Book Review: "The Dog at my Feet"

From The Back:

Pets are such a big part of so many of our lives. As any pet lover knows, a wagging tail or a tender purr can soothe the soul after a hard day. And sometimes, the presence of dogs and cats in our lives can do even more. In these delightful books, Callie Smith Grant collects stories that celebrate the dogs and cats in our lives--stories that touch our hearts, renew our spirit, and show us how God created these beasts for unique purposes. A funny little dog named Prince earns his title by protecting the children of the house. A "dickens of a cat" gives a cancer survivor something else to think about. A lively litter of puppies soothes a troubled child. A scrawny kitten helps an anorexic girl begin to eat. 
Well-known authors, including Melody Carlson, Tracie Peterson, and Robert Benson, as well as new voices share their inspirational true stories of these otherwise ordinary cats and dogs whose presence in the lives of humans make them remarkable. Each book also includes interesting sidebars, memorable quotes, helpful hints for living with dogs and cats, and forewords by H. Norman Wright. The stories are warm, captivating, and ideal for a good curl-up-and-read or for a gift to any pet lover. Cat lovers, dog lovers, and anyone who likes to read uplifting stories will cherish these books.

My Reflections: By: Me 

I really enjoyed "The Dog At My Feet" because I felt like I could relate to this story. I have a service dog, and he is really awesome. 

My favourite part of the story is at page 67, called "A Dog Named Blue" I enjoyed this section of the book because it reminded me of how strong a connection between a dog and its owner can be. 
My Dog and I have a wonderful bond. 

I did, however, find this story really sad. 
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves stories about their lovable pets.
