Bruce Cameron chats with my family about A Dog’s Courage, forest fires, Best Friends Animal Society, and so much more in this timely & topical read

By Leslie Lindsay  ~WRITERS INTERVIEWING WRITERS|ALWAYS WITH A BOOK~ #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author W. Bruce Cameron Since the publication of #1 New York Times and #1 USA Today bestseller A DOG’S PURPOSE over a decade ago, Cameron’s books have earned praise from the likes of Alice Walker “amazing…wise” and Temple Grandin, “I could not put it down,” inspired three hit movies (which Cameron and his wife, Cathryn Michon, co-wrote the screenplays for).

I laughed, I cried, I nodded my head knowingly as I read through each story, from Dr. V’s early “nerd days” to vet school, first clients, early motherhood, and beyond.

In the end, it’s the dogs that make us better humans. Dr. Vogelsang is the founder of the website Pawcurious.com, and her writing has been featured on Yahoo! …
