Review: Dog Tails: Three Humorous Short Stories for Dog Lovers

Dog Tails: Three Humorous Short Stories for Dog Lovers
Dog Tails: Three Humorous Short Stories for Dog Lovers by Tara Chevrestt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’d like to make two things very clear before I start my review of this excellent book.

Firstly, I am NOT thick! Just because I am Irish and mixed breed, there is no requirement to stereotype me. You humans are just too quick to do that. In fact, I am a very clever border collie, springer, and various other superior breeds, cross. You can tell that I am clever, because here I am, at nine years old, writing my first ever book review.

Secondly, I have a vested interest to declare. My Dad was sent an early copy of Dog Tails to review by his friend in Utah, who is the author, and the Mom of my three cousins, Lola, Pudgy and Jazzy. He left it lying around after he read it, and I decided that I would bound in and write up this review to save him the bother.

Well, I can tell you that I really enjoyed all three of these tail-wagging tales. Although my heart was in my mouth at times as I lived the events with the characters, I kept reminding myself that this is fiction and there was no need to be afraid. The stories really capture how we dogs feel and the things that might happen to us, day to day, if we are not careful. You have no idea!

All three were very funny indeed. I was snuffling and sniggering all the way through. At one point my large tail was wagging so extremely, that I was bruising my sides.

Humans will enjoy the stories just as much as dogs. If cats could read rather than lounge around all day, I dare say that they would enjoy reading these too. There I go: not practising what I preach. I just stereotyped cats! I am sure that there must be an active cat somewhere in the world. I just haven’t met her yet.

I have no hesitation in awarding a whole box of dog biscuits to this book. As this is a human web site, I guess I’ll just have to give it five stars too, as that’s the way you people measure these things.

I send my love to my three cousins across the ocean in Utah.

    Reblogged this on Daily Echo and commented:
    Lance Greenfield’s dog, Ronan, suggested she might like to reblog this review of some canine tales… I’m taking the decision out of her hands… power to canines! She says her blog is going to the dogs…
    She thinks that’s funny?
    You might like to know that Mr Greenfield wrote a great novel about a young African girl named Boi who had to walk Eleven Miles to her school every day…which is what he called the book. Boi doesn’t have to walk any more as the money from the book helped buy a school bus.
    Me, I’d quite like to walk miles every day, but she says eleven is too many for her little legs… well, she only has two…
    Short ones at that…
    I#d better shut up in case she reads this…
    Much love, Ani xxx
