    While nursing a broken heart, Josh Michaels is outraged when a neighbor abandons his very pregnant dog, Lucy, at Josh's Colorado home. But Josh can't resist Lucy's soulful brown eyes, and though he's never had a dog before, he's determined to do the best he can for Lucy - and her soon-to-arrive, bound-to-be-adorable puppies. Soon in over his head, Josh calls the local animal shelter for help, and meets Kerri, a beautiful woman with a quick wit and a fierce love for animals.

    Sandra J. Claar says: "It's a relationship you never lose."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to dog lovers, those who never have owned a dog and virtually everyone everywhere. Dogs teach us about what really matters in life. A dog's love bypasses the everyday minutiae and gets down to what really matters. Past relationships that didn't work out, those who left us before it was time and those who we can still let know we really love them unconditionally. Anyone who has ever owned a dog will know I am not spoiling the book. My Sheltie, Maggie, was taken from me 2 years ago and I am just now at the point where I know I need a dog in my life again. I am ready to give all the love that is spilling out of the seams of my heart in need of a dog to love forever how long that may be. Dogs don't talk in words but innately know how to express their feelings in many ways and this book expresses life with a dog who is also the best thing that ever happened in your life.


    What other book might you compare The Dogs of Christmas to and why?

    This dog seems similar to "Good Dog - The story of Orson - the dog who changed my life" by Jon Katz. And yet they are expressed in a very different manner, so you don't say haven't I read this story before? I didn't think that until this question was asked.


    What does Kirby Heyborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator does any excellent job expressing the many emotions the main character goes through without revealing the end.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I have never been a big fan of books made into movies. The casting is so important, This book would be marketed as a story for everyone regardless of age, gender or present or past circumstances in life.


    Any additional comments?

    I have not read any other books by W. Bruce Cameron. I think I have met an author who knows how to speak to my emotions and intellect.
