You Lucky Dog
What do you do when you're attending your own funeral but can't tell the love of your life that you're there, perfectly alive? Your wife doesn't recognize you because you look slightly different. Well, more than slightly. You're now a dog.
You Lucky Dog is the unlikely love story of Jake and Emma, a young couple thrown into a very unusual situation.
Jake and Emma appear to have everything going for them. A young married couple, they live with their dog in the leafy suburbs of Los Angeles. But after a horrible accident changes the course of their lives forever, Jake finds himself alive but living outside his body, and in the body of his dog.
What follows is a hilarious and heartwarming tale of misplaced identity. You Lucky Dog explores the mysteries of life and death, and the enduring power of love, in a heartwarming story for animal lovers and all lovers.
This is a cute and charming read. Dog lovers may agree that if you got a second chance at life that it would not be bad to come back at a dog. I know I would not mind as my dogs are very well loved. In fact, I talk to them as if they are human.
What I liked is that Emma embraced the idea that Jake really did come back as their dog. She had a freak out moment in the beginning but who won't. Yet, I had a fun time going through the journey and adventures with Emma and Jake. Also, I liked getting to know how Emma and Jake met in the first place.
You could say that everything was more fun from Jake's point of view. You Lucky Dog is a witty, fun, and light-hearted read that will put a smile on your face.
