Top critical review
on 10 December 2015
I'm a massive animal lover (especially dogs) and I love Battersea's work. However, I have to be honest about this book. Yes some of the stories gave me a warm glow, (for example how a little dog brought two people together and they found love), but others made me a bit depressed. The reason for this was that they talked about the owners illnesses and battle with cancer. Although I empathise and wish all of the owners well and I know illness is part of life, I wanted a purely, happy, feel good book and I don't think this delivered. I ended up feeling sad about some of the owners and what they were going through and it diverted my thoughts away from the real reason for this book ....... the animals.
