I lOVE Oogy. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I LOVE OOGY! I had the pleasure of meeting Oogy at my local bookstore while listening to the author, Larry Levin, speak. Oogy is as sweet and loving and friendly as the author says.
There are really no deep and enduring lessons to be taught in the book, unless you dig deep. The most obvious lesson is that this family loves their dog and he loves them back. They are quiet animal activists and just all around normal people. To be sure, Oogy comes from very bad beginnings, but Levin doesn’t dwell on that and instead focuses on how the dog has increased the family’s happiness, which ultimately, I think any animal does.
I give this book four paws because we animal lovers gotta stick together!
