Thought I meant Freddie didn't ya? No I finished the book Roam by Alan Lazar that I won back in December from Bocci's Beef. First I have to say that I have never read this type of book before as I tend to be a Stephen King, John Sandford kinda girl. That being said, I actually loved the book! Nelson is a half beagle, half poodle who stole my heart! I don't know if it's from the cover picture or what but I pictured a male version of Sophie (From Sophie's View) in my head for Nelson. We all know Sophie is an adorable Labradoodle!
This book touched on all my emotions making me sad, making me angry and making me smile. Your heart goes out to Nelson who through all of his years hardships and heart aches manages to seek out the one true love he lost, his human! It comes complete with links to music which was written by Alan for specific parts in the book. I really think this is a Walt Disney movie waiting to happen; without the doggie sex scene of course. (hee!hee!)
I finished Roam 4 days ago and find I am still thinking about it which tells me it was a great book. The book was very well written. Alan Lazar is not only an accomplished composer but has proven he also has a talent for writing stories. If nothing else this book will make you want to hold your furry friends even closer and be so thankful you have them! It definitely puts you in that "awwwe" awareness mode! Roam is definitely worth the read!
Freddie update: Tempatures have dropped blow freezing again and the lawn is frozen. Freddie is once again allowed to "ROAM"! Okay, only in our yard!
Yes, that is slobber on his ear!
