    If you’re looking for a great book about animals,

    Sirius de Soum de Gaia was born, along with two sisters and four brothers, to two of the best show dogs in history and has always been told to keep his head high, regardless of anything that might happen. It is quite hard for Sirius to do that when his master gives him to a family that doesn’t want him and brings him to an S.P.A. refuge. After several weeks at the refuge, Sirius’ brother, Stratos, comes; Sirius is overjoyed. Unfortunately, just a few weeks later, Stratos is put down, and Sirius is sent back to live with his breeder. Sirius thinks that this life is better than being in the S.P.A., even though Sirius is kept away from all living things except for cats and chickens. Sirius is content until he hears the news that HE is going to be put down. Will he survive? And if he does, will he ever be happy again? Opinion: Someone to Look Up To is a very moving book about the trials of puppyhood. It has excellent imagery such as “skies so blue they dazzle, snow so white the glitter bursts against your closed eyelids, mountains dancing in the winter sunshine, dancing all the year round.” You are invited into Sirius’s world as Jean Gill describes the vivid feeling of the first bite and many other moments. If you’re looking for a great book about animals, you have found it! Enjoy! Reviewed by a LitPick student book reviewer Age: 11

    Someone to look up to

    An excellent story and quite different. A real tearjerker but heartwarming all the same.

    A Must Read for All Dog Lovers

    Jean is our author; Sirius is her Pyrenean Mountain Dog. So who is writing this book? Is Jean Sirius, or is Sirius Jean? This is a story written in a dog’s voice from a dog’s perspective. As told through all five senses, it captivates the reader from the very first sentence. Being a special pedigreed puppy growing up in the Pyrenees, Sirius teaches us what it means to be chosen by humans. He learns that what he wants is not always the way life evolves. Sirius tries to change human(s) behavior, but sadly, sometimes he is left alone in a place he has not chosen. After reading Gill’s wonderful, heartwarming story, I look at my dog with total new respect, and let her run as much of our lives as she chooses. I will be gifting Sirius’ story with friends.

    From a dog’s point of view.

    What an interesting read about life from a dog’s perspective. Really made me think and realize that everyone sees thinks from their own point of view. Some parts happy, some parts downright heart wrenching but such a good story!

    Life Through The Eyes Of Syrius The Great Pyrenees

    Gill's first hand narrative from Sirius' the Patou's (Great Pyrenees Dog) view re-affirms many beliefs I have held myself after being master to a one and a half year old Pyr named Sophie who had two previous masters. What we do, especially if we don't understand the nature and instincts of a particular breed can and do cause scars and behaviour problems. Gives a positive mention to Behaviourist Trainer Michael Hasbrouck. It is heartbreakingly realistic in its exposition of various toxic dog owners, what living in limbo in a S.P.A is like and what even some very reputable old world breeders can be like.
