Editorial Reviews

Yvonne Zipp
Tea and Dog Biscuits offers good-natured storytelling, judicious use of self-deprecating humor and a genuine love of its subject.
—The Washington Post
Oxford Times
This is a delightful little book written with feeling and a deep understanding of the way a dog's mind works.
Your Dog Magazine
Uplifting true story of how the author and his wife became involved in dog rescue and re-homing. There are plenty of tears and smiles along the way.
