My husband and I sat side by side at our lake house with our two labs at our feet while we read this book together. A poignant tale of man and his best friend growing older side by side, this book is sure to strike a cord with all who read it. The next “Marley and Me” with the sweetest of chocolate labs as the main character facing her world going dark. This book will touch the hearts of all who read it. You don't have to be a chocolate lab lover, a lab lovers, a lake house owner or someone on the verge of retirement to connect with this book but if you are this book is right up your alley. The perfect holiday gift for readers looking for a new book and a new outlook in the new year!
