This is the story of a dog named Scraggly. Born an outsider because of her distinctive appearance, she spends most of her days in the sun-filled yard of her owner's house. Scraggly has dreams and aspirations just like the rest of us. But each winter, dark clouds descend and Scraggly is faced with challenges that she must overcome. Through the clouds and even beyond the gates of her owner's yard lies the possibility of friendship, motherhood and happiness — they are for the taking if Scraggly can just hold on to them, bring them home and build the life she so desperately desires.
The Dog Who Dared to Dream is a wise tale of the relationship between dog and man, as well as a celebration of a life lived with courage.
Today I am super excited not only to be sharing my review of The Dog Who Dared to Dream but to also be hosting a giveaway! So if you want a copy of this amazing book then look no further!
The Dog Who Dared to Dream was a fun, fast and seriously cute read. The time absolutely flew by while reading this gorgeous gorgeous novel!
I honestly did not expect to enjoy this as much as I did, after all this is a book about animals. And I have memories of Babe and Animal Farm and Charlotte’s Webb in my head. Basically books from my childhood.
And I felt that this was a book that could be read by any age, young or old, everyone will get something out of this story. I was easily drawn into this story and Scraggly had my heart, an adorable loyal dog who refuses to give up.
This is a gem of a story, one that is beautifully told and exquisitely written. Books rarely capture the unknown so truthfully but this felt right and honest and had my heart.
We all dream of adventures. But Scraggly shows that big or little, our whole life is one big adventure.
