The Dog Walker

61irkx6Ed8L.jpgThe Dog Walker by Corwyn Alvarez. For dog lovers and those who like sweet, sentimental stories.  Benny is a mentally challenged young man who decides to drop out of school and start his own dog walking business.  He makes many friends, human and canine, and brightens the lives of those around him. Sweet, compassionate, loyal and honest,  he changes other peoples lives with kindness.  He makes friends with an assortment of interesting characters: the anorexic prostitute he falls in love with, the crazy neighbor who thinks he is still in Vietnam, a drug dealer, a retired lawyer he rides the bus with, and of course all the dogs he walks were the best characters. This is a short, cute and sweet little story.   It reminded me of  “The Curious Dog in the Nighttime,” and a little of “Forrest Gump.”
