Overview

This is a NOVELLA of approximately 24,000 words - 70 odd pages.

It's the first day of Ninna's job in the local animal shelter...and a dog is talking to her. Not just any dog...a fat, old, smart-alecky Basset Hound who says his name is Mosey.

She can't quit, she needs this job. And then there's the yummy vet who turns out to live across the street from her. He has a house big enough to hold a few animals - including the mouthy Mosey. With all this going on, she doesn't have time to worry about the rash of break-ins and the sense of being watched. She's too busy worrying that she's nuts.

When Ninna agrees to dog sit for the cute vet from work, she sees it as a trial at being a pet owner and a way to build on her budding relationship with the vet. For Mosey, this weekend means time to get to know each other.

For the stalker who's tracking Ninna's movements, it means...opportunity.

    What an interesting concept for this novella. I think that I would absolutely love it if it were me. It would be so cool to be able to speak with animals, especially the loved ones who are no longer with us.




    This was a quite well written and captivating novella. Mayer leads her readers to the conclusion through some interesting ups and downs rather than pulling and pushing them there. The characters were also quite well developed considering the story’s length. You got to know the 3 main characters quite well. However, at the end, I was left hanging on the status of the building relationship.




    As a whole, this was a very cute and touching novella. It really gave me a lot to think about and more than a little enjoyment on the way. It was a definite escape from reality as we know it, to reality as it could be.




    Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review

    Adorable, light suspense with a lovely romance and a touch of the psychic.  Ninna would never have taken the job with a vet if she had had any other choice.  She spent too much of her life dealing with the fact that she believed she heard animals talk to her.  Of course everyone knows that can't be true.  But life as often happens gets in the way of her intention of avoiding large groups of animals.  One good, make that great thing has come from this job; her boss is HOT.  When he asks her to pet sit she can't refuse even though that group of pets includes a basset that insists on talking to her.
    He is not her only problem either.  There is a burglar in her neighborhood and he seems to be focusing on her!

    I read this novella in the Must Love Pet's collection.

    It’s a Dog’s Life by Dale Mayer
    Ninna Bradford finally landed a job after being out of work for way too long. It’s working at a pet center where they have medical facilitites, adoptions and dog training. She’s never owned a pet, but surely she can learn about them. And the handsome young vet isn’t hard to be around either. If only the big old basset hound would stop talking to her. She’d been through so much counseling to stop the voices and now when she finally has a good job, she seems to be going crazy.




    A great story with a touch of mystery along with a bit of romance. Hard times have hit their town and someone is busy with breaking into the homes around her. And it seems he’s taken to watching Ninna. Maybe she needs to find a dog of her own, one that doesn’t talk to her and drive her crazy. Although, Mosey is starting to grow on her a bit.
