As the month ticks away and sales continue to NOT rack up, I’m still able to take some comfort in the fact that reviews are coming in. Yet another today, this a four star review for Mexican Mutts, Tequila Pups and Chili Dogs.
A very engrossing, enjoyable read

The book is a collection of short pieces, stories interspersed with newspaper articles, the latter concerning animal cruelty in Mexico; but isn’t that the case everywhere? The stories are presented as true accounts fictionalized. They will appeal to dog lovers, of course, but really their appeal is universal. The first story, for example, is about a reluctant dog owner — not the most lovable guy, perhaps, but likable. There is a truth in this amusing story about human/canine relationships, as you will see; oh by the way, dogs can sometimes outsmart humans.
The stories are a poignant telling of humans and dogs: engaging stories with interesting, well-defined characters (both human and canine).
I certainly have to take some satisfaction from that last line. Some people get my stories, others don’t. While the stories center around dogs, it is really the human characters that define and drive the tales. I’m ecstatic that another reader has gotten it. COOL!
