A poignant and unforgettable tale of love loss and moving on with the help of one not so little dogRocky's husband Bob was just forty two when she discovered him lying cold and lifeless on the bathroom floor and Rocky's world changed forever uitting her job chopping off all her hair she leaves Massachusetts reinventing her past and taking a job as Animal Control Warden on Peak's Island a tiny speck off the coast. This book was kind of weird I think the author had a pretty good idea for the main plot of the story a widow who is grieving for her husband rescues a dog who is grieving for his owner However it seemed like she was trying too hard to make the main characters seem realistic by giving them faults and making them uirky and instead she succeeded in making them come across as somewhat mentally unbalanced I had a really hard time connecting with any of them Ultimately the story that should have been touching what with the relationship between the woman and the dog and their saving each other ended up being a little disjointed and even disturbing at times I still can t uite get my mind past what she did with her dead husband s ashes In my opinion the only character that had any redeeming ualities was Cooper the black labrador retriever and I did appreciate the fact that a couple of the chapters were from his point of view
