"Highly recommended for anyone (that's all of us) in need of inspiration."―Library Journal (Starred review)

"Oogy's story confirms what Dewey taught me years ago...that even a wounded animal tossed aside is capable of amazing joy if given love and respect by the human chosen to share life with them."―Vicki Myron, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World
"An incredible story about an unforgettable dog. Get ready to make a very big place in your heart for OOGY. Because you're going to fall in love with this dog. And, this book."―Gary David Goldberg, creator of Family Ties and Brooklyn Bridge and author of Sit, Ubu, Sit
"This is a story about what can happen when the worst in people meets the best in people and the best wins.

"At its heart, OOGY is a love story between a kind and generous man and an astonishing dog, reassuring in its affirmation that all the seemingly random pieces of life somehow belong together.

I'm heartbroken at reading what Oogy went through but Larry Levin (and all those wonderful people who do adopt shelter dogs especially the special needs and elderly dogs) came through for Oogy.... and writes about the wonderful things he and his family learned by adopting Oogy. I'm so glad for the goodness that came Oogy's way. (...just as I'm glad for all dogs who are adopted, given their forever homes and treated with kindness, love, encouragement and peace.)
This is a wonderful book, and highly recommended by me - a dog lover.
