Dakota: A Work in Progress is a very funny book about the world’s most neurotic dog and it is appropriate for all ages. You will be laughing out loud as you read each short story about this one of a kind golden retriever named Dakota. Stanley Coren – author of How Dogs Think and The Intelligence of Dogs wrote Dakota: A Work in Progress is a cheerful and amusing romp through the life of a manic but sweet and endearing dog. If you love dogs and need a smile this book is for you. Sonny Brewer – author of Cormac, The Tale of a Dog Gone Missing wrote – Bill Rosencrans’ book about his wonder dog Dakota is a long love letter, really. It’s a treat for the rest of us that we get to read of Dakota’s doings over Bill’s shoulder, reminded on every page why we ourselves love our own doggies. This book has been published by Diversion Press and you can order it through any bookstore. The price is $14.95

This was a fun loving book that demonstrates the love and frustrations and being a dog owner and lover. It was an interesting format written in a collection of short stories. All in all, reminded me why I miss having a dog and all of the struggles that pet owners go through each and every day. The funny antics of Dakota are great and I can just picture them in my head when reading the words. The books seems to jump off the page.
