Content descriptions

General Note:
This is a middle-grade novel adapted by the author from: A dog's purpose : a novel for humans (published by Forge Books in 2010).
Summary, etc.:
When Bailey meets eight-year-old Ethan, he quickly figures out his purpose: to play with the boy, to explore the Farm during summers with the boy, and to tidy the boy's dishes by licking them clean (only when Mom isn't watching). But Bailey soon learns that life isn't always so simple--that sometimes bad things happen--and that there can be no greater purpose than to protect the boy he loves.
