It's a Dog's Life by Dale Mayer
It's her first day at the vet's office and she wants to do well; she really needs this job. Then a dog starts talking to her. Is she losing her mind?
Ms. Mayer gave me a copy of this novelette to read for review (thank you). It is available on Amazon as an ebook.
Ninna has never worked with animals and isn't even sure she likes dogs, but she needs a source of income to pay her bills. This job will help with that. And the veterinarian is really cute and nice. Maybe this could be her dream job. If that floppy eared Basset Hound would just leave her alone, it'd be great.
He informs her his name is Mosey (and when he moves, that's about his speed). She thinks his loose skin is disgusting; he's real pleased she can hear his speech. You already know how she feels about it.
When she finds out the vet is living across the street from her, she's thrilled. Here is her chance to get to know him better, discretely, of course. Even better, he has to go away for the weekend and wants her to babysit his menagerie. She agrees willingly. That will let her know if a pet is will work for her and might also be the beginning of a relationship with Stuart. She sure never expected it to save her life...
This is a well written light tale that will make you smile with the bantering between girl and dog and girl and girlfriend. Why not download the book, get a cup of coffee or tea and sit in your reading chair with a good read? You'll enjoy it, I'm sure.
