FOR THE LOVE OF HOSS, although fiction, is based on the life of a real dog, as seen from his eyes. It will make you happy and it will make you sad. But most of all, it will show you love and loyalty. Due to many twists and turns in his life, Hoss has difficulty finding his forever home. Will he? Find out in his heart-warming story of the loving, loyal Hoss.
Hoss is a black lab who wishes to share his story. In the events of his life, he shows the contrast between loyalty and indifference. Although he had no control over his own life, he continues to show love and goodness. Many people touch his life as he goes from one experience to another, but there is one person he will never forget - Dillon. He went to live with Dillon's family as a very young puppy, and though they were separated by Dillon's harsh father, his love for Dillon never wavered. No matter where he was or who he was with, his thoughts always went back to the happy days he spent with the young boy he loved with all his heart and who loved him just as much in return. Hoss will make you happy sometimes and Hoss will make you sad. But no matter what his situation Hoss remained kind and loving and loyal. He teaches us that dogs are truly "man's best friend," and that we can learn much from our own dogs.
