Staff Reviews


Gizelle is the kind of dog we all want: interesting, loving, loyal. And she is a cherished member of the family. Gizelle and "Fernie" grow together and share such a connection that her subsequent illness inspired a bucket list. A tearjerker! — Shirley Cagle

Description


The playful, epic adventure of a 160-pound English Mastiff and the twentysomething girl who grew up alongside her--Marley & Me for a whole new generation.

Lauren Watt took her 160-pound English Mastiff to college--so of course after graduation, Gizelle followed Lauren to her first, tiny apartment in New York. Because Gizelle wasn't just a dog; she was a roommate, sister, confidante, dining companion, and everything in between.

Together, Gizelle and Lauren went through boyfriends, first jobs, a mother's struggle with addiction, and the ups and downs of becoming an adult in the big city. But when Gizelle got sick and Lauren realized her best friend might not be such a constant after all, she designed an epic bucket list to make the absolute most of the time they had left.

Bursting with charm, this unique, coming-of-age story of a girl making her way through life is a testament to the special way pets inspire us to live better, love better, and appreciate the simple pleasures. Gizelle's Bucket List is the humorous, poignant lesson our pets teach us: to embrace adventure, love unconditionally, and grow into the people we want to be.
