The life of a dog is a confusing thing, one that goes beyond what we think. A dog could spend it's entire life trying to find the perfect home, and Alpha Dog is a good example of a dog's life as chubby Mandy seeks out the perfect home for her.
Mandy has only three shots at finding the perfect home for her. She speaks to fellow dog, Shadow about her journey to living where she is now.
You may get the idea that the book may be very depressing, but it presents itself in a way that will be very entertaining for children. I was almost enchanted by the way the story was told. It kinda made me feel like a child again, and in a perfectly good way. I almost wish I was one again because I loved being enchanted by K-9 picture books. Most children books just don't have heart these days; Mandy brings soul back to picture books.

This is a group of childish stories that teach very adult lessons and offer an easy way to open a dialogue on a number of topics that concern us all.
A simple dog - and doggish reactions - lead to troubles but also to forgiveness, healing and wisdom.
What's not to like?
Paula is a grade A writer (and person) and by simply buying a book you are supporting lots of wonderful things in a very positive way - not the least of which is the charitable donation that comes off the top of every sale!
I just cannot think of a downside to this.
You love books (or why would you be here?) and having this one on your shelf means animals, interpersonal relationships and an inclusive view of people and faiths are important to you.
That "buy now" button might be the best click you could make today - do it and see.
