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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
