Book review the Puppy that Came for Christmas by Megan Rix
the Puppy That Came for Christmas by Megan Rix
Marley, Oogy, Huck-and now, Traffy, the "forever dog" that changed one couple's life.
All Megan Rix ever wanted was a baby. Yet, month after month, Megan's dreams were dashed. Would her life ever feel complete?
Megan and her husband, Ian, found a surprising answer when they began training golden retriever pups to become service dogs for people with disabilities. But opening their homes and hearts up to Emma, and then Freddy-only to have each move on after six months-eventually took its own toll. Megan and Ian didn't know if they could continue. Then, one Christmas, little Traffy came along ... and stayed. An instant U.K. bestseller, The Puppy That Came for Christmas is a heartwarming and inspirational story that will captivate dog lovers everywhere
I like to read Christmas themed books around this time of year. I also like to read at least one or two books during the year about animals so this book takes care of both of those likes. And look at the face of that dog. I mean really who could resist that dog. But this book isn't only about how this couple Ian and Meg started training dogs for disabled persons but how these dogs helped them during a time when they were trying to have a baby and it just didn't seem to be working and how these dogs taught them to be content in what they had. I did find it alittle hard to understand a few things because she wrote from the standpoint of someone from England but I was able to figure out what she meant.
I would recommend this book for anyone who likes uplifting stories that involve dogs or animals. Great book for the holidays.
I received a review copy from the publisher via Netgalley.
