Book Review: Mutts Shelter Stories, "Love Guaranteed"
"A dog wags its tail with its heart." - Martin Buxbaum

Mutts Shelter Stories: Love. Guaranteed. (Hardcover)by Patrick McDonnell (Author)

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED,  this book!!  
O.k., so I love all his art and the heart he has for the animals.
(Did I mention I Love Mooch & Earl, his characters:) YESH!!!!!

The best way for me to describe this book is: 
Beautifully compiled, endearing, lighthearted, poignant, and best of all, easy to read. 
Urging, but not preaching readers to adopt rescued dogs from shelters and rescues.
Great for adults & a wonderful teaching tool for children, to learn about animals in need, in a very gentle way.  Recommended for animal lovers of all ages.

People like Patrick make this world a better place, paying their successes forward, in so many ways.
Not only do I admire Patrick's talents & dedication to the cause, but the true emotions captured in this book about shelter animals, patiently awaiting a loving forever home.
Stories I know first hand, how rescued animals just speak with their eyes, wanting only their own humans to love unconditionally... 
It is captured in it's true essence, stories that make your heart smile...
Claws up, for a pawfect book review!!!!
