Every dog has its day, so it was only a matter of time until Enzo, the soulful yellow Lab who narrates this splendid tearjerker, got his. Recounted from his deathbed, the pooch's tale is rich with quirky observations—many of them olfactory—and love for his human, a down-on-his-luck race-car driver. If you believe dogs know things—like when you need the comfort of their furry heads in your lap—this book is for you. Go fetch!
