If you have a dog you love, this is a must-read. It made me tear up, remembering my best friend Leia.
Meet Astrid, and her dog Eli. They’ve been friends since Astrid was born. As she gets older, she realizes Eli is too, but a lot faster. Astrid decides to put together a bucket list, before it’s too late. Hers – Eating spaghetti and meatballs at a restaurant. Reading books together. But Eli’s made me tear up – the only thing on his list – spending time with Astrid. This is a lovely book.
