GoD and DoG by Wendy Francisco
Just as a reminder, October is National Adopt-A-Dog Month. So, it's the perfect time to discuss Wendy Francisco's little book, GoD and DoG. And, the book is one of the books in the Hatchette Book Giveaway. You have two more days to enter that contest. Check my blog for October 7, if you'd like to enter the collection of five books.
This book first appeared on YouTube as a popular video and song by Francisco. Now, it's in book form, although I hope that the video is on the blog, so you can see it as well. (No promises.)
GoD and DoG may appear to be a simple little book in which Francisco does not say God and dogs are the same, but that dogs were made by God, and reflect his love. It's a book to think about, with the similarity as to the simplicity of love given by God and dogs. The book will take about two minutes to read, but the message will definitely stay with you. Francisco's book is a treasure to share with dog lovers of all ages.
Wendy Francisco's website is http://www.wendyfrancisco.com/. And, if the video doesn't show on the blog, check it out on YouTube. Just search for GoD and DoG.

It's an honor to be asked to review books, and I'm grateful to all the publishers, publicists, and authors who send me books. Thank you. Reviews will appear on my blog if I've had a chance to read, and finish, the book. If I do not finish a book, I won't review it, and I will not respond to emails asking when, or if, I'll be reviewing a book.
