What if a wheezing, sneezing, allegedly house-trained, ticking time bomb of an orphan pug is the key to helping a family feel at home again after an arsonist set their house - and life - on fire? If you asked me, I would have said it's a bad idea; we can do better. Unfortunately no one asked me, and The Pug List is my family's story.
In the fire's aftermath of insurance battles royal, rebuilding plans, parenting in the face of life's hard questions, and a scorching case of post-traumatic stress, now is absolutely the worst possible time to adopt a dog. But to Alison's seven-year-old daughter, Eden, it's the perfect time - and The Relentless Campaign begins.
Until one day Alison peeks inside Eden's diary - dubbed "The Pug List" - and realizes in one fell swoop that her girl's heart is on the line, and resistance is futile ("The pugs make me happy FOREVER."). Enter "Outrageous" Oliver and the hilarity, healing, and irresistible hope that follow.

Great story! It just left me wanting more, in a good way of course! Adopt don't shop and pugs are the best!
