Gulliver is a high-falutin' lhasa apso much accustomed to a refined life of premium dog food, classical music, antique furnishings and annual jaunts to Paris with his master, Professor Rattigan. But the posh life comes to a crashing end when Dr. Rattigan decides to marry a woman allergic to dogs and Gulliver is (in his mind) unceremoniously dumped with the doorman's noisy family in hardscrabble Queens. Big and small degradations transform the once snooty Gulliver into a humbled, less narrow-minded Gully. Eloquent writing and vivid characters. This reminded me of the inner transformation in "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane." ( )

Gully's the luckiest dog in the world: he has a perfect owner who lives in a fabulous apartment and who spoils Gully with yummy foods and outings in the park. But when his owner meets a woman who's allergic to dogs, the owner has to make a choice. Guess what? Gully is given away to another family. Will he be able to escape? Will he end up even trying?

Cute, from the dog's perspective, shows what is really is important in life -- being valued and loved, not the things we own or how rich we are. A light read even for a child. ( )

I don't usually like animal books since so many times the ending is that the animal dies. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, got a lump in my throat for his trials and tribulations, and gave my rescued dog an extra hug. ( )
