First off, this is a MUST READ for all dog lovers. Big Little Life is a true story of the author, Dean Koontz, who gets a C.C.I. dog by the name of Trixie. You will know what kind of special dog these are when you read the book. you will fall in love with Trixie and also learn things about Dean Koontz that you did not know. The book moves pretty fast and I found it very entertaining. Enjoy!
