"Eric O'Grey was 150 pounds overweight, depressed, and sick. After a lifetime of failed diet attempts, and the onset of type 2 diabetes, O'Grey went to a new doctor, who surprisingly prescribed a shelter dog. And that's when O'Grey met Peety: an overweight, middle-aged, and forgotten dog who, like O'Grey, had seen better days. The two adopted each other and began an incredible journey, forming a bond of unconditional love that forever changed their lives. Over the course of their first year together, O'Grey lost 150 pounds, and Peety lost 25. As a result, O'Grey reversed his diabetes, got off all medication, and became happy and healthy for the first time in his life. He started dating after being alone for fifteen years--and eventually reconnected with the long-lost love of his life. And Peety? His affection would lead the way on the doggie adventure of a lifetime. WALKING WITH PEETY is for anyone who is ready to make a change in his or her life, and for everyone who knows the joy, love, and hope that a dog can inspire. This is more than a tale of mutual rescue. This is an epic story of friendship and strength." --Jacket.

I really enjoyed reading this book, I didn't know what it was really about at first, I haven't read in a while but it gravitated to me for some reason. It was a sweet ride into the life about a man and a dog that saved eachother. Great for animal lovers, or people who need some motivation. It educated me in a way I never expected. Nice easy read.
