I don't know if this has been covered, but this is a fantastic book. I got it for Christmas and is a MUST READ for everyone that loves their pets. Especially if you have a lab.

I Lost my 12-year old yellow to a tumor last fall, if you guys remember and I have an almost two-year-old yellow that is also a GREAT dog. Reading this books takes me back to both of them and even a little of my childhood. It is a cleaver and fast read.

Pick up this book and you will laugh and cry -- many times.

I almost exclusively like fiction, but this book is awesome.

Dahitman44,

I agree - what a great book!! I was in Target last week and saw a version of the book for younger readers.

I read it last year, and you are right, it was a great read.

I found myself laughing so much and yep even a little teary at the end. If you have ever owned a lab, you can relate to almost every single thing in this book.

Seems like every other paragraph I am telling my wife something in the book. She finally told me not to tell her anymore abecause she is going to read it and I am driving her nuts.

Well, that is my job.

I have also read it. Funny how destructive they can be! My roommate is reading it now and I'll probably read it again once he's done with it.

A movie? That is pretty cool.

It will be interesting to see if the movie can be as good or better than the book -- because you know what they say ... book is always better.

I just picked up this book on the recommendations posted here. I will be reading it soon. I read the overview on the cover and it sounds hauntingly familiar to what my wife and I went through 3 short years ago... Looking forward to a good read.

You will love it. I am rationing the book just a few pages every couple of nights. A LOT of fun.

I am over halfway, and I laugh out loud -- bus the wife until she starts reading it.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
