The Pug List: A Ridiculous Little Dog, a Family Who Lost Everything, and How They All Found Their Way Home by Alison Hodgson

“What if a wheezing, sneezing, allegedly house-trained, ticking time bomb of an orphan pug is the key to helping a family feel at home again, after an arsonist set their house—and life—on fire? If you asked me, I would have said it’s a bad idea; we can do better. Unfortunately no one asked me, and The Pug List is my family’s story.”

In the fire’s aftermath of insurance battles royal, rebuilding plans, parenting in the face of life’s hard questions and a scorching case of post-traumatic stress, now is absolutely the worst possible time to adopt a dog. But to Alison’s seven-year-old daughter, Eden, it’s the perfect time—and The Relentless Campaign begins.

Until one day Alison peeks inside Eden’s diary—dubbed “The Pug List”—and realizes in one fell swoop that her girl’s heart is on the line, and resistance is futile (“The pugs make me happy FOREVER.”).

Enter “Outrageous” Oliver, and the hilarity, healing, and irresistible hope that follows.

I’m not particularly fond of dogs, but i enjoyed The Pug List: A Ridiculous Little Dog, a Family Who Lost Everything, and How They All Found Their Way Home all the same. This book shares Alison Hodgson’s family’s story of a fire, a dog, and plenty of faith, and I just flew from the first page to the last. It’s a heartwarming and quick read, full of heartbreak, healing, and hope (with several hilarious moments). Again I’ll say that I really enjoy it, and to interested readers, I certainly recommend it.

Thanks to BookLook Bloggers, I received a copy of The Pug List and the opportunity to honestly review it. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
