A Dog’s Life: the Autobiography of a Stray

A Dog’s Life: the Autobiography of a Stray

A Dog's LifeThis is one stray dog’s story of what life is like on the street. Born in a toolshed and separated from her mother and brother, Squirrel has to learn to fend for herself; crossing busy streets, staying warm, and fighting over the food in trash cans with other starving dogs. There are tricks to staying hidden, avoiding capture, finding food and places to sleep, tricks only a stray dog would know.  Squirrel shares her insight into this secret life.  Some of the things that happen to Squirrel are sad – and a little bit hard to read – but she continues to find her way in a world that doesn’t seem to want her. Take heart that there is, somewhere in the world, a human that needs a dog as much as Squirrel needs a real home. Author: Ann M. Martin

  2. I’m glad that you enjoyed “A Dog’s Life”. Have you read “The Incredible Journey”? That one is the story of two dogs and a cat that get separated from their owners travel 250 miles together – alone, lost and hungry trying to get back to their family. It’s a really good one too!

  3. A Dogs Life is a great book it tells a life of a stray and the truth of what strays go through in there lifetime it is also sad because young Moon dies and Squrriel is alone again but the ending is good she has a great turning point in her life
