“Here was this dog with the business acumen of a Wall Street banker and the literary leanings of a Hemingway, and here I was with a story to tell.”

When a rescue dog named Duffy arrives in Heaven, neither limitless bowls of chow nor bottomless barrels of rawhide can take away the longing for his “folks” back home. Then he meets Rex, a literary easterner of the Boston Terrier persuasion, who encourages Duffy to write his life story. From a harrowing start in a hayloft, to a prolonged stay in a shelter, to his new life with an adoring childless couple, from puppyhood to neuterhood and beyond, Duffy relives his tale through the written word with the help of his new cultured friend. But how do two dogs—let alone two no longer even residing on earth—find a publisher?
