This is such a special book to read. I read it twice all in one sitting. I still pick it up many days later to re-read it again and yes I still cry after each read. I just don't see myself not coming back to read this book over and over again in the future. The story really touches my heart and opens my eyes on the reality of how some pets live, and the circumstances of poverty stricken owners. Highly reccommended to all lovers of animal stories!
