Larry Levin really writes his memoir about himself and his family and their eventual adoption of Oogy into that family so the book was not only about the dog, which I think helped with my enjoyment of it. I considered giving this book two stars because Oogy is cute, but no. The first chapter alone made me want to fall asleep. But the staff at the Ardmore Animal Hospital, which sees this kind of thing all too often, immediately noticed something special about the white dog whose left ear had been torn off, his jaw smashed, the side of his head torn open.

Oogy is my kind of dog! Heartwarming and redemptive, OOGY is the story of the people who were determined to rescue this dog against all odds, and of the family who took him home, named him "Oogy" an affectionate derivative of uglyand made him one of their own.
Levin talk in depth about his morning routine and how long the coffee should stay put and how long something it microwaved. Adopting any dog or cat and assimilating them into a home can present challenges. The fact that Oogy went through so booi in his life before he was adopted by the Levin family, is why I gave this book five stars.
Oog eyes are so deep, so intense that he practicall As I have long stated, I am a sucker for animal stories. Oogy sounds like a truly inspirational dog, and I think that his story will hopefully inspire others to give a dog who is in need of someone to love them a chance to be loved and to give love in return.

Bearing down on Oogy, my pencil marks were sharp and clear. This dog never gave up.
Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love
It's a happy little story about a rescue dog who lives. Oogy's eyes are so deep, so intense that he practically dares you to read his story and gook fall in love with him. This animal has become a constant friend and companion. Ooogy stole my heart and made it ache to hug him. Stories about fighting dogs that are inspirational are nonexistent.
Then years of memories of how special Oogy is. Just to see it in front of me.
Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love by Larry Levin
We need more animal loving people like that in the world. I also have to add that I wish more people wouldn't be afraid of pit bulls. Levin's style seemed a little to forced for me. Or what his morning routine is?
Refresh and try again. I'd get in my car and drive to the Levin's today if presented with the chance. First I thought this was going to be cheesy and it seemed like the dog story was just a gimmick because the author starts off talking about his own life for some time.
That should be done with every dog. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. A good hearted family adopted him and forged a deep bond with him. I wrap four strips of bacon in a paper towel and place them on a plate in the microwave, and then set the timer for three minutes and thirty seconds. At first, I thought this book was going to contain a lot about the author's family and history, and that he was going to tell a lot about how his sons came to him and about their lives growing up.
And yet reading those horrific descriptions made me appreciate Oogy all the more, and find him that much more awe inspiring and tenacious. I would have wanted to make his face look the same. This reason alone is why this book got two stars. I hope he donated oog proceeds of this book to animal rights charities.
After reading the chapter 'Signs', it became even more apparent that Oogy was simply meant for the Levins.
