totally understand it, it sneaks up on you and delivers a sucker punch of truth about the human spirit. Jinky the dog has lessons for all of us: be grateful for what you have, you could be a whole lot worse off! This sweet, funny, bawdy book is a laser beam into understanding the exotic microcosm of the folks who inhabit Hollywood. However, it has an underlying message for us all, particularly during this holiday season, which is to really love your life and those who inhabit it. Hooray for the rescue dogs!
This book is hilarious! I think Hollywood can only benefit from a dog's diary. Jinky teaches us all that humans are a nutty breed and that we spend way too much time complaining about things that don't really matter. So much so, that we can barely appreciate the finer things in life. Like the the perfect "Tootsie Roll" poop. Life is full of Stupid Kitties, so what? To know Jinky is to have the answer to the eternal question, "Is the dog bowl half-full, or half-empty?" Especially in Hollywood, there's nothing like a little laughter and gas between friends!
Thank you Carole Raphaelle Davis for writing such a fun and entertaining book ~ and thank you so much for your continuing work in support of animal rescue!!!
Carole's ability to capture Jinky's plausable thoughts on what it was like to endure callousness from uncaring owners who abused him and "threw him away" into the joy of being given a second chance is uplifting.
This book is a testimony to those who can not speak for themselves and gives the reader a look at how saving one life destined for death can be turned into a life that dreams are made of.

Jinky is the humerous dog of an actress. He gives it to you straight about his daily life and what his mom puts him through. Quick read and good for some laughs.Published on July 25, 2012 by TJ
