Yes. Just a great story that makes you feel good.
When Christmas escaped from the shelter and ended up at Todd's farm.
Christmas, because I love dogs.
If you are a dog lover, this is a must listen.
This was such a heart warming story. It started out a tiny bit slow, but after a short time I was loving every minute of the book. This book made me feel such a wide range of emotions. At times I was chuckling and smiling and sometimes had tears in my eyes. It had such a wonderful ending. I would highly recommend this book to family and friends.
This is a nice easy listen. I've listened to the story three times over the last few years, and I've enjoyed it every time. It's a heartwarming and uplifting story. The first time I listened, our family did not have a dog. This year, we're celebrating our second Christmas with our beautiful golden retriever. We had been looking for a dog for a while the first time we heard the story, and the story just served to make us want the dog even more. I guess there's no greater compliment to this dog loving author.
Love to read - began listening to audio books while driving - to keep me from falling asleep. Have grown to LOVE audio books - I'm addicted!
The narrator was amazing. He did such a great job of capturing the emotion and personalities of the characters. The story is just so positive! It made me feel good!
Say something about yourself!
Such a heartwarming story with plenty of giggles. I didn't expect to get as sucked in as I did. Usually I am a mystery thriller horror story kind of reader but this was great. He is accurate on animal shelter operations and I love the message provided! A must for dog lovers!
This deal of the day has been sitting in my Audible TBR queue for a few Christmases now, and I am glad that I saved it to listen to during the holiday season! Set in Kansas, an older coulple and their disabled son find their lives - and really their whole community - changed when they take part in the Adopt-A-Dog for Christmas program with their local shelter. It's a sweet Christmas story that doesn't exactly break new ground, but is a heart-warming story that I can see being one to go back to again for the Christmas season.
And upon listening to this at first, I had no idea that it was part of a series or had become a Hallmark movie (with the same actor who plays Mickey in Shameless?? as Todd). I definitely want to try to track down the movie, and I will keep my eye out for more of the series to hit the Audible deals for next Christmas! The narrator performs this well, and while the story doesn't provide a diagnosis for Todd, the narrator has chosen a distinct speech pattern for him that is at least consistent, if not accurate with the novel (it's a bit distracting at times). But really, there is more to this than I originally expected - more backstory and action and it just kind of reminds me of those childhood movies... it doesn't have a modern feel to it, more timeless really since George's war time memories are vague enough to be interchangeable with almost any war... All in all, it's a nice Christmas story and though predictable, it is predictable in all of the nicest ways possible! It has certainly made listening to this, while coloring a Christmas gift with my dog laying beside me a very pleasant experience!
