A Good Dog Feb 4, 2008
This is a box of Kleenex book about a gentle old beagle at the end of his life. A Christmas Angel appears to the dog and grants him one last wish. His altruistic wish is to join the animals in the Christmas Manger to greet the Blessed Savior and the Angel gives him a chance to do that. A beautiful and very moving story and a good companion book to I'll Always Love You; Saying Goodbye to Lulu and Candle: A Story of Love and Faith.
As the owner of a beagle and one who loves beagles, I found this an especially moving story.
A delightful seasonal picturebook celebrating faith and love. Nov 6, 2006
Written and illustrated by animal lover Christine Davis, Old Dog and the Christmas Wish is a gentle picturebook for young readers about an old dog near the end of his life, and a Christmas angel who grants his selfless wish. When the old dog sees a Christmas manger carving, he notices that several wooden animals are there to greet the birth of a very special baby, but no dog. He wants to join the animals more than anything else, and as his time on Earth comes to a close during Christmas Eve, the angel gives him the opportunity to do just that. A delightful seasonal picturebook celebrating faith and love.
