Point of View
This story has a very unique point of view. First person dog. I believe this is possible; after all, Dolly, my miniature Australian Shepherd, can talk just as easily as the hero in this book. She lets me know when it's time for a walk or time to eat dinner, she also tells me when it's time to play soccer. She is quite good...perhaps better than I am when it comes to chasing the ball. I do kick higher, though, but she is a canine Pegasus when called upon to catch the ball. So, I can very easily imagine our hero speaking in the first person. I wonder what secrets he will tell?
