It is one of the most touching stories! Enzo, a philosopher dog, is sometimes more human than people. One of my favorite books!

One day I was walking down Bernerd st and spotted this book on a sales table at mosaic books. As soon as I picked it up I was intrigued by the title and thought without hesitation, this is a must read.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story narrated from a dog. There was a lot of emotion involved in this story. Sadness and happiness to see the family go through so much and still come out good in the end..
Excellent Documentary on the history and beliefs of Scientology. The film traces the movement from its initial beginning to the juggernaut it is today. A must see for anyone contemplating on becoming a member.
A tale in which Enzo, a loyal family dog, tells the story of his human family, how they nearly fell apart, and what he did to bring them back together. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs - he thinks and feels in nearly human ways. He has educated himself by watching extensive television, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.
Enzo knows he is different from other dogs' a philospher with a nearly human soul (and a obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television and listening carefully to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up and coming race car driver. Now in his twightly years, Enzo finds himself thinking back on his life with the Swift family, reflecting on all he has learned about the human conditions and how life, like racing, is about so much more than simply going fast.

There is no dishonor in losing the race. There is only dishonor in not racing because you are afraid to lose.
