A touching account about the impact of an owner's relationship with a very special animal. It's about the journey as dog and owner make each other better and get the most out of life by mutual teamwork. It really excels in its sense of a life well shared.

Lou was obviously incredibly smart; any smarter and this book may have been an auto-biography.

The book is heart wrenching because one can see that no other dog could possibly fill the hole in one's life created when such a noble dog, and truly the author's friend of a lifetime, passes on.

It’s a story about the life of an owner and his dog. Shows the struggles that come with owning a dog, as well as the best times. Excellent book. Warning: It tugs at your heart.

I'm not sure if I like this book...Seems sorta like Marley and Me.

I wanted to like this book. I firmly believe that I had the best dog in the universe so I really wanted to like this book about the author's life with another "best dog in the universe." Unfortunately, I didn't learn enough about the author or the dog besides "Lou was a great dog" and "I love dogs" and "Lou was a great dog." I can't say exactly how, but I just think this could have been a better book.

More than your average dog book. This book is a true honor to the memory of a very special dog, and his relationship with his human, who paid attention to the details all along their journey. Lucky us.
