Absolutely fantastic.  One of the best books I’ve read in a long time.  I don’t know how I missed Mowat’s books growing up, but I’m glad I discovered him now.  The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be is the true story of Mutt, Mowat’s own beloved dog.  Although Mutt was technically a dog, he certainly didn’t act like a dog.  Mutt’s exploits are legendary in the small Canadian towns where he lived, and Mowat’s descriptions of them are laugh-out-loud hysterical.  Mowat’s book is more than just a dog story.  He brings to life his boyhood in Canada, the adventures he shared with his father, and his love for and knowledge of nature.  I loved reading this book myself, and can’t wait to share it with my children when they’re older.
