First, there was Because of Winn-Dixie, then, A Dog's Life, and now Sheep. Dog stories that break your heart and make you want to rush to the nearest shelter and adopt one, two or maybe three, and bring them home to spoil them rotten. In Sheep, a brilliant border collie's adventures out on the road, alone in the harsh human world, gives us a different perspective on the life of a stray. From the Goat Man to the Circus to Raggedy Annie's house, the experiences of Shep (or Spot, Lucky, or any other name you'd like to give him) will warm your heart and keep you reading. In the end, I think Sheep may help us realize that we all have a need to wander a little before we find where we are truly meant to be.

Sheep is perfect for the dog lover, who enjoyed A Dog's Life and Because of Winn Dixie. A great read!
