A Lonely Dog on Christmas started off great. I was enjoying the commentary from the dog, his thoughts on things were humorous. He learns a lot of things about people from TV and it was cute. It is not a very long story, but Beckham, the dog, is telling about why he hates Christmas day. It all starts with Halloween and just progresses until the worst day of the year, Christmas. Why doesn't he like Christmas? Well because his people forget about him on Christmas. They don't pet him or anything. They don't pay any attention to him. He never gets any gifts. He is just ignored all day. I was feeling bad for him as we always gave our dogs gifts for Christmas. His people should too!
So it is a quick read and I thought well maybe this year someone will play with him or he will get a new bone or something so then he will be all this is not too bad. That doesn't happen. It is going and I am enjoying it and then in the last paragraphs he realizes oh wait! This day is not about me, it is about my people. They are happy so I should be happy they are happy. It was just like oh...okay. I guess so. It just was not that good of an ending for me. It didn't really seem to go with the rest of the story. There was no lead up to it or anything it was just like suddenly he changed his mind about everything and it just didn't work for me. Oh well.

However, if you take out the objectionable language, I still just don't see what everyone else found to love about this story. Yes, it was told from a dog's point of view, but that didn't make it cute (like I had expected), interesting, or funny. I just found it boring.
If you are looking for a good Christmas dog story, a good dog story, or even a good Christmas story without a dog, this is not it! Keep looking because there are others that will meet either the dog or Christmas expectation or even both of them, but I would suggest skipping this one.
I don't really believe it's properly classified in the "humor" section. There is nothing particularly humorous.
To be honest, I was left with the impression that someone had written this for his own family as a sort of inside joke. I'm absolutely shocked that it has been reviewed hundreds and hundreds of times.
The cover is magnificent and the writing is properly proofed.
And—the misuse of “it’s” and “its” were distracting.
