    An Awesome Aussie Book! (Australian Shepherd that is!)

    Mistaken identity stories are always fun, but this one takes a whole new spin on the classic concept when Champion Australian Shepherd, Spiritsong's Lucky Talisman of DeMitri (call her Tali)-a true maven of the Westminster show scene-finds herself pitted against the challenges of a slew of ranch-oriented antagonists, a possibly nearsighted kitten and a completely ruined pedicure. The tale of Tali, told from her very own and very opinionated point of view is fast-paced, witty and whimsically fun. I read it in one sitting and was looking for more!

    Although SHOWDOG SINGS THE BLUES is a companion piece to Devin O'Branagan's Red Hot series (Red Hot Property and Red Hot Liberty) this was the first one I read from the group and it works just fine as a stand-alone. This is an author who knows her storytelling and certainly knows her Aussies. I'm looking forward to reading more about Tali as well as the human characters briefly seen or only alluded to in this book!

    Okay, I'm a sucker for dog stories. Have been all my life. And even though my taste in canines runs toward mongrels (we've got two), I've met enough show dog folk to understand them, at least a little. The show *dogs* themselves are another story. That made Devin O'Branagan's novella especially enjoyable.

    "Show Dog Sings the Blues" is a pleasant tale told from the dog's perspective and showcases a true love of animals, especially the domesticated variety. It also showcases farm life, something that urban readers should find both interesting and educational. I think younger readers will be particularly pleased with this tale and its gentle humor. I look forward to sharing it with my grandkids.

    This story of mistaken identity between a beautiful show dog, Tali and a ranch dog, proves truly entertaining from beginning to end. I love how the story was told from the perspective of the dog. Devin is an amazing author whose books I can never wait to get my hands on and read as fast as I can! I highly recommend all of her books.

    Attention All Dog Lovers

    And I'm *not* a dog lover, but I could appreciate how impressively Devin O'Branagan conveys her canine protagonist's point of view. A clever--surprisingly believable--story.
