    Heartwarming Story

    This is a heartwarming story, told from a dog's point of view. You still have people in there, but once you get used to the fact that it's told from multiple dogs' point of views, it's really heartfelt. The story is endearing, and it makes you wonder if that's how it really is for dogs. You can tell that the humans' story has more backstory, which I'm guessing continues in Ms. Downs' Emily Dahill, CID series. Well-written, and the character development of the dogs was great. This was a short, fun read. Although it's technically a Christmas story, it would be good for any time of the year.

    Sweet story- great pet story

    Sweet, short story about a family of dogs and how they touched so many people's lives. Pet-lovers whether you have a dog or not will be touched by this story and you will be smiling by the time you are finished. There are two families in the book (human and dogs) and to mingle the two and hear both sides of the story being told simultaneously was s unique and fun storyline. People talk to their pets all the time and Downs put a voice to the dogs in the story answering the humans and also the dogs communicating with each other. As pet owners we all know that animals have their own way of communicating to each other and to include that in the book was a sweet touch. The family wants to help others and the dogs do too. As I read the book, there were times I was confused as to whether the animals were "talking" or the owners were talking but that was the only issue I had with this book.
