About the Author

Tricia O'Malley lives in Milwaukee with her husband Josh, and their much doted-upon dogs, Briggs and Blue. On a typical day you may find her dreaming of the next plot line in her books as her dogs distract her with their toys. She loves the entrepreneurial life, is strongly resistant to the cubicle-world, and has an unhealthy penchant for shoes.

As a dog lover, I thought I was going to really enjoy this book; however, I was greatly disappointed. It's a true story that would have been better off told in a short newspaper article. There wasn't enough for a BOOK. A dog is stolen. Then he miraculously returns. NOTHING happens in between. Each chapter is the same as the last: owner puts up missing dog fliers, owner receives phone calls in response to said fliers. Then hangs more fliers. Receives more calls. Fliers. Calls. Literally nothing happens. And we never even find out in the end who took the dog or where he was. I hate to say it, but this book was just plain boring. Don't get me wrong, I am SO happy that Briggs was found, and I wish all humans loved their pets as much as this! But there's just not enough of a story here to make it "book material", in my opinion.

Wonderful story about a couple who's beloved Boston Terrier was stolen from their yard. I finished it in 2 days because I couldn't put it down!

By far, the best book I have read in a long time. You cannot put this book down! If you are a dog lover and know what your dogs mean to you will go on this journey with them. I laughed and cried and could feel the emotion in everything they went through. Take this ride... you will be glad that you did.

Not enough story to hold this together, but then, it is a non-fiction tale.

If you like feel good books or are fond of animals, this is the book for you. The author takes you through a maze of feelings and thoughts when her dog is stolen from her back porch and she works against incredible odds to find him. The author is a gifted storyteller and the book leaves you with the feeling that you really can accomplish what you set out to do if you just keep believing in it and working toward it. Highly recommended.

Excellent story about a stolen dog and the lengths to which his owners go to find him.

Although I thought this book was very well written I found it to be a bit predictable. I enjoyed the way the author could really paint a picture but the plot needed more to it. It was a good leisure read with little suspense or surprise.

Excellent, I could not put it down. Read it in 2 days and had my husband read it.

Aside from all the overt racial assumptions, sweeping generalizations about minorities and people of urban areas, i found this book to be a snivelling white whine about a woman whose Boston terrier ran away, and who spends the better part of the book searching for her dog under the assuption that the nearby gang bangers took it because that is how they operate; finding bait dogs and being poor and violent and stuff and junk. She imbues this mind numbing narrative with a heroic light, mostly cast on herself and a couple of more privileged white wax automatons who have nothing better to do with their lives than to *risk* their presumptuous, lily white butts looking for her pet in scary neighbourhoods. Of course, god is also cast as the benevolent helper, thinking of the woman and her dog while hundredd of others across the globe are being herded into mass graves. After pages of racist-lite commentary, the dog totters back on its own ... having obviously escaped the clutches of the looming urban scum on its own. Most ridiculous, deluded and empty book ever.
