5.0 out of 5 stars Great story October 15, 2011
By Steph
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a must read for a dog lover. The story is heartwarming and real,, and the authors voice is strong. Even better is half the proceeds go to the animal shelter. Would recommend buying this one, even though it's short.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Life worth Living, a dog story for Kindle March 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a dog person, I love dogs and try to help rescue shelter dogs and help them find a forever home, This book is excellent in showing the the true heart of a dog who ends up needing a little help from people. This is deeply insightful and should be required reading for every middle school kid. I hope those who read this book realize there is a way they can help these dogs out of the shelter and into a loving home, They are worth saving, They do have " A LIFE WORTH LIVING"

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, Short Read February 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This short story touches your heart as an animal lover. Told from a shelter dogs point of view, wondering why he doesn't have a family, why he can't be loved. This story will make you pause and think next time you want to bring a puppy from a breeder into your family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad But Touching January 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Though this is a very short story (I got this as a Kindle Single) it was not short on substance. I love stories written from the dog's perspective because it serves as a reminder that they, too, have feelings....and are worthy of a good life. Thanks for writing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Love Goes A Long Way April 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a sap for these animal stories. This is a heartwarming short story about a shelter dog - in his own voice. Having owned shelter dogs (and cats) this guy tugged at my heart strings. Shelter dogs make the best pets because I really think they DO remember and are forever grateful. They can endure all sorts of neglect and abuse - and still have hearts full of forgiveness, loyalty and love.

Got my 99 cents worth and then some.

Plus half the proceeds go to an animal shelter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Best part of the book is the puppy on the cover. March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because one - i'm a sucker for a dog story and two, because half of the proceeds go to an animal shelter. The story took about 9 minutes to read. I knew it was a short story - but it read like the author was rushing to get it done and up for sale. The characters were not very developed. She says it only took her a few hours to write, and it really shows. I do applaud the author for giving half the proceeds to the animal shelter - but really, it was as if a middle school student wrote this in a one hour english 101 class. Whoever chose the cover picture of the book did a great job. It is actually the best part of the book. If you really want to read a good story told from a dogs perspective - read: One Good Dog. That was an excellent story and the author really got into the dogs head.

I liked this "very short" book a lot. Something that could be read aloud to a child or grand child in just about one setting.
