It’s always so exciting when a book I love becomes a movie. A Dog’s Purpose is being turned into a movie. A Dog’s Purpose, written by American humorist W. Bruce Cameron, is an inspiring novel of a devoted dog attempting to find his purpose in lives of the humans he loves. A Dog’s Purpose spent 52 weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers list. It has been translated into 20 languages and is published in 29 different countries worldwide.
