My Dad My Dog by Rebecca Warner is the heartwarming story about a daughter who brings her Alzheimer's-stricken dad from the comfortable Crestview Assisted Living to the home that she shares with her husband David and Nick, their big black Labrador. Rachel Morgan knows that there will be complications in adjusting to the new arrangement but she never expects that her dad would want nothing to do with Nick. And as she cares for her dad physically and emotionally, she finds out that her now neglected dog has dysplasia and is probably suffering from arthritis. Rachel has to find a way to care for both of them and transform their troubled relationship into one of loving companionship.

Rebecca Warner's My Dad My Dog is a beautiful story about how a daughter copes with illnesses and the prospect of losing loved ones. The story unravels in an assisted living home and quickly brings us to the complication of a former mailman who has had bad experiences with biting dogs, now faced with the reality of living with one. Joe is suffering from Alzheimer's disease and this certainly complicates things but his daughter Rachel is determined to make the last days of his life as comfortable and loving as she can, and this is true for the black Labrador Nick as well. I certainly like how the story develops with realistic dialogues and vivid descriptions. Author Rebecca Warner writes with a high degree of coherence so that it is a delight to follow the journey shared by an ailing old man and an aging black Lab.
