Would you listen to The Dogs of Christmas again? Why?
Bruce Cameron has done it again! He got me with A dogs purpose and a dogs journey. This one isn't written from the dogs point of view but it is amazing, especially if you are a dog lover. It made me laugh, warmed my heart, made my eyes get watery. When it was over with I was sad and i wanted more of this type of book!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
It would depend on the friend. Some people like this style of writing. Too syrupy for me.
What do you think your next listen will be?
The God Virus.
Have you listened to any of Kirby Heyborne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, I haven't. The narrator was fine...it was the material he had to work with that bothered me.
Could you see The Dogs of Christmas being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Definitely! Hallmark and/or Lifetime is probably knocking at Cameron's door as we speak.
Any additional comments?
I am a dog lover and would be devastated if anything happened to my little furry pal...but I'm not into equating the value of dogs with the value of humans. Also, conveying human emotions to dogs, as if they processed information the same way we do (continuing to refer to the "babies and their Mommy" almost drove me over the edge.) Josh is not all that believeable a character, sounded as if he was emotionally about 10 years old). Also, I didn't understand Ryan's motivation in taking the dog and then desperately trying to find a placement for it. If he was just trying to get even with Lucy's owner why not take the dog and then dump it somewhere. The author is a good writer but this story is too sticky sweet for my taste. If your taste runs to the anthropomorphic then you will most likely enjoy this.
