It's the true story of a black labrador--with a few other breeds mixed in--named Winn, and the bond that she and her owner shared. Winn was a rescue dog from the SPCA that Jen adopted when she realized she had a need for something else in her life, to fill a void that relationships with men left empty.

As their relationship grew, so did their family. Winn was very protective of Jen, but as she grew older, their roles would switch, and taking care of Winn was becoming full-time.

By the time I read the last chapter I was crying like a baby. I wasn’t crying because it was a terrible book; far from it. It was just so touching. By the time I was at the middle of the book, I felt like I belonged to Carle’s family. Her writing does an amazing job of pulling you into the story so that you feel like you’re a part of it.

Finally Winsome by author, Jen Carle is a love story. It is not a romance. It is about the pure love of a devoted dog to her owner. Who among us does not need love like this? Mrs. Carle takes the reader into her family and expresses the challenges and joys of a relationship with an alpha female Lab-mix.
I recommend Finally Winsome to dog-lovers everywhere. Good job, Jen.

I love this book! The author, Jennifer A. Carle, presents life with her dog, Winn. She has a simple and whimsical way of presenting her story that makes you fall in love with both her and her dog. She brings "home" the truth that a dog is not just a pet, it's a member of the family. Her stories made me laugh, and cry. They are real. They are inspiring. Thank you, Jen, for sharing a bit of your life with us.
The title of this book is actually Finally Winsome: How an overprotective... Bring your tissues. An easy and quick read that will make you want to go love on your own dog some.
