A Dog's Purpose Chapter 10

By W. Bruce Cameron

Chapter 10

  • Over the next couple of years, Bailey realizes that no one plays with Todd anymore.
  • Guess everyone else grew out of the explosives-and-animal-abuse phase of childhood.
  • During the summer, the family still visits the Farm.
  • And on that Farm, the family has a new visitor—a girl named Hannah.
  • Hannah meets Ethan while he's playing with Bailey, tossing him a handmade toy called the "flip," which is a "cross between a boomerang, a Frisbee, and a baseball" (10.18). It can break windows from many yards away.
  • Mom, who came to the Farm without Dad that year, decides to go back home early.
  • Grandma and Grandpa drive her home, leaving Ethan home alone with Bailey.
  • That night, Ethan hears a weird noise in the house.
  • Ethan opens the gun cabinet and gets ready to investigate.
