This funny, sweet, heartfelt story chronicles the love between a dog—Monk Martin—and his human, and how the bond that grows between them becomes unbreakable; a bond of LOVE that is stronger than anything the universe throws its way. Monk ever so delightfully, cleverly, and poignantly narrates his own journey, and through his puppy dog eyes we experience his humorous and authentic view of his life—all shaped by the people and the creatures he meets along the way. Where the Dogs Go is a story for anyone who has truly loved a dog, or for anyone whose heart has ached when their best friend has departed this earth, and for anyone who really believes that the power of love is the best gift the universe has granted us.
Monk Martin is a special dog, or at least he thinks so! From the time he is born, Monk is fully aware of his prestigious pedigree and the fact that his inherent canine intelligence is somewhat superior to that of the average dog, and as it turns out, on equal par or at times superior to most of the humans he encounters along the way. As he grows and overcomes some of life’s challenges, he becomes a confident little dog who is well aware that his cuteness and charms will take him far in life. Monk is not afraid to use his intellect, good looks and charisma to get his way.
While he follows the path that a dog experiences, the one constant in his life, and the one force that propels him forward, is the love he has in his heart for his one true love, his human, his human momma, whom he affectionately calls Luv. Monk shares his adventures with Luv, how he sees the world, and the lessons he learns, all through his wise doggie eyes.
When his life path on earth ends, he goes on to create more magic and adventures in his after-life. In fact, some of his most valuable life lessons culminate in the second part of his existence, an existence which becomes an exciting journey, one he could have never imagined nor dreamt. Yet the biggest lesson he learns is that the essence of our existence and what matters most is the power of love, the gift from the heart, the one that costs nothing to give, as it is ultimately the most cherished gift we receive—the gift of Love.
