Item description for Buster's Christmas Letter: Lessons from a Dog's Tale of Survival by Robert Lee Wilson...
When Buster, a twelve-year-old Australian shepherd, disappeared for two weeks in the dead of winter, there was little hope that his family would see him again. Unable to walk when he was found, it was a miracle that he survived. But this was only the first of a series of mishaps that took Buster a little too close to "the big kennel in the sky."
Featured on the front page of the local newspaper, Buster's story brought an outpouring of emotion and support that deeply affected his family. It crystallized the essential message of this book that feelings are more important than things.
So the family's annual Christmas letter had to come from Buster. His fresh approach had a unique twist which touched people deeply. Once you have read his letter, its simple but powerful message will reinforce what your heart already knows.
The story begins with the author's children begging for a puppy, traces Buster's antics as he establishes his place in the family and ends with the emotional roller coaster of his survival.

WOW! Feb 22, 2008
LOOKING FOR A BIRTHDAY GIFT, CONFIRMATION, GRADUATION, BAR MITZVAH, OR "JUST BECAUSE' GIFT?....."Buster's Christmas Letter" will fill the bill. WOW!
It is a wonderful book. Not necessarily a Christmas book, although Buster's Christmas lettere is included.
Humorous and poignant, it is the true tale of a dog and his family; a very functional family, as you will see. It should be a model and inspiration for anyone.
The story is beautiful and "Buster's Christmas Letter" is also beautiful from its cover - to the color pictures - to the last page.

A timeless message Dec 10, 2007
Even if you aren't a "dog person," you are going to LOVE this book! Buster's Christmas Letter is the book you'll want to give to everyone you know. Wilson writes simply and clearly, with a thematic message that's timeless: feelings are more important than things. Buster's Christmas Letter reminds us what's really important in life: family, relationships, and telling the people we love how much they mean to us. My family loved reading it aloud. Buster's life, adventures, and impact on his wonderful family, the Wilsons, touched us deeply. I heartily recommend this book. Someone should be working on the movie!

I found this book at a time in my life when I was headed in a bad direction. Some have even suggested that if I didn't change my ways I might soon find myself in the "big kennel in the sky." After digging through this autobiographical account written by an Australian shepherd, I realized that maybe my problems weren't so bad. Buster's Christmas Letter is the perfect inspirational chew toy for this holiday season. Think: a canine Profiles in Courage. This furriffic book will will bring tears to your eyes and leave your howling from laughter. Take a bite out of this one if you're in need of a wake up call about facing life's troubles heard on. You won't believe all of the wisdom you can receive from this four-legged yoda.
