My avid reading has taken a turn for books featuring dogs as key characters. One in particular struck a chord with me. Not only is this book all about a man and his dog, but the dog is none other than a schnauzer - he could be Pippy's long lost relative! Following Atticus is an inspirational story of the hiking adventures of a man and his dog in the mountains of New Hampshire. A must read for anyone who has been taught priceless and unexpected life lessons through the journey of owning a furry friend.
