Book Review and Giveaway: Pukka by Ted Kerasote (Ends 11/12) CLOSED

Friday, October 29, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Pukka: The Pup After Merle by Ted Kerasote is a heartwarming book about the friendship between the author and his new yellow lab pup, Pukka. The story is told in the voice of the puppy and is illustrated with more than two hundred photos. Pukka and Ted meet, bond and go on all sorts of adventures in picturesque Kelly, Wyoming, and beyond. Their love story is moving and fun at the same time. Pukka is irresistibly cute, and Ted's affection and sense of humor shines through each page.

The story and the photographs are beautiful and tell Pukka's story perfectly. Ted Kerasote's previous book, Merle's Door, is about another dog - the stray Labrador mix the author adopted. Pukka is Ted's first dog after Merle - hence the title of this book.

Pukka is the perfect gift for anyone who loves dogs, and is certain to delight animal lovers of all ages.

    It will be two years next month that I lost my little Poodle friend Max, and I miss him everyday. He was almost 18 years old when he passed away in my son's arms.

    I have had several dogs, Blackie,
    Honey, Molasses, and Bebe. Most them were Labrador mixes. Now, I am retired and without one so I would love to adopt soon.

    We had two dogs when I was a kid, one of them had to be put down, and the other one wasn't happy with our family so we gave her to a friend. She was much happier at his house.
