"Dog-Ma: The Zen of Slobber" by Barbara Boswell Brunner Book Review

Please refer to my book spotlight/guest post from earlier today.

Dog-Ma, the Zen of SlobberDog-Ma, the Zen of Slobber by Barbara Boswell Brunner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am an animal lover at heart, so if I read a book about animals that is full of wonderful stories, you can almost bet it will get five stars from me.  And this book is no different except that it is currently my favorite animal book! I loved the stories, the dogs, and the single cat that was featured in it!  I found myself sharing the stories with my family and laughing out loud several times.  It made me realize that dogs have quirks just like people, cats, and goats do.  And there is nothing better than reading a series of stories like this and realizing that as bad as our animals are, these are even worse!  Okay, let me rephrase that.  There is not a perfect animal out there.  Everyone struggles with their animals, and we just choose to put up with the animals we love.  What one person may tolerate, another never could.  And I am glad that the author had these dogs--no way they would have stood a chance with me!

The funniest thing about the book is that I was reminded that truth is stranger than fiction.  That's right.  No way could the author make these stories up.  In a million years, no one could be that creative--probably.  Story after story will warm your heart, make you cry, make you laugh and make you go "Oh, how sweet" in that sugary sweet voice that all animal lovers make when they see or read about something cute!

This book is for any animal lover.  While I am not the dog person I once was,and I don't particularly care for most of the breeds detailed in this book, no doubt that I love this book.  It is irresistible.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
