Anyone who has ever been a pet parent knows that their furry children have quirks and eccentricities, and Toby was no exception. I sympathized with both Charmaine & her husband, and Toby, because you know he couldn't be happy with all that inner anxiety. Of course, as a reader, I knew they were going to keep Toby but as a person, I really applaud their decision. It would have been so easy to give up and I'm so glad they didn't.
This is the kind of book you read when you need a pick-me-up, and a reminder that sometimes the very best experiences in life come wrapped in hard-work packages.
A touching story that made me laugh and cry and miss terribly my own dog who went o doggy heaven last year.
If you like the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, this is Chicken Soup on steroids.
Full Life Potential
When Toby becomes a therapy animal it is heartwarming how many people's lives he touches and it becomes Toby teaching Charmaine lessons of life rather than the other way around.
Despite the current antics of my puppies, it was a great reminder for me of why I love them so much. So, if you're a fan of animal stories you should read On Toby's Terms.
I look forward to watching the movie and hopefully reading more books on Toby's antics.
