Baad Dog ~Sal Conte/E.Van Lowe

I received this story in exchange for an honest review.

Well, here it is. If you have read any of my other reviews you know I am a Sal Conte/E. Van Lowe fan. Huge! But don’t take my word for it. Read this short story and you will understand why. Then, like me you will wait with anticipation for the next book and the next.

We start with a somewhat selfish man who desperately wants to replace his childhood dog. He has the perfect excuse, his children. To him it is win, win all the way around. No mess, no fuss, the perfect cute little fluffy puppy dog. Until one day when a few wires cross, melt or maybe it was just an overheated battery.

This little cute puppy might even put Cujo to shame. After you read this story your opinion on cute fluffy lap dogs will be tainted. Forever.

This is book will forever be on a favorites list of mine.
Thank you Sal Conte for another great story can’t wait for more!
