Review Excerpts

"You'll love this inside look at a canine.... Wilson's steady, sure voice will stay in your head as you look at your own dog.... The metaphysical ramifications may have you chasing your own tail." ---AudioFile

"This book is a classic. A beautiful, uplifting, tenderly told, frequently funny, and exquisitely moving story." ---Iris Dart, New York Times bestselling author of Beaches

"The most accurate window into a dog's mind I have ever encountered. I couldn't put it down.... I feel like I have been waiting my whole life for this book." ---Dina Zaphiris, host of Animal Planet's Petfinder

"A book for all age groups who admire canine courage, Cameron also successfully captures the essence of a dog's amazing capacity to love and protect." ---Publishers Weekly

"A Dog's Purpose convinced me that...W. Bruce Cameron was once a dog. How else could he so poignantly detail life, love, and loyalty from the four-pawed point of view?" ---Victoria Moran, author of Living a Charmed Life

"Marley and Me combined with Tuesdays with Morrie." ---Kirkus


After a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey is surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy. Bailey's search for his new life's meaning leads him into the loving arms of eight-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures, Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog.

But this life as a beloved family pet is not the end of Bailey's journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders, will he ever find his purpose?

Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog's Purpose is not only the story of a dog's many lives but also a dog's-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man's best friend. This beautifully crafted novel teaches us that love never dies, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on Earth is born with a purpose.
