About this item


Book Synopsis

"Our fifteen Christmases together have special meaning to me. I see you bouncing about the house, thrilled that tree-decorating day had finally come. I see you in your green, red, and white sweater, sitting by our tinsel tree on Christmas morning, waiting for the festivities to begin. And when Christmas day was over, I see you snuggling next to me in bed, energy spent, lulling me to sleep and guarding against nocturnal attack-rats."

Dog at the Tinsel Tree is a nostalgic story of a dog, her girl, and their riveting adventures on a ranch in rural California. Denise and Susie's journey will have readers reminiscing about their own childhoods and the first pets that made life all the better.

Review Quotes

"How much do we love our dogs? How have our lives changed because we shared them with a pet? Denise answers these questions in her heartwarming childhood reflection in Dog at the Tinsel Tree-Susie's Story. The undeniable bond she shares with Susie takes us all to that place in childhood where our best buddy was a stable source of friendship, comfort, tears, and laughter. Denise has the gift of storytelling that brings us with her on her amazing journey with Susie. I could literally feel every moment. If you have not yet experienced life with a pet, please adopt a rescue animal and enrich your life!"
