W. BRUCE CAMERON is the New York Times bestselling author of A Dog’s Purpose, A Dog’s Journeyand The Dogs of Christmas. He lives in California.

This is the remarkable story of one endearing dog’s search for his purpose over the course of several lives. More than just another charming dog story,A Dog’s Purpose touches on the universal quest for an answer to life's most basic question: Why are we here?

Surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy after a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey’s search for his new life’s meaning leads him into the loving arms of 8-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 emotional and hilarious 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 moving and beautifully crafted story 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.

    This is a wonderful story about one dog who is reborn multiple times as a different puppy who fulfills many purposes but ultimately seeks his hihgest purpose. It is a warm and inspirational story that is often funny and sometimes even sad. It's entertaining to hear the story told from the dog's point of view and his unique take on the world as he discovers new things and how they're perceived by a dog. Some of the passages are hilarious as the dog describes his confusion when his owner isn't training him consistently... truly educational and enlightening for anyone trying to train a dog. So that's what they must be thinking if we do it wrong! Don't miss this book if you're a dog lover!
