Nonfiction 2021 | 239 pages
What a delightful story! Rick Bragg has written 11 books. The Speckled Beauty is his most recent.
This quick read is for true dog lovers. Speck is not a hero dog like Marley or Old Yeller or even Chet of Chet & Bernie fame.
Bragg’s rescue dog is truly a bad dog. The worse dog ever. He doesn’t obey any commands; he doesn’t leave farm or wild animals alone, instead either torturing or chasing them; he herds everything, even birds; he wanders; he fights; he won’t sleep indoors; he tears apart dog beds and towels and rubber balls; he snaps and growls. In short, you are likely to fall in love with him.
I was so surprised to glance at the spine of this book and discover it is nonfiction. Only truth could be this intriguing!
Thank you, Rene, for telling me about Rick Bragg's writing, and especially this dog book. If dogs touch your heart and speak to your soul, then I highly recommend The Speckled Beauty.
