If you want to imagine what your pets are thinking, you can get a good idea from this book! The internal dialogue of the three dogs and cat, is insightful, and best of all, hilarious. My nine-year old son, fifteen year-old daughter and I (and our own mutt) read it together. We were disappointed when it came to an end. Even now, weeks later, we still apply some of the book's phrases to our own animal menagerie. For instance, in the book, the dogs obediently go into the kitchen to find 'the snacks left for them on the floor by ourboy and ourgirl...' The passing of the oldest dog, though sad, is handled tastefully and gently, so younger children will not be traumatized. This is refreshing-lately, we've been reading some 'award-winning books,' that are horrible in their gore and trauma! Any age reader who is an animal lover will enjoy The BossQueen, Little BigBark and the Sentinel Pup. It's a nice escape from the hectic complicated world of car pools and video games...
