Dog! by Mike Robbins
So you think you know your dog?
Bazza is an easy-going middle-aged college lecturer with a taste for weed, porn, beer and redheads. When he adopts a rescue dog, he sees nothing odd about the animal. Then a Himalayan monk comes to visit, and senses something strange.
Five Star Review on Amazon By Luv2read
A delightful book that will capture the heart of any dog owner, dog lover, or reader who enjoys a well-written clever book, told through a novel protagonist, a dog. Being that I’m a dog advocate, been involved in dog rescue with my husband for the last 28-years, I was drawn to this book. And I was pleasantly surprised to learn that our funny and “thinking” dog in the story was rescued from a sanctuary, having been with two prior families. This is no superficial read and tackles subjects that are bound to get the reader thinking. A good story does two things, it entertains and teaches. This one hits it on both marks. Very enjoyable.
