My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Endearing, humorous and as much a story of family as of a pampered rooster named Buddy. The story was touching, sweet, and comical. It often had me laughing aloud. Recommended for fans of memoirs and animal stories.
“I never knew joy and sorrow could be so intricately entwined” (p. 161).
“Me defending Buddy. It was the start of something odd” (p. 181).
“If women were a mystery to me at my advanced age, take it as a fact that girls were a total enigma” (p. 229).
“Say this about that bird, his timing was impeccable” (p. 241).
“…I was about one more set of paws from completely cracking up” (p. 249).
