"A sweet story of unconditional love in good times and bad. Underlying theme gives us encouragement to keep on keeping on in bad times and being true and faithful to those we love and those who love us. Love a story told through Luke's eyes.....has made me think....and wonder too what my sweet four legged companion is thinking when I look deeply into hers.
