    The Angelic Dog

    Ginny is truly a remarkable dog and this second story of her true-life adventures makes for heartwarming reading. Although there is some redundancy in the details, that will not detract from your enjoyment. You will laugh and cry, but most of all you will be entirely enchanted with Ginny and the wonderful cats who are lucky enough to live in Ginny's world.
