A Dog Name Derf is an encouraging book, not only for children, but for the family, as well. I know Raven H. Price, personally and I am so proud of her accomplishment. This story has it all, and it's told from a dog's point of view. So, come... get to know Derf and his family. It's funny, lively, will have you in tears and takes you on a real life adventure of a family who loves their precious dog and cats.
I like how Raven introduces the Holy Spirit into the story. You'll get to know a little about Raven the author, but, also, Raven the wife, mother, sister and pet lover. You'll be touched profoundly as she shares real lifes' challenges, tragies and triumphs! So, if you're a pet lover, as I am, and you're looking for a book to teach your child on the passing of their pet, or you need to be refreshed in your spirit, look no further. Raven's heartfelt book will lift your spirits and having you yearning for more.
“Derf has a mission. He wants to share with everyone, young and old, how a loving Creator along with the Holy Spirit rescued him as a puppy and gave him a wonderful life.
He was blessed with a loving home and two wonderful human parents, an extended human family and five cats.
With Daddy Ralph, his parent, and best friend. Derf spends twelve short years enjoying fellowship, going on adventures and watching over those they loved
Allow Derf to tell his amazing story of salvation, love, overcoming trials and learning not to fear even death and loss.”
This was an endearing read for me and is a great read for the entire family. I loved how the story was told from the dog, Derf, point of view. The whole gamut of emotions is felt right from the beginning with Derf losing two sibling puppies, and happiness follows this sorrow. I dislike thinking of all the animals that fend for themselves in a cold and vicious reality of the needs for food and shelter. Price brings the Holy Spirit into this short story and that is comforting. Derf was loved by Price and her husband, and when you lose a pet it is a difficult thing to deal with. Some say it is like losing a child, but that it is not. Having lost lifelong pets and two children, I know how much harder child loss is in real life. I cried buckets over losing my pets as well. Due to grammar and editing issues, I can only give four stars at this time. Upon being edited, I will adjust my review accordingly.
