'Teaches the reader a wealth about the value of making human connections.' FORBES, 'THE BEST TRAVEL BOOKS FOR THE SUMMER' For fans of Marley and Me, this is an inspirational and warm true story about how the love of a good dog can help to heal wounds. When Rob Kugler returns from war because of injury he has not only given up a year of his life in service to his country, he has also lost a brother in the fighting. Lost in grief, Rob finds solace and relief in the one thing that never fails to put a smile on his face: his chocolate lab Bella. Exceptionally friendly, and always with a smile on her face, Bella is the friend Rob needs. But then Bella develops a limp. It's cancer, and the prognosis isn't good. Rob has a choice: either to let Bella go now, or amputate her cancer-riddled front leg and see what the next few months will bring. For Rob, it's a no-brainer, and instead of waiting at home for the cancer to spread, the pair pack their bags and hit the road. Life is short, but the road ahead is long and winding, and as they criss-cross the country Rob and Bella meet remarkable, life-changing men and women who are quick to make friends with this incredible three-legged dog and Rob finds a reason to really live again. A Dog Named Beautiful is a book full of hope, love, tears and laughter. Enjoy the journey.

    Rob beschrijft op zo'n open en oprechte manier over zijn ervaringen tijdens zijn reis met zijn hond, Bella. Ik kon het boek niet neerleggen en wilde steeds weten hoe het verder ging. Rob en Bella hebben me geraakt.
