I remember when I was in seventh grade, this movie came out. I saw it once, and then all I know is something too summarized and condensed I'm like "Where did the time went by so quickly?" We all wanted to at least forget about it at the end and let it slip aside, yet I was very curious to find out more once when I'm older. I never forgot not all endings are full of fluff with happily-ever-afters. One presidency had passed, my time came to finally read a book when all of a sudden Roxie had around a few months left to live and that Zellie was gonna die anytime soon. Their days of expiration were alooming us, but we'll never know for sure.

This book was indeed a more specific "true story" version of "Saying Goodbye to Lulu" except... most of the story took place as the prequel for twenty-four chapters straight - in other words, the entire life of a dog - before coming to the last few chapters.

On the guest star note, the current president we have today was on pages 130-131. I never forgot to write it down in one of my journals in mid-February.

Eight years have I forgotten most of the names of the people before my initial read as a college student. This book literally related to my life sometimes, but on the contrast: the author was the columnist whereas I am going to be a journalist. Can't wait to see "The Last Home Run" on Netflix!

If you want some serious fun with this book, go for it like I did!

This is a really adorable and funny book. I found myself snickering aloud at parts and my heart wept at some sad places.
