The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
A cute story from the perspective of a dog. At the end of his life, a dog (Enzo) reflects on the time he has spent with his owner and the trials they have faced together. The dog feels that, lacking only a human tongue and opposable thumbs, he is practically human.
The story is cute and dear to the hearts of dog owners. I enjoyed it because I would like to think my dog thinks as much as Enzo does.
