start a new life in the Canadian Rockies. His incredible talent for getting into mischief is the direct result of Dave and Franzi's inability to show him who's boss, and ultimately, Butch ends up ruling the house. Butch's trials and tribulations include a bout with poisoning, a malignant cancerous tumor, and a massively enlarged heart. It is through these various ordeals that Butch teaches his humans the true meaning of hope, persistence, and unconditional love.
Often humorous, with many heart-wrenching moments, the uplifting story of My Hope Butch will have the reader rooting and cheering for the underdog canine and his ongoing quest for an extra bone.

After having read a sneak preview of My Hope Butch, I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the story. The subject, Butch, a yellow lab from Switzerland, goes through many medical trials and tribulations and is helped along the way by his owners. They do not always heed the advice and conclusions of the medical world, and go off searching for alternative medical methods to keep their dog alive. There are many humorous times, along the lines of 'Marley and Me', and some very gut-wrenching moments like the first chapter of 'The Art of Racing in the Rain". The ending is a happy one and that's all I can ask for. It's a good read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
