I've read Vickie's work before and loved it and having had a very heavy week I really wanted something I knew was going to be a fun read. Vickie described it as silly but I didn't find it silly at all. I found it funny, oh so funny, entertaining and a great read.

Josie moves into a house with nice guy Ben, pretty poser David, plus the star of the book - and by far the funniest character of all - the dog, Glen. It's a testament to Vickie's great writing that despite having a husband called David (who I love to pieces), I never thought of him when I came across the name `David' in this book. I only thought of the character she presented so skilfully.

Anyway, as you can probably imagine there's a little to-ing and fro-ing about who is the right guy for Josie and that's great - I love a good rom com. However, the hilarity of the book lies in the additional stories, including poor Glen being pimped out but meeting his own doggy love.

I like funny books. I like books that make me go `Aaaahhhhh!' and `Squeeeeeee!' Mr B likes them less. I'm sure it must be very hard to be a serious fantasy writer when your wife keeps reading one liners and laughing like a hyena. What can I say? The book is laugh out loud funny and deserves to be celebrated.

Thank you to Vickie Johnstone for providing a perfect read. A wonderful tonic to a difficult week, a must add for anyone who loves dogs, fun, romance or... um... naked cowboys. This is a book with something for everyone!

Ever wondered what our pets are thinking? Vickie Johnstone attempts to get into the mind of a dog, Glen, in this highly amusing comedy romance. The story focuses on Josie who moves into a house with two new friends - Ben and David. It isn't long before we have an awkward love triangle with model David and the more reserved Ben both taking a liking to Josie but which one will she choose? Then there is the small matter of Ben's dog, Glen, who falls in love with Miss Posh, a golden Labrador he sees at the local park. Will love find a way for someone?

Johnstone wrote this book as part of NaNoWriMo and it's a good example of why this annual event is such a worthwhile one for writers. Josie has come out of one relationship and is somewhat lost to begin with. The attentions of both Ben and David are unexpected but they are very different people. David is both a model and a musician who keeps in good shape and thinks he is God's gift to women, while Ben is the nice guy who looks destined to lose out to his house mate. Then there is Glen who has the best moments in the book. Johnstone devotes some sections of the book to Glen's thoughts and these range from incredulity that Josie would consider David over Ben to excitement about the park and, of course, dog treats. Glen also falls in love with a dog at the park and is determined to be with her.

This is a delightful and funny read throughout. David is the guy the readers will love to hate while Ben is the one that we will all want Josie to be with and not just because he owns one very cool dog. Whether she ends up with either house mate or no one at all is not for me to say. The story takes a fascinating turn in its second half with Glen being the star of the show.

Just have to share my thoughts about this book. Normally I do not read romantic comedies but this one defies genre boundaries by mixing with the narrative. It is the story about a thirty (I am guessing here) something woman who has just moved into a house with two chaps. In a way it could be called swimming with sharks as she has more that a few attempts to win her admiration. Each one is charaterised by an anicdote which has me laughing out loud. For there are two stars to this novel. First is Josie and she says a lot clever well observed comments which will have you agreeing with her regardless of what sex you are. Second is the hound who is hilarious.
The woofy part of the story is touching. It brought a tear to my eye on occasion but I am a hound fan. This is the best book I have read in a while and hope that Ms Johnstone takes the hint (that is if she reads her reviews) and writes another romantic comedy with just her two female leads in it. I remember someone saying that Nick Hornby's About a boy is a way for a woman to see how boyfriend really is. Ms Johnstone tapped into the same thing and I thought that her novel gives a very revealing look into what a girlfriend is thinking. Superb stuff!

Oh my gosh this is a funny book. I hate to harp on the topic of how the dog made the story, but I think he did. I know for sure I will forever look at my own dog and wonder what she is thinking.

PAWS FOR A DELIGHTFUL READ--Vickie did a terrific job transitioning between the romance concerning the humans and the love the dogs had for each other.

There was just the right amount of suspense between everyone/thing involved to keep you turning the pages and hoping all would work out well. I really enjoyed the story. It's such a feel good read and recommend it to all aged readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Cute Light Reading, Quirky Characters 30 Aug. 2013
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a fun read, especially for dog lovers. Some of the situations are outrageously hilarious. A girl finds a room in a house with two guys and a dog, after breaking up with her long-time boyfriend. Then all pandemonium breaks out, and its a whirlwind read after that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good supporting actor 5 Oct. 2012
By Alex Canton-Dutari - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I must begin by stating that I am biased in favour of Ms Johnstone's books, though I can remain objective.
After having read her Kiwi series I suspected that the author would have some difficulty in handling adult human characters. I was definitely happy to be wrong. These characters were very human and, in this book, the animal seemed more like a good supporting actor.
The plot was developed quite well and was realistic enough -- even with a participating thinking dog.
This book was read by the child in me and enjoyed by my adult self.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and funny read! 20 May 2013
By Greta Burroughs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Any book that features a dog as a main character has to be good. Right? Well, most of the time... some of the time?
This book, "3 Heads and a Tail" meets my idea of a good book. It is very humorous and a fun light read. Vickie Johnstone is one of my favorite authors and I always look forward to reading her work.
It is written for readers over 16 years old. Folks wanting to be entertained will enjoy this book. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet 17 Aug. 2012
By Leland1234 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sweet, romantic, and light. A perfect end-of-summer read. Think "Three's Company" but more intellectual, and with two guys and a girl instead of the other way around. And then add a very smart four-footed housemate to the mix. You can't help but smile as the story unfolds.
