Reviews - What do customers think about Puppy In The Pulpit (All God's Creatures)?
An Easy and Fun Read!!!! Apr 3, 2006
I truely enjoyed reading this book. I just got a new puppy myself and can relate. Even though I do agree with the previous post of "buying" a dog instead of adopting one from a shelter, of which I did, I could honestly relate to her experiences. I also find the relations between "Dixie Lee" and Ms Phillips religious teachings to be interesting and enlightening. The book was easy to follow and one that was hard to put down, but once you did, you can pick it right back up and not loose your place. I laughed, had a tear and throughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more of her series.
Good analogies and points to ponder Feb 14, 2006
Ms. Phillips is wonderful at creating analogies between a dog's life and human's life and our relationship with God. She is very good at making points, both obvious and subtle. We definitely need to learn from our dogs - to enjoy the moment(s) and to take pleasure in the little things in life. The only thing I didn't like about this, and it's just my personal preferences, is that she "bought" Dixie. With over 11 million animals being euthanized every YEAR, I would have preferred if she would have went and adopted an animal from a shelter. As buying from a pet store only promotes demand, and thus the supplier must increase their "supply" thereby increasing the life of misery that those animals in "breeding" facilities must endure. I also didn't like the fact that because she couldn't housetrain her other dog, that she got rid of it...and the way she phrased it came across a little callous.
