Bill Rosencrans- Dakota: A Work in Progress (2008)
Dakota: A Work in Progress is a very funny book about the world’s most neurotic dog and it is appropriate for all ages. You will be laughing out loud as you read each short story about this one of a kind golden retriever named Dakota. Stanley Coren – author of How Dogs Think and The Intelligence of Dogs wrote Dakota: A Work in Progress is a cheerful and amusing romp through the life of a manic but sweet and endearing dog. If you love dogs and need a smile this book is for you. Sonny Brewer – author of Cormac, The Tale of a Dog Gone Missing wrote – Bill Rosencrans’ book about his wonder dog Dakota is a long love letter, really. It’s a treat for the rest of us that we get to read of Dakota’s doings over Bill’s shoulder, reminded on every page why we ourselves love our own doggies. This book has been published by Diversion Press and you can order it through any bookstore. The price is $14.95. To purchase, click here.
Review: This book is a quirky collection of doggie anecdotes which actually had me laughing out loud. As a dog lover I could relate to Bill’s adoration of his dog and how much joy they can bring to our lives. I especially enjoyed the lists of why he shouldn’t go to Pet Smart and how he ruined the couch. I chuckled throughout reading Dakota’s antics and the impression he left on Bill. I even read out snippets to my partner and he had a laugh too. Bill’s story is not your typical novel with a plot and particular problem to be overcome, but it does take you on a little journey with Bill and Dakota- their ups and downs and everything in between. It was definately a light, enjoyable read and I would recommend it to any dog lover!
