My Review:
Reviewed by Laura Fabiani

Last week I posted my review of Tammy The Little Cat With a Big Attitude by Liane Carter, which I found to be a gem. Today, I am posting the review of another one of Liane's books: Darcy The Dog Who Talked. Oh my, I loved this one even more!

Liane and her husband Lee decide to adopt a dog. From all the dogs at the local kennel, the one they choose is a dog who had been abused. She was starved and smelly because her fear of water prevented her from getting washed. But to Liane and Lee, she was a dog who needed their love. And throughout the recounting of Liane's memoirs with Darcy, it was this strong and selfless love that transformed Darcy into a wonderful bright dog who flourished under their care.

My heart was so touched by this story! Like her previous book, it was heart-warming, funny and told from both the perspectives of Liane and Darcy. Truly, although Liane had never owned a dog before and did all she can to learn about dogs, it was her endless devotion and love for Darcy that created a strong bond between the two of them. I believe every dog needs to find the right owners and Liane and Lee were the perfect owners for Darcy. She needed their love to become the beautiful dog she was. The ending had me bawling my eyes out.

I highly recommend this endearing book to dog lovers, animal lovers and readers of memoirs. It's a story that will appeal to young and adult readers alike. Truly a beautiful and touching story.
