    12. This is a whimsical rhyming story about a woman who adopts a hound from the pound and chaos ensues The story is entertaining and fun to read aloud The illustrations are colorful and hilarious and really complement the story nicely I like that the story emphasizes adopting from the pound or shelter and also the benefits of obedience training We enjoyed reading this book together.

Matt and Pam brought this book for Maura when they visited a couple of weeks ago Maura loves it Last week, she had me read it to her every night It s a fun book with great pictures It s written in rhyme, but the rhyme scheme is pretty clever I think it made Maura a dog lover again It was touch and go there for a little bit, as we saw her gravitating to the dark or cat side.
