Most who know me know I love dogs. But few know the name I’m considering for my future dog. He will be big and oaf-like, a bull in a china closet, mischevious with a heart of gold. And he will be named Huck Finn. Blame the book nerd in me.
So it seems only fitting that I add the new book by the same name to my ever-expanding reading list. In the same vein as Marley or Dewey, Huck is the story of what happens to a community when a boy’s beloved pooch is lost. Never under estimate the power of a dog to galvanize a handful of would-be strangers.
Huck hits shelves in September. Be sure to add it to your list. And while we’re on the subject, does anyone have a Huck or a Marley? What are your pets’ names? Or, if you’re like me, future pet names?
