Some people think my reviews are too critical and I am starting to think that I am not critical enough. I might have given this a 3 stars, but I didn't really like much about it so, I might be giving lower scores in the future.

Especially when when you entered a light coated dog in the "all black coat dogs Contest" well it was okay and ...more

This is a cute story about a dog and owner who compete in a dog show. The end is a surprise but I didn't think it was all that great. Children may find it very funny. This would work with the K-2 crowd. There are so many great dog books, this one would not be my first choice.
