A Dog's Purpose Chapter 23

By W. Bruce Cameron

Chapter 23

  • Ellie burrows into the rubble to get to the live person. She barks, alerting Maya to the person's whereabouts.
  • In the wreckage, Ellie accidentally splashes into some sort of chemical that burns her nose.
  • Back home, Maya keeps Ellie's nose medicated with a cool cream.
  • When it's time to get back to work, it's discovered that Ellie can no longer smell. She'll have to retire.
  • Some good news, though: Al proposes to Maya, and she says yes. We smell a wedding.
  • Oh, sorry, Ellie. Too soon?
