    This was another I had on a shelf for many years before reading it The photographs were stunning the stories from a wide variety of authors less so although I did enjoy the twist at the end of the Saki tale Louis

    I’m going to be honest I only read this book for Mountain Time because Mr Keller said we had to pick one off the shelf and read it during reading days and this one was the shortest one I will admit I am not a dog person They don’t really interest me all that much but I picked this book anyways This book is set up so every chapter is about a different dog The chapter is usually told by the dog but some of them were told by the owners I think this book kind of gave me a new perspective of what it would be like to be a dog I think this book kind of tries to explain why dogs do things or what they’re thinking But the truth is I’m pretty sure we’ll never know any of those things I think this book is perfect for people who love dogs or who want to learn about them Sometimes this book could be very hard to understand because of the language that was used in some of the chapters I think in some of the chapters they were in different time periods and in places with different accents which is probably why I found it so hard to read As I kept reading this book I kept getting interested in each dogs story because none of them were ever the same or written in the same way Some of the stories were interesting then others One of the stories I found to be really interesting was one about a woman who cheats on her husband and then leaves him in the end but the dog is the only one who knows about the affair I guess it kind of made me think about how people think they’re safe to do whatever they want when they think no one is watching but the truth is someone usually is Whether its a dog or another person This book definitely gave me a different perspective about what its like to watch life from the outside
