What The Dog Ate by Jackie Bouchard
What The Dog Ate by Jackie Bouchard starts off at the vet’s office, where after hours of bewilderment as to what could have possibly gone wrong with her dog, Maggie Baxter is handed a tiny pair of lavender thong panties that Kona, her dog, accidentally digested. The only problem is, the panties aren’t hers. Much to her surprise, they belong to a “friend” of her husband of the last seventeen years, and this is how she finds out that he has been cheating on her. When he leaves her, Maggie and Kona must learn to fend for themselves and piece their life back together. She takes on a new strategy for living her life and stops analyzing everything and just goes for it, similar to the way her dog Kona thinks. Will this new strategy help her solve her woes and move on from a broken heart?
I absolutely adored What The Dog Ate! Being a dog lover, I found the relationship between Maggie and Kona to be authentic and heartwarming, and it made me think about my two boys and how much I adore them. What The Dog Ate is tender story about following your heart (or your nose) and how sometimes, the perfect companion is mans best friend. Overall, a truly heartwarming story that I would highly recommend to any dog lovers or to anyone looking for a heartwarming story.
