It is a heartwarming story and you really want them to find Huck. It just seemed to be a bit clumsily written to me. All of the street names and turns made me dizzy. Even with the map in the front and back of the book, it was difficult to follow. I also found it odd that for some people she met in Ramsey you got a back story, but not for others. Seemed a bit random.

This is a great book for doglovers, especially those who have survived cancer or love someone who has. It is also a testament to the kindness of strangers in small-town America.

Such a cute puppy.
Look at that face!
This story will have you in tears!
Anyone who is an animal lover will enjoy this book. It was a very simple, heart warming story to read. Nothing intellectual or complicated here, just the story of a family searching for their missing poodle. Interesting and easy going.

Great read. Great fonts and design.
