On the night before he is put down, Enzo, no ordinary dog, shares his thoughts on his life. Self-educated because his master leaves the TV on when Enzo is home alone, Enzo is not concerned about his life ending because he aspires to being human in the next one. He is a philosophical dog and has some wonderful insights into the human condition.
Denny, the race car driver, works hard at the skills necessary to be the best in car racing and the techniques he uses are also instructive for navigating life’s ordeals, of which he has many. This is not just another dog story. It is uplifting and intelligent and explores not only the mysterious relationship between dog and man, but also meditates on how humour, loyalty, hope, and a “dogged” determination can carry us through.
