We used to have three canine family members and sadly lost them all over the last year and a half. They were all 15 and just passed one after the other in a short time, which was super hard on our family. We do dearly miss our canine children.
We have so many wonderful stories and fond memories from our loyal canine family members and the stories in My Very Good, Very Bad Dog certainly reminded me of my dogs. It brought wonderful memories to mind as well as smiles. The stories are very heartwarming and a wonderful read indeed.
If you like stories about animals, like I do, then you will surely enjoy reading My Very Good, Very Bad Dog. They are wonderful stories for any dog lover, animal lover, or someone that enjoys the Chicken Soup for the Soul Books. I certainly love the short stories and can always find time to sneak one or two in here or there.
