Looks good! It’s going on my list. I’ll probably pick it up as an Audible book as I have lots of credits. So back at you. This is an Awesome dog story. Awesome. Do not confuse it with the children’s version by the same author with a similar title. You want this one.If you want a good dog read, I recommend this one:
I've heard this recommended here before (possibly from you) but I never pulled the trigger. It's on the way now, thanks.Looks good! It’s going on my list.

I have a yellow Lab and a chocolate Lab. The yellow guy will be 10 years old in the Spring. Stanley is sweet, loving, absolutely too sensitive and worries about everything, but his biggest fear is that he will never be fed again (As if!). He is also a terrible wimp, although he is bigger and older than his younger half sister, he will not assert himself over her, except she knows better than to try to eat out of his food dish. She will always occupy the favored couch in the house and Stanley will stand next to the couch and moan until my wife or I will tell her to go to the other couch so he can have the favorite one. Stanley can be very stubborn and refuses to retrieve anything, unless it's to eat it. Bella, my chocolate girl is 3 years younger. She is very easy going, obedient, compliant and well behaved, except for always occupying Stanley's couch. Bella has mastered the 'head down, looking up at you with the big brown eyes' trick. She could melt a glacier with that look. Oh, she is also afraid to swim. She'll happily walk in shallow water but she won't swim. I have one Lab that won't retrieve and another one that won't swim. Kind of embarrassing actually. They are the best!24 years of Labs here as well, all of them chocolate, the first of whom was a double of the vid star. We overlap them, so the older one can break in the rookie and they seem to be getting better as we go. The first one was a great dog, and broke my heart when he went, but was by no measure a good dog, despite my best efforts. He was good at some things that the others haven't been, superb at heeling off leash when he badly wanted to go sniff the other dog, but was terrible about staying put at the foot of a ladder while Dad went up to secure a hatch or halyard. Luckily, I was a lot younger then, so carrying a 90 lb dog down a ladder was feasible.
They are all different, and I love them all, even when they are being Labs, of whom it has been said " They can carry an egg without breaking it across the yard, then chew through a chain link fence".
