Loved this story from start to finish. It's a feel-good heart warmer of a special animal -- a smiling dog with a good sense of humor -- facilitating friendship, good morale and a healthier life for all.

As an animal lover -- I love these stories which show how much a non-speaking being can powerfully affect a human being and give reason to keep on keeping on.

It was a great book. I was captivated by it from the first paragraph.

I love this book it's my favorite and I place a hold on it and when it's ready I get to read it i now the characters it's opal and winne Dixie sweetie pie Thomas Gloria dump Amanda the librarian and more I learned from my teacher ms pasquits

I love this book so much. I want to read it again. But I dint have time for that. Now I want to watch the movie. I cant waitto see the movie. This book didn't really relate to but it was a good book. Maybe because I been living in the same house for 7years now.

"Gloria says that you can't hold on to anything. That you can only love what you've got while you've got it".
