Publisher's Summary

This is a novelette-length audiobook.

Rufus the dog and his owner, Edward, are the best of friends. They spend their evenings sharing pizzas and cans of beef stew while watching movies. What could be better? When Edward decides to try online dating, Rufus's small, furry world is turned upside down. Gone are the days of lounging and cuddle time! Now, it's one undesirable lady after another, coming into their once-peaceful lives. 

Will Edward ever find love, and if he does, will there still be room in his heart for Rufus?

If you like Wallace and Grommit...

you’ll love this charming book. Very entertaining and engaging. The narrator really brings Rufus to life. It really feels like the dog is telling the story. Look forward to more Rufus adventures!

Cute story

This is such a cute story. This story is being told by a dog named Rufus, talking about his owners love life. If you love animals, you will love this story. This audiobook made me laugh and giggle because some of the things Rufus did to Edward and his girl. Couldn't stop listening until story was over. Narrator did a good job too.

Rufus: A Dog Story

This book is adorable. I enjoyed how it's told from Rufus' point of view. There are a few swear words and it mentions premarital relations.

cute story

First to be transparent, the author was giving some free codes to this book on audible. Though definitely not my normal book, it sounded cute and I wanted to give it a try.

I'm really glad I did. The story kept my attention and I was pulling for the dog at the end.

I guess it was predictable, but not in a bad way.

It was a quick enjoyable little book right at the holiday time so it just kinda fit.

I would give this one a try. I'm going to try out some of the authors other stuff. I don't want this to come across too bland. I think it was a great little story and I wholeheartedly recommend you listen to it.

So cute

Dogged by Love is an absolutely adorable short story narrated by the main character, Rufus the Dog. The characters are cute and the storyline is interesting. Rufus, of course, performs a fabulous narration.
I received a complimentary copy and have chosen to give my honest opinion.

Sweet romance - and he has a dog

Rufus (the dog) tells us all about his dad (Edward) and Edward’s escapades as he searches for love. A witty, funny, sweet romance that will have you believing in the power of love (and dogs) for a happily ever after.

A quick sweet romance from a dog POV

Nothing super sexy, in fact nothing even majorly romantic. You have a dumpy guy with a dog who finds love on an internet dating site but the dog is a spoiled brat and this is more his adventure and his feelings about his "dad" finding love. The narration was great but the story was just meh.

Too adorable- so much fun!!

This is such an adorable book. I love that it’s told from the POV of the dog. And the story itself is pretty funny. Rufus’ human dad is dejected because he doesn’t have love. But Rufus has total appreciation and love for his dad, including his dad's “cushy tummy”. (I’m ultra amused by this book). What happens when Rufus' dad tries online dating and he spends less time with him? And what happens when his dad finds love? Will there be room for all of them? This book just bring so many good feels and I think even someone who doesn't love dogs would love this book. So precious and imaginative, with lots of chuckles. This is just a really fun book.

Chris Dillion is great- He uses a cutesy voice that works with the dog POV. And he uses a good accent to differentiate voices and included some adorable barks to accent the canine POV. I found everything about this book enjoyable!

I received this book upon request. Thank you for a 1.5 hours of smiles!!
