“The Dog Behind Me” is contemporary fiction on a short leash to fantasy, featuring a rather resolute four-legged friend. It’s a reincarnation, dual perspective tale told by man and his best friend. Belisle’s fifth novel barks attention to a fresh take on “A Dog’s Purpose.” The synopsis …Jake Belvedere grew up without the father he desperately needed. High school diploma in hand, he reaches out to his father, who reluctantly takes him into his Brooklyn apartment. Jake returns home six months later however, his father having cut the cord, ending their relationship. The 18-year-old struggles to understand. Shortly thereafter, Jake’s father dies of a heart attack. Jake is distraught, spiraling downward out of control, only to land on the cold, unforgiving streets of Calgary. Seven years pass. A black Labrador retriever happens upon Jake. The stray dog is the reincarnation of his father — a fact all too obvious for the Lab, but lost upon the young man. The two begin a journey of survival and a second chance at the relationship they never had.
