            Bob is in the safe, loving care of Julia and her family. While he has a comfy bed to sleep on, Bob isn't a huge fan of this domesticated life. Is he losing his toughness? But then a horrible hurricane and tornado comes crashing in. Bob is stranded from Julia, and Ivan....well, Ivan hasn't been found yet. All of the sudden, there's that scent. The scent Bob remembered as a pup. The smell of his sister that he thought was dead. The smell of Boss. Venturing to find Boss, Bob learns the lessons of friendship, family, and forgiveness. Happy reading!
