Having been compared to the well-loved Marley and Me, A Dog’s Journey is the story of Buddy, a dog who thought he had found and fulfilled his purpose, over the course of several lives, in helping his beloved boy Ethan.

On the farm, Buddy watches over Ethan’s granddaughter, curious baby Clarity, trying to keep her out of mischief as he begins to realise that Clarity is in need of a dog of her own.

And then Buddy discovers that he has a new destiny.

Reborn, he’s overjoyed when he is adopted by Clarity, now a vibrant but troubled teenager.

When they are suddenly separated, Buddy despairs.

With her selfish mother and an unpredictable, obsessive boyfriend, Clarity’s life is threatening to spiral out of control.

Can Buddy find his way back to her in time?

This is a moving story of unwavering loyalty and a love that crosses all barriers which asks whether we take care of our pets or if they really take care of us.
