This one doesn't seem like it's going to be the Marley-type story, and my wife has said as much. She read it first and she would not have put it in my lap so soon after losing our beloved Havana if she didn't feel it was uplifting.

Thanks, Phinz...I'll take a look at it.

You might like Conrad Richter's 'Ohio Trilogy' stories of the American frontier.

I will warn you. I know what's coming in the story (the same thing that took Havana) and it will probably upset me, but we have to deal with that every time we take another living being into our life as a companion, be they 2 or 4-legged.

Thanks for the tip Lizzie, I'll look into them.

About dog stories..I hate to cry when I read cuz I can't see. With a movie, seeing isn't so important.

I do have books to read when I want to cry. The end of Marley and Me is good for that.

I finished the book last night. I cried like a baby, but the rest of the story was so much more uplifting that it was worth it.

Now I'm reading The Maltese Falcon.
