    How can a writer write a story in 33 pages, thats worth reading. Not good. This dog barely got adopted and the next thing the family was preparing for his death. This story if you can call it a story (maybe a paragraph) isn't even worth 99 cents. Maybe B&N should have some guidelines for sales of their books for nook owners, 33 pages or less is not considered a book. 33 page story should be in the children's section at B&N.

    Good story

    Short story that gets right to the point. Makes you laugh the cry. I enjoyed it, as I'm sure all dog lovers will.

    Touching story but way too short

    This could have been a great book if it had been fleshed out further and all of the characters in the book, icluding the dog, developed further.
