I really enjoyed this. A very simple story. It will get you in the Christmas mood if nothing else will. I am sending this as and early christmas gift to my family who are all dogs nuts and christmas crazy...I will be listening again...too.
Absolutely. I've recommended it to everyone I know. What a wonderful uplifting story. I was afraid from the description that it would be heart wrenching, but instead it was heart-mending. A great Christmas story (I read it during the Christmas Season) this story is timeless, and I would recommend it any time.
That the characters were real, identifiable people who inspire the listener's loyalty. I liked everyone in the story, but especially the son who stole my heart completely. I learned from them and that doesn't happen in books often enough.
When Christmas came home.
Listen to it and thank me later.
I loved this book so much I went out and bought copies of it for my family! The story was heartwarming, funny and sad in places; well worth the three and half hours of listening time required.
This book was funny most of all. A little predictable at times but that is what made it so good. It is a story filled with warmth and made me think about naming one of my future pets Christmas just because of this story. I liked that is was not sappy but hit all the feel good things one likes in a short listen. I will listen to this again.
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
This is just a perfect, classic, wonderful, wonderful Christmas story. Its one of those that help us to keep hope and faith alive. I'm also a sucker for animal stories.

I have to admit to having a weakness for Christmas stories that aren’t too sappy or preachy I also have a weakness for dog stories so this book filled the bill to perfection. I am also the mother of a mentally disabled son so Todd really touched my heart. This is a short and delightful book, it’s about so much more than the dog named Christmas it’s about healing and community and how one person’s good deed can change people’s thinking.
I really enjoyed George’s transformation throughout the book and how he and his wife Mary Ann as parents of a child with a disability have a hard time giving up the reigns as that child gets older in chronological age but not always in mental age which makes it even harder to let your child grow up. I see there is a second book and have downloaded it before I was halfway done with this one because I didn’t want this story to end. There is one part *No Spoilers* that I thought was going down a clichéd path and had me yelling at my speakers but luckily it did not go down that road!
Mark Bramhall narration was perfect, he is fast becoming a go-to narrator his voice is subtle yet the way he reads a book it feels like sitting across the kitchen table in rapt attention listening to a master storyteller. I will pick audio over paper everytime if I see he is narrating!
If you are a fan of Christmas reads, dog books or Mark Bramhall I highly recommend this delightful story!
A sensational story with a top quality narator - I'd recommend this to everyone with a heart that needs a touching story.
Love, love, love this story. It's so heartwarming. I fell in love with Christmas immediately and just had to read the next story about him right away. I highly recommend this book if you have a soft spot for dogs (don't tell my cat).
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.
