Started Reading The Art of Racing In the Rain last night

Started reading the kindle version of The Art of Racing in the Rain for no particular reason last night, although it has been a book I’ve been told I should read for several years.  Finished 5% of the book before I got sleepy and turned out the light.  So far, the dog is old and nearing the end of his life.  His owner is now a single dad, and the dog has been with him since he first met his wife, had a daughter, and the wife passed away from illness.  The man loves car racing, and the dog too now loves it, and reflects on the 1993 Grand Prix which was won in the rain, and how his owner is good at racing in the rain because the key is to forget the past and just race in the moment.  We learn the dog may be nearing the end of his life, but looks forward to it because he doesnt’ want to be a burden to his owner plus knows from a documentary that after his dog life he will be a human, and can’t wait to be human with their amazing tongues, which allow them to chew their food and to form speech.  To be continued…
