Additional Information

For anyone who has ever wanted a puppy, the DOG DIARIES series tells a dog's story in a new way--from a dog's point of view! Focusing on a different breed for each book, these stories are based on true dog stories or on true-to-life situations. With realistic black-and-white illustrations by renowned illustrator Tim Jessel and a factual appendix, dog-loving early chapter book readers will beg for more!

Born in a puppy mill, Ginger the golden retriever looks back on her life and the various people who have "owned" her. Abruptly separated from her mother, littermates, and the wire cage that was her whole world, Ginger is shuttled from one harrowing situation to another until she finally escapes, living as an outlaw with a pack of wild dogs. But freedom doesn't feel so good once she becomes hungry and cold and sick. Will Ginger ever find a furever family to call her own?

Appendix features information about puppy mills, breed rescue groups, animal shelters, choosing a pet, and the history of golden retrievers.

This book is a wonderful book for all ages to read, but especially good to give to someone looking to get a dog. We first see Ginger born in a puppy mill and seeing the horrors of that life for her, her litter mates and especially her mother. Then we see her sold to a pet store that only cares about making money and not the well-fare of the dog. We see her in her first home, then dropped off at a Shelter and see a little of her life there, then in another home, then caught by animal control and then turned over to rescue. It's a heart-warming story where the reader can learn about the dangers and horrors of puppy mills, about getting a dog for the wrong reason, about shelter life, and about good homes and rescues. I'm going out to buy this for all my friends that have children that are staring to beg for dogs.
Holy Dogs! Dog Diaries is the best book I ever read! This book is about Ginger, a Golden Retriever. After leaving her home, she has a journey to discover. This book reminds me of my dog, Max, because he is playful just like Ginger. I think book helps me understand that home is where the heart is. People who love a dog with spirit should read this book!
I downloaded Ginger as a bedtime read together for my 2nd grader, who loved it so much that he finished the entire book without me!
