A Dog Story

Finished November 13
Rex and the City by Lee Harrington
This charming memoir about a woman, her boyfriend and the dog they adopt together from a shelter is a touching one. They had both been talking about getting a dog for quite a while. On impulse they stopped one day at a shelter, and the rest is history. Her boyfriend, Ted, felt a connection to the dog when he saw it at the shelter. The shelter hasn't given them any information on the dog, so they don't know what it has been through previously, but are pretty sure it must of been abused from the way it acts. They take advice from many many books and from other dog owners. They don't always agree, but that is also part of the story. Included are the ups and downs, the moments of despair and of joy. A wonderful for pet owners and pet lovers and that many of us can relate to. Inspiring and a feel-good book.

  1. Thanks for reading and reviewing my book :)
    I googled myself today - something I rarely do - and came upon your wonderful blog.
    I'm glad you enjoyed the book, and hope you are staying warm. This picture is of me with my "new" dog, Chloe. She's another French spaniel mix, and I adopted her three years ago. Wallace, sadly, died in 2003.
    Best, Lee Harrington
