genius The tone is conversational and authentic I can really imagine that this is exactly how a dog sees himself within a loving family Cosmo is wise, humorous, devoted and loves doggedly I ll let Cosmo explain the last one himself There is a word I ve learned in my twelve years doggedly It means with persistence and full effort Humans attribute this to a dog s stubbornness our refusal to give up chewy sticks, the way we freeze in the doorway when it rains But really, it s the way we love, with our whole hearts, no matter the circumstance I vowed to protect Max and my family doggedly, for the rest of my life.Cosmo has been bought as a puppy by the family, shortly before the birth of their first son Max, who has a heartfelt bond with Cosmo, each being the other s champion and best friend One of the aspects which really engaged me in this story was how Cosmo reminisces about his life with his family, recalling many humorous and heart warming moments This makes the family break down in the present of the book all thepoignant Cosmo is told by the children s Uncle Reggie to Protect their hearts And he does so, with all his heart I fell in love with Cosmo for a two main reasons his devotion and sensitivity towards his family, and especially to Max, which is wonderfully depicted and, his sharp, witty observations which permeate the story, lending it many humorous moments Humans can learn many lessons from Cosmo s honesty and wisdom, and from his love of old movies and dancing Indeed, dancing is pivotal in his attempt to save his family and avoid separation from Max The courage, perseverance and devotion shown by Cosmo, despite his own afflictions due to age, is genuinely touching My favourite quote, which I think will resonate with many is I do believe that, with the right human by your side, it s possible to leap fearlessly into the unknown Will Cosmo, with his dancer s soul, be able to save his family Will he become a movie star Will he remain with Max, his best friend Will he defeat his nemesis the sheepdog So many questions, so wonderfully answered in this exceptional story, with the most uplifting, hopeful ending Thank you to Nosy Crow for an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest opinion You are a very good dog, Cosmo A very good dog You are a very good dog, Cosmo A very good dog I am going to find it incredibly difficult to review this, because it is no exaggeration to say that I now consider it an absolute favourite It is the story of an elderly golden retriever called Cosmo, and his quest to stop his family falling apart, as well as to learn to dance and eat lots of bacon The book is from Cosmo s perspective and it s such a joy to read his observations about humans and other animals are hilarious and he s just one of the loveliest characters I ve ever read I could I am going to find it incredibly difficult to review this, because it is no exaggeration to say that I now consider it an absolute favourite It is the story

to read his observations about humans and other animals are hilarious and he s just one of the loveliest characters I ve ever read I couldn t love him any, and it s high praise when I say that he reminded me so much of Wilbur from Charlotte s Web and that I loved him evenI also adored the different members of Cosmo s family, but especially Max their bond is indescribably beautiful and Uncle Reggie I couldn t have been rooting for Cosmo and Max in the dance competitioneither I found it such a fun plot to follow and Cosmo s absolute passion for dance and his determination to do well for Max made me so emotional that I spent most of this in floods of tears Reading this felt like being wrapped in the comfiest blanket in existence and receiving a cuddle from a golden retriever at the same time, and I highly recommend it 5 5, but I d give Cosmo every star in the solar system if it were an option Cosmo is such a good dog Teaching us to love, doggedly, and dance, often. One of the most adorable books I ve ever read Read it if you need to smile. An absolutely gorgeous story Cosmo is such a loyal, beautiful soul This book has stuck in my heart and mind and whenever I see a Golden Retriever now I think of Cosmo However, be warned if your kids read this and you don t already have a dog, you will almost certainly be pestered for one This is an adorable story told from Cosmo s point of view I haven t read many books where animals are the narrator, but this one felt fresh and new.Cosmo is a sweet dog, who is fiercely loyal to his family, but especially to Max He s an older dog now, but the writing and the way he recalls his days as a younger pup give this a quite a feel good tone.The writing is simple, as you would expect from writing from the perspective of a dog, but at the same time, Cosmo s understanding of human behavi This is an adorable story told from Cosmo s point of view I haven t read many books where animals are the narrator, but this one felt fresh and new.Cosmo is a sweet dog, who is fiercely loyal to his family, but especially to Max He s an older dog now, but the writing and the way he recalls his days as a younger pup give this a quite a feel good tone.The writing is simple, as you would expect from writing from the perspective of a dog, but at the same time, Cosmo s understanding of human behavior makes you stop and think There are complex issues mixed in, like anxiety, shyness, family dynamics and divorce.I chose to read this right now because of some chaos at work, and it was the perfect choice, because I was really able to escape into this story I won this via Librarything Giveaways An absolute must read for all children Told from Cosmo s perspective it is a real heartfelt story about how he tries to keep the family together through dance His observations of humans is spot on and very funny at times A great read. This will rocket to best in class among canine autobiographies you know it s authentic because as a memoir it s less about about Cosmo s own life and times than it is about his family and what he s had to eat He s a good dog and tells his story well.
