    To Each Other We Belong What a beautiful, mesmerizing, and completely heart warming story I found myself just staring at all the beautiful pictures of this precious child and precious pup before I even started reading the book The pictures alone tell a unique one of a kind story and then when you turn the page there are these perfect little sentences that capture each picture perfectlyThe look on the puppy s face and the way he responded to the kids so quickly convinced us that we had met To Each Other We Belong What a beautiful, mesmerizing, and completely heart warming story I found myself just staring at all the beautiful pictures of this precious child and precious pup before I even started reading the book The pictures alone tell a unique one of a kind story and then when you turn the page there are these perfect little sentences that capture each picture perfectlyThe look on the puppy s face and the way he responded to the kids so quickly convinced us that we had met our newest family member We decided to name him Theo.The readers learns that Theo is a rescue pup and that just goes to show you that calm, loving puppies do not necessarily have to be bred from expensive breeds Jessica writes about this special pup and how he divides his time between all the children and basically knows each one s schedule and is there for them when they need him This just warms my heart Animals feel just as much as we do and this one special pup has found his place in the world in this precious family that is the Shyba s I loved this book and loved how the mother portrays the closeness and the precious relationship between her beautiful son and his one of a kind pup Each picture is so special and shows so much of Theo s personality I will have to say that my most favorite picture is the Cheek To Cheek one How preciousI really hope that Jessica Shyba continues to capture these two as they both grow and shares their journey with the world Theo and Beau have a long life of fun, wild adventures ahead of them and I can t wait to follow their journey with themhttp curling up with a good book.bl
