Dear Clementina by Colin Burke

This is an especially cute story done in the form of letters from one border terrier pup to another.  Stanley is so excited to find another pup in his breed in the park, he sends her letters to stay in touch.  They sound just like they've been written by a dog, too!

Publishing Push and the author shared a copy of this book with me for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy of the ebook or print on Amazon.

This man has obviously owned dogs.  Anyone who has a pet will recognize the uniqueness of their animals.  Each one is different, even siblings from the same family.  (Kind of like family, isn't it?)  They all have attributes that make you smile and a few that irritate you.

This pretty puppy finds his owner's sock and the man is happy to see it because it was lost.  When he finds socks that aren't missing, the man is not so happy.  I love that it is written from the puppy's point-of-view.  He's not sure why the man gets so excited about some things.  After all, he did it before and it was OK, what's wrong now?

You get to go for walks with him.  You see how deserted he feels when he's left with a sitter while they go on vacation.  He tells you how they go out to have a drink and leave him home.  He always welcomes them home enthusiastically, even if they weren't gone long.  He also tells you about his vet visits and the dog behavior people who attempt to train him.

If you enjoy animals, you'll enjoy this read.  It's different, is filled with humor and makes you smile.  To me, that's a keeper.
