Having liked One Good Dog a LOT, I decided to read Susan Wilson's next dog book. I didn't find it as good, probably because the plot was a fairly standard lost dog plot. Dog is loved by owner, dog gets lost, dog is loved by new owners, will original owner ever find her dog? But in Wilson's hands even a standard plot like this made a good read. The title comes from the fact that Justine's dog, Mack, enters dog dancing competitions. Justine has had a difficult life, although many of her difficulties have been self-inflicted. When she loses Mack on a cross-country trip, she is naturally devastated. Mack is found by a couple who have lost their only daughter and he brings a sense of love and peace into their lives. Told alternately in first person by Justine and as a third person narrative of Mack's new life, it is a book that most dog-lovers will enjoy. I was wondering how it would end, and will only say that for me, a dog-lover, the ending was very satisfying.
