I had not really been overly interested in reading this as it seemed a bit ridiculous. I am so glad though that I did because I really enjoyed it. Mar..Show More »k Tufo's entertaining style, and obvious love and knowledge of dogs made this a really lovely story that ended far too soon. The play between the animal characters is really lovely and the characters really well thought out and executed. Riley is a great character and the play between her and the cat is particularly funny. The star of the story for me is BenBen, the Yorkshire Terrier. His eternal optimism and search for food is endearing and hilarious.
Another short burst of fun but a much darker story
Having loved the first installment of Riley's tale I was eager to read the next; and relieved it was already available! However, this second installme..Show More »nt takes a much darker turn with the pack's arrival in Vegas. As a dog lover I found it difficult to read actually due to the pack running into a dangers much worse than zombies. The pack work together to keep each other safe and in doing so, find out much more about each other. BenBen continues to be highly entertaining in his naive enthusiasm for life and two-leggers. Riley and the cat continue to work together in mutual distaste which makes for very funny dialogue. There is also a surprising new voice added to the fray.
The only thing that would make this story better is BACON!
