Six individual stories each with their own inpirational message. The stories are ones we can all realte to on some level. They are so well written that they warm your heart, tug at your heart strings, bring a tear to your eyes and make you smile. They leave you with every emotion touched and lots to think about. Enjoyed them and recommend them to everyone, whether a dog fancier or not.

This is a terrific book. Thought since it was all short stories I could read a little at a time but ended up zooming through it, totally hooked after the first story. Now I wish I had more. I don't know anyone who wouldn't be able to relate to the stories. All a little different.

I have been following Lisa Begin-Kruysman's blog journey "National Dog Week", always finding her posts to be heartfelt and unpretentious. Based on the over one-hundred blogs, Lisa has created fictionalized short stories with a title inspired by St. Anthony, patron saint of lost travelers. I was immediately drawn in by the photo on the cover. The beach scene with the pair of dogs waiting for us, leading us towards the light at the end of the watery path in the center, speaks volumes!

An engaging writer, who writes about what she loves and knows well, Lisa ups the anty here in her poetic and symbolic use of language. Centered around the experience of finding oneself at a loss as we live our lives, these six "tails" explore meaning and insight that can be gleaned from sharing the company of our loyal canine friends.
This is a lovely, cozy and light read. Lisa has turned her experience and passion of a life lived around dogs, into sweet comforting pieces.
I look forward to this being the first in a series!

Something's Lost and Must Be Found is an entertaining, amusing and satisfying foray into the world of dogs and the people who love them, sometimes despite themselves.

Begin-Kruysman writes in an engaging, easy-to-read style about several special canines who bring joy, love, hope and happiness to those who cross their paths. The stories are each different, but united by a common theme of "something lost". In some cases it may be a human quality, in others it may literally be a physical thing lost but each story varies from the others and each is uniquely entertaining.

The collection of stories was written in honor of National Dog Week, which begins on September 17th. It is worth noting that each story highlights the importance of dogs in our lives and many highlight the importance of animal adoption and rescue.

If you are an animal person who can give a dog a home now is the perfect time to consider getting one if you are able. Do some research on the web, find out which breed would be best matched to your requirements, (e.g., size of the breed, size of your yard, energy level of the dog, type of recreation you like to participate in) and please remember that puppies aren't the only dogs who need homes, a lot of really loving older dogs are seeking their "forever home" too and are just waiting the opportunity to be adopted. For many of these older dogs the proverbial clock is ticking rapidly. Please consider giving them a home.

If you are a dog-lover you will greatly enjoy Lisa Begin-Kruysman's collection of short stories, if you are just a lover of a good short story you will also enjoy these tales. I enjoyed Something's Lost and Must Be Found" and I think you will too.

Each one of these stories left me feeling so good. I did have two favorites...the story about the huge black dog Simon...really warmed my heart as did another about "stipends". Come to think of it...each of these stories offered something unique and special and I enjoyed them all. Stories about love for dogs that just makes everything balance out in life...the right way. Definitely recommend.

This is a collection of stories where a dog appears in each of them. The best part they are heart warming with a message to all. The author has a great imagination with the right amount of bringing in a special and personal touch. Happy reading!

Something's Lost and Must be Found is a wonderful book with many short stories that revolves around owners and their dogs. First, I have to say that I am a dog lover and a dog groomer. Each story tugged at my heart. The story about a grieving mother learning to love again brought tears to my eyes. The story about Simon/Bear also brought tears...I wanted to adopt him right here and now. Each story was unique and well written by the author that she made you feel the emotions that the owners were feeling. I can't wait to read more stories by Lisa. She truly and genuiely loves dogs...you can feel it in her writing.

This grouping of short stories involving dogs was a pleasure to read. They were all hear-warming and thought-provoking as to how many of our beloved canines are treated by we humans. I would recommend this to anyone that has a soft-spot for dogs.
