What if your dog died and then came back as a ghost…that could talk? Would you welcome him back with open arms or run away scared to death? 


This is the premise of IT’S JUST A DOG, a new novel about love, loss, and one man’s dog who rises up yapping from the grave.


Charlie Keefe is not just your typical dog lover –– he’s a world famous dog painter, a.k.a. “The Picasso of Pooch Portraits”. Unfortunately, Charlie’s beloved muse, Pete, his lovable Jack Russell terrier, has just died. And he’s totally devastated by the loss of his furry best friend.


So, after months of grieving over his dearly departed soulmate, Charlie reluctantly agrees to foster a new puppy –– a cute Cavalier King Charles spaniel named Brownie from the local animal shelter. Soon after, Charlie is surprised to find himself falling head over heels with this new puppy girl, his ‘Rebound Dog’, as he calls her –– as well as being romantically attracted to Janelle Jordan, the head hound at the dog rescue.


But then complications arise when the ghost of his old dog, Pete, mysteriously reappears one night and comes back to haunt him and the new puppy –– setting off a bizarre chain of events that throw Charlie’s life, career, and entire belief system into chaos!


If you’ve enjoyed such classic dog books as The Art of Racing in the Rain and A Dog’s Purpose, then you are bound to find a place in your heart for IT’S JUST A DOGPart Book, Part Blog, ALL DOG, (Okay, there may be a few cat videos, too, to show some love for the other team!)

My Review~

I have read many books about animals,but this one was quite different. As being a animal lover,I can relate as I think of them as part of my family,not just a dog. This is such a great read as he gets it! Be prepared to laugh,cry and just be part of this wild adventure.You will be so surprised when Pete comes back as a ghost and talks to him! This is the first book I have read by Russ Ryan and I really liked his writing style. He writes a way that will touch your heart and then adds a little humor. A great Summer read for all. Very quick and easy.
