Dog Gone: A Lost Pet's Extraordinary Journey and the Family Who Brought Him Home 

The title says it all.  This is indeed the story of a family's search for their six-year-old golden retriever, Gonker, who bounded off the Appalachian Trail and into the forest.  What the title doesn't say, however, is that there is an element of urgency here.  Gonker has Addison's disease.  If the family can't find him in 23 days, he'll die.  If you love dogs like we love dogs, you'll now HAVE to read this book just to find out what happened to him.

The Goodreads reviewers seemed pleased with how author Pauls Toutonghi related this true story, but be warned. If you read the reviews, you will find out how the book ends. SPOILER ALERT!

The book comes out today and is said to be a quick read, so you won't have to wait too long to find out what happens to Gonker.
