The story of Oogy is perfect for any animal lover who enjoys reading about the different ways animals, in this case Oogy, teach us humans many life lessons. While the story is mixed with challenges and humor, the reader cannot help but be inspired by the family’s love for this dog and, of course vice versa. The other wonderful thing about this book is that it is easy to read in varying time intervals without having to keep reading to find out what happens next in the way a suspense novel would require. It is more akin to a collection of short stories, all about the adventures of Oogy. A very enjoyable, heartwarming read which mixes in some humor as well as insight into the workings of a real family and how each relates to the family pet.
