MVM Book Review: Do-Ma - The Zen of Slobber by Barbara Boswell Brunner


dogmabadge3

”Dogma”
When Barbara meets her future husband, Ray, it is love-and dog-at first sight. Over the course of thirty-two years, seventeen re-locations and nine dogs, their mutual love of dogs guides them on their unconventional path. The love that Barbara and Ray get in return is literally lifesaving, with one dog attacking a lethal intruder and another discovering Barbara’s cancer. Her own survival story underscores the story of how her dogs become survivors themselves. Each new dog adds its own dynamic to the family, sometimes upending it. From Turbo (whose Spock-like ears may have provided super powers), Barbara learns about the will to live; Lexington demonstrates incredible patience and an inexplicable love of golf; Madison teaches that laughter is truly the best medicine and that the whole “nine lives thing” is not reserved just for cats; Morgan should be sainted for tolerating Izzy, who is as cute as she is bad. Barbara is certain that somewhere in doggie heaven there is a poster that says “If you are sick, injured or in need of really expensive medical care, FIND THESE HUMANS!” *******************************************


Ashley's Review!

Dog-Ma is a delightful story about a couple who has a love of dogs that transcends time and in their case place. This story is one you must read! I read the synopsis and just had to have it. I had to have it so much that I ASKED to get in on this book tour AFTER the tour was over!!!

You begin your journey into the lives of Barbara and Ray's life with their fur-babies with them starting out. After multiple promotions and business ventures you will go through the happiness and pain right along with them. You feel their excitement when they get a new puppy and you want to cry when tragedy strikes and they lose one of their amazing fur-children.

I am not one for spoilers so I won't go into too much detail but I will say this: YOU MUST GET THIS BOOK IF YOU ARE A DOG LOVER! You will laugh and cry. Go get it NOW!!!
