A wonderfully written insight into the world of fostering dogs. I really enjoyed reading the authors journey of looking after these dogs and the funny, heartwarming or sad stories that went along with them.

The downside for me, was the authors own dog who comes across feeling like a burden. At one stage in the book she is referred to as dumb and lazy and only kept because the children love her. She admits to not putting the effort into training Gracie and concludes in the end that maybe she should stop wanting her to be something she wasn't and accept her for the dog she was. I hope she finally did this as it is disheartening to read from someone who seems so passionate about rescue.

Otherwise, a delightful read with some good information if you're thinking about fostering yourself.
