Have you ever wondered what your dog was thinking?
Meet Bill. He's a big, affectionate Labrador mutt who lives with his master Vinyl and the missus at the Donegal Golf and Country Club. Rescued by his owner after escaping a puppy mill, Bill is a bit of an oddity among all the other purebred dogs: Emma, the miniature poodle, Hotspur the loyal border Collie, and Wolfi and Stanzi the fearless and courageous dachshunds.
Bill spends most of his days hanging out with his doggy friends and trying to obey all the rules that the missus has. But when his master's granddaughter Ruby shows up, things suddenly go from good to bad. Ruby has it out for Bill, and she'll do anything to get her way.
Told from a dog's perspective, this heartwarming, insightful, and emotional story of Bill and his four-legged group of gutsy companions will have you understanding life from a dog's point of view--and believing in the power of kindness.
