Discover the benefits of being positive. We all have two dogs inside of us. One dog is positive, happy, optimistic, and hopeful. The other dog is negative, mad, sad, pessimistic, and fearful. These two dogs often fight inside us, but guess who wins the fight? The one you feed the most. So begins the story about a negative mutt named Matt and a big dog named Bubba who teaches him how to feed himself with positivity each day and in the process Matt transforms his own life and the shelter they call home.

After reading a review of another book, for which I am considering using my next credit, it was mentioned by another reviewer that REFUNDS ARE POSSIBLE. Well, I will be asking for one for this lame ass book; very amateurish narration (we can HEAR THE PAGES being turned, HELLO!) and poor editing (one phrase was cut off only to be repeated in the same sentence). Seriously, every point he made has been made better by someone else in my Facebook News Feed. Plagiarism and clichés abound. Don't bother.

Today, Wallace is a champion; but in the summer of 2005, he was living in a shelter, a refugee from a suspicious pit bull-breeding operation. Then Andrew “Roo” Yori entered the picture. A scientist and shelter volunteer, Roo could immediately see that Wallace was something special. While on his honeymoon, Roo learned that Wallace was about to be put down. Roo and his wife franticly fought to keep Wallace alive until they could return home to adopt him - even though they already had two dogs.
