"Doranna Durgin has an uncanny ability to put into words the thoughts and reactions we can almost see in the behavior of our animal companions. She has a well-trained understanding of animal behavior and her astonishing awareness of changes in attitude and mood gives her insight into their lives. She also has a special talent for translating that understanding into dialogue from their point of view. I follow her blog and newsgroup posts for updates on her animal family, and read everything she writes for those moments her non-human characters speak up. This collection holds a bonanza of those moments. That my purchase also benefits ConneryBeagle adds to the delight of owning these stories."
~Kristina Forsyth, Reader at Daily Cheap Reads

"I loved this book. The stories are engaging; some made me laugh, others made me cry. A very touching read and certainly for a good cause!"
~Jill Metcalf, Author of FAMILY REUNION

"Nobody writes dogs as well as Doranna."  
~Adrianne, B&N Reader

"This collection of stories will delight dog lovers and please all readers. I know of no one who can write from a dog's point of view more convincingly than Doranna Durgin. Buy it to help pay for Connery Beagle's medical care. Buy it because it's a collection of terrific stories. Just buy it! You can't go wrong."
~E. Rose Sabin, Smashwords Reader & Tor Author
