For anyone who has ever wanted a puppy, the DOG DIARIES series tells a dog's story in a new way--from a dog's point of view! Focusing on a different breed for each book, these stories are based on true dog stories or on true-to-life situations. With realistic black-and-white illustrations by renowned illustrator Tim Jessel and a factual appendix, dog-loving early chapter book readers will beg for more!

Born in a puppy mill, Ginger the golden retriever looks back on her life and the various people who have "owned" her. Abruptly separated from her mother, littermates, and the wire cage that was her whole world, Ginger is shuttled from one harrowing situation to another until she finally escapes, living as an outlaw with a pack of wild dogs. But freedom doesn't feel so good once she becomes hungry and cold and sick. Will Ginger ever find a furever family to call her own?

Appendix features information about puppy mills, breed rescue groups, animal shelters, choosing a pet, and the history of golden retrievers.

I love this book because I love dogs. When I saw the book I could not wait too read it. It had some dying in it but it did not really bother me because it was like a real dogs life and the pictures were really cute. It is one of my favorite books I can not wait to read more of the series!

I loved this book!! I read it over and over again because it's just that great! Very well written and
I could understand it very well.
For ages 7 & up. I would recommend Buddy, by the same author. Barry, which is another book by Kate Klimo, the author, I'm going to place a hold for to see if I like that book, too. If you like horses, Koda and Darcy are two great horse books that I've read. This book is defiantly for dog and animal lovers.

Awesome book… I love animals, so this was a great read. I also enjoyed the other books in the series: "Barry", "Buddy", and "Togo". I hope "Dash" will be a great book as well!

Excellent Book. Recommended for very young readers; especially dog lovers. On par with other great books for children like Betsy Byars ‘My Dog My Hero,’ except that this is a dog’s life taken from their perspective. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.
