My Special Inseparable Friend, is a truly unforgettable story about fur and friendship, for both young and adult readers. The story hopes to inspire and help us appreciate the unconditional and always faithful love and loyalty a dog has for its master. It shows that regardless of difficult circumstances, a dog just sees the good in us without asking anything in return. Likewise, this book shows us that, in life, nothing is permanent and that many times separation is necessary. We must make painful decisions for the good of those we love. At the same time, it teaches us about the cultural differences of a traditional Mexican family through descriptions of customs and values. Also, it gives insight into the way Mexican people bind together to help each other in major tragedies, as in the 1985 massive earthquake in Mexico.
