Some enjoy it, and some think it is odd. But a lot of people love a good story told from a pet’s (or animal’s) P.O.V.

I recently found an old notebook with a story I wrote back in 2014. It was a few months after taking in a neighbor’s dog. This dog’s back-story is a bittersweet one, which is why I had begun to write what I knew about the dog and gave it a little spice to make it interesting.

The story is fiction, but it is based on my dog’s life starting the week I began to take care of him, up until now, or his last few days. Whenever that may be. Because he is pretty old. I am surprised that he has lived this much longer since I got him.
