i read the book about a year ago, and now, i want to read it again
Living two lives can't be real,
Living four lives is no good deal,
Living one is enough for me,
it's enough to make me see,
that when you live life with people you love,
it's the best life that came from above.

Yes I got Runt from the library and it was great. It's one of my favorite fiction wolf books. Although it was a bit harsh, unfortunately it's the reality for wild wolves, and plays a big part in why captive wolves live longer than wild ones due to injuries from prey, hunters, stranger wolves, and so on...
Anyway, it was a great read, especially how Runt finally got his wish of a proper name at the end. It could have been longer, but it ended correctly as I see. :D

I just started (and finished) reading the book Runt yesterday. ^^ Though it was fairly short, I loved it! Finally, a realistic wolf story that was told from a wolf's point of view.

I've heard a lot about this book and now I really want to read it; I haven't found it in any bookstores so I guess I'll just have to go ebaying because I'm really interested in it now^^

I'm sure you'll be pleased portia! ^^ In fact, I just finished reading the book for what I believe is my 5th time today. It certainly is a good read, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

(Also as a note, it can be hard to find; in fact, I've never had my own copy of the book and each time I've read it I was reading the library's copy.)

Yes well that's why I love ebay^^ that's where I get a lot of hard-to-find books and they're usually cheaper too. I have seen 'Runt' on there but I sort of got distracted and bought three other books instead, and I'm getting another on the weekend, so it may be a little while before I get it but I do indeed look forward to reading it. =D
