    "A Perfectly Good Dog" I enjoyed reading "A Perfectly Good Dog". It was both funny and sad. I liked the format of having short stories, but it is hard to put it down. Anyone who loves dogs, and is aware of the need to save dogs that are given up through no fault of their own, will enjoy reading about the ones that crossed Grace's path. She puts words to many of the emotions that all animal lovers feel towards animals in need. Little Pieces is always a favorite. It's hard for me to pick a favorite, but I love the story, "Ring".

    "A Perfectly Good Dog" It's two a.m. in the morning, as I close the book - so much for promising myself to save some stories to read over the next few days. Grace's storytelling style leads you on as long as there is a page to turn. Do resist thumbing through first to view the photos, as they embue their story with that dog's very personality and character. Look in Pallie's eyes and then read her answer to Grace's introspection in 'I See You.' 'Ghost Story' is one of my favorites (it's so hard to choose!). Sure raised the hair on the back of my neck! To cop a phrase from M.A. Sanford's foreward, now it's time for a Grace Book II!

    "Review for "A Perfectly Good Dog." Review by C.McIntosh" A must read for anyone who has ever had a dog in their life. The stories are varied in length, topic, and perspective. Where else can you get a dog's eye view of stealing butter, a human's perspective on events encountered on daily walks, or a real-experience ghost story? Reserve an entire evening to read this book because it is impossible to put down once you start!

    "A Perfectly Good Dog" A wonderfuly good book! I waited with great anticipation for Grace's book to come, and upon reading it was not let down. She has the amazing power to touch your heart and gives great insight to the emotion of the dogs. I could imagine the dogs in her care and cried at their misfortune and smiled at every happy ending. I read aloud Stevie Ray's story to my husband, and we both were crying at the end- from laughing so hard! This is a wonderful book for any animal lover, it is sure to touch your heart.

    "A Perfectly Good Dog" Compassionate, Engaging, Hilarious one moment, profoundly sad the next. I laughed until my sides ached at "Stevie Ray's" story! I applaud Grace for embracing her love of the Border Collie, as well as her ability to convey that dogs really are intelligent and loving beings. Thank you for sharing your journey through Animal Rescue. This book is a must read for lovers of life and dogs alike.
