New Reviews for Mexican Mutts, Tequila Pups and Chili Dogs

Getting reviews!  What a challenge this is.  Almost as challenging as writing the book itself.
I have been killing myself trying to get some reviews for my latest book – Mexican Mutts, Tequila Pups and Chili Dogs – True Stories of the Dogs of Mexico.  I now have three reviews with and overall rating of 4.7 Stars out of 5.  Not bad.

Here are the reviews.

This is a very engaging mix of short doggy stories from one of dogs’ very best friends, David Gordon Burke. Most of these short stories lean towards the sad and tragic with some nice yappy endings. However, Burke’s raison d’être is exactly that dogs are being mistreated, in Mexico in these cases, and we humans need to do a lot about it. The problem may be acute in Mexico though hopefully improving, but that is certainly not the case in all corners of the world.
Burke makes very good use of newspaper reports between his conventional short stories, which greatly add to the ambient feel of seriousness behind his reflections. All the stories are based on general truths from real incidents, though some have been lightly fictionalised to make them more engaging and rounded.
The stories are well written, though the version I read had a few very inconsequential typos. There is always danger in not mentioning this, as grammar fiends seem to so enjoy destroying great writing, like this, on such thin pretences and especially if they feel ‘conned’ into buying.
As one of those people that actually prefers the average dog to the average human, I am bound to empathise deeply with this book, however, I feel even strange folks such as cat lovers and rodent fanciers will find plenty here to grab their attentions, stories drawn from the street-life of Mexico.

If you love dogs of any breed as I do, you will enjoy this book. There are some very sad stories and some giggle spots. I love people, but hate how gruesome they can be with animals. I did not have to purchase this book since I can read them for free, but I am happy to help the author out by giving him a good review. I do not do this lightly. I could tell in every story that his passion is to show the pain people inflict on animals and the story needs to get out, no matter how hard it is to face. Please read this book and enjoy the excellent writing of David Burke and let your heart lead you in helping abused and homeless animals.
I am so grateful for these reviews and pleased that the readers enjoyed the book.
