"The Spiritual Journey Adventures of Russell The Dog" For Lola's Blog Tours

This book isn't like any I have read before.  And I really enjoyed that. It is written from the voice of a canine named Russell the dog. The canine is spunky, sweet, loving and determined to live his best puppy life. His journey is full of danger, hope, love, and the will to survive and that's just the first chapter.  Russell's journey is meant with friends that help guide him, people included that  teach him about life and what is beyond the other side and he takes a piece of their hearts along the way. Russell's life and legacy is a story that is close to me because I have had the privilege and blessing  of having a Russell canine in my life, not once but currently twice. I know that Russell's story will touch any reader who loves canine's as much as me. It was a great honor to read about Russell.
