A beautiful story about a dog and his bond with his human. I loved Buddy, loved seeing the world through his eyes.

A dog limping out of the bushes, a broken boy filled with anger soon found themselves as best mates. This was the dog’s Buddy’s story and how he waited for his best friend, never giving up hope, believing it in his heart that his best friend would be back.

My first book by author Casey Wilson, each word written by her had a wealth of emotion in it. The love between Buddy and Toby had me swiping my eyes frequently. The author had written a story so poignant that I read it with my heart in my hands. It bespoke of a bond far beyond the realms that we know of, a bond between two hearts.

I loved how both of them supported each other. Their love and caring for each other was palpable. Buddy’s support without judgment as only a dog could give, made Toby grow up and understand the situations.

Buddy’s insights about life caught my heart strings. They were clear and so true, his heart could feel more than I knew. He was sensitive and brave and was the only one who understood Toby completely.

I loved how the author made me long for a dog of my own. Everyone deserved a Buddy in their lives. A beautiful story which would stay with me for a long time, until the next book of the author.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

There are some things in life that only a dog can teach you.

A poignant, heart-wrenching, but ultimately uplifting novel about the unbreakable bond between a boy and his dog. Perfect for fans of A Dog’s Purpose, The Art of Racing in the Rain and Marley and Me.

In the farming town of Riverside in Washington, Toby Fuller is feeling more alone than ever. Nothing Toby did was ever good enough for his father, but he never expected his father to leave, to abandon him and his mother forever. He loses hope, until a scruffy golden retriever called Buddy follows him home from school.

Though he’s struggling to walk, Buddy matches Toby step for step, never taking his eyes off him, as if Toby is all he needs in the world. And from that day on Buddy never leaves Toby’s side.

Buddy shows Toby a loyalty that he has never known. But then disaster strikes and Toby’s life is changed forever. Will Buddy be able to give Toby the strength he needs to carry on?

  2. This book sounds so moving! I can’t read books about pets (or watch movies) without finding myself sitting in a puddle of my own tears. Great review!

    1. Oooh yessss… GIN, one day I plan to have one… I have never come across unconditional love from a dog, though I have seen it. So the heart longs…
