The dogs are the true stars of this book, each with an immediately evident personality, though they’re all lovable. Sweetly, the perfect dog turns out to be the one who chooses the narrator. While this book doesn’t do anything new, it’s a shoo-in for lovers of dogs and humor: funny and charming.
-Kirkus
