Editorial Reviews

Barbara M. Hodges
I loved this little story about a dachshund named Biscuit. It made me laugh and cry. In so many ways I recognized my own basset hounds. The story covers Biscuit's entire life and is handled with skill and humor. Anyone who has ever loved a pet will enjoy this tale. I plan to read it again and again.

Author Darrell Bain amuses readers with the antics and adventures of his delightful dachshund, Biscuit. Written with an engaging tongue-in-cheek style, readers will almost be able to feel Biscuit's tongue on their check for a sloppy doggie kiss! The humor is genuine, as are these amazing anecdotes...What came through loud and clear was the author's love and wonder of his dog. Readers will feel this and be enriched.

Darrel Bain is at it again. This time we have the pleasure of learning all about the comedic antics of Biscuit, his pet dachshund. Or as Bain describes him, ¿six inches high, six feet long, has ears that drag the ground and likes to lick faces.¿ I¿m sure the description is pretty close, because fans of Darrell Bain know full well he isn¿t given to hyperbole. And if you believe that, you¿ll probably believe that this man who truly resides at Santa Claus Lane hates ice cream. Bain weaves tale after tail of the trials and adventures of raising a puppy on a tree farm in the wilds of Texas. He seemingly writes with a wink and a perpetual gleam in this eye, which is why the stories are fun to read. I wonder if Bain develops a Pinocchio nose whenever he starts putting his ideas down on paper. But why shouldn¿t the reader believe Biscuit created his own vocabulary, can honk a truck horn, or had a wild run-in with Viagra? Fact or fiction? I¿ll leave that for you to decide. The reader will come to love and laugh at a little dog he or she will never meet. In the process however, Bain reminds us that life isn¿t all rosy, and can bite you when you least expect it. The harsh realities of life play a minor role in this entertaining little book, and leave an impression that lasts a tad longer than the light-hearted theme. But whoever said life would be all ice cream and doggie biscuits?

Biscuit is a little dachshund that exemplifies what we all love best about our canine companions. Doggie Biscuit follows this charming canine character throughout his entire life story. Writing with a tongue-in-cheek style humor, author Darrell Bain lays out a remarkable story of love and adventure (Biscuit may be the only dog in the world to have received a traffic ticket!) that will completely engage the reader's full and rapt attention from first page to last. Indeed, it would not be unexpected for readers with canine companions of their own to see in Biscuit some of those special times and qualities that is to be found in their own dog's behavior. Not to be missed is a very special section of Doggie Biscuits that deals with Biscuit's extensive vocabulary and is complete with his ability to communicate through, and respond to, an amazing list of words, phrases and gestures. A pure joy and entertainment, Dogie Biscuit is also a story that is thoughtful and universal in its appeal. Highly recommended reading!
