Worth the heartache and pain at the end. This book is so adorable. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Just take my heart, rip it out and step on it, why don’t you?
I don’t know why but I thought each character was really cute. I just fe I enjoyed the “chase” aspect of this book with the dog hunting the fox and the fox outrunning them all.

I also recommend it to anyone thinking about destroying a wilderness area in order to build bland, cookie cutter houses or strip malls.

The book starts with the hunting dog, Copper, as he and his master are enlisted by the police to find a missing man. If you are looking for a cute little animal story, more like the Disney adaptation, then I would recommend looking else ware.
In the latter part of the book, the world around them was changed by “Progress”, again described through the animals’ senses.
