🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Mans Best Friend Stars
This is a love story between…
A woman and a man
A woman and her family
A woman and her friends
A woman and a very special dog that led her to her happily ever after.
Through the haze of vodka and self-loathing, Hazel Roundtree saw the poor creature lying in a ditch.
One brown eye. One blue.
Covered in mud and crying from pain, the puppy was desperately trying to free itself from a hopeless situation.
She almost kept walking by. She had her own problems and besides… no one had ever stopped to help her.
Who we’re ultimately meant to be is a journey without end, but there’s always a defined start…
Hazel had no idea the dog would be her beginning, her second chance, the miracle she never saw coming. She named him Atticus. He grew up to be a very bad—and completely awesome—dog. He took Hazel on a life-changing journey filled with mischievous adventure to find her happily ever after. In the end, Hazel grew up to be completely awesome, too.
Anyone that has ever owned a dog should read this book, even if you haven’t you should read this book!!
This book has FEELS guys, lots and lots of feels!
Told from 2 POV’s, this story was expertly written by Sawyer Bennett.
POV 1 is Hazel, she has had a rough time, she was a high school dropout, has a crappy job, and is feeling pretty crappy about her life.
She was married young, and for a time she was happy, until her husband decided to see if the grass was greener in someone elses garden, and subsequently kicks her out leaving her homeless.
Her best friend takes her in and lets her stay with her and her boyfriend on her couch, and she’s happy there too……..for a while.
While walking home one day in the rain, nursing a hangover from the bar she works at, and after spending her last bit of money on cigarettes she hears a noise, and looks into a ditch by the side of the road, seeing a muddy mound moving, but caught in some barbed wire.
Walking down to help out what she thinks is a raccoon she soon realises it’s a puppy!
After getting the wire off of him she see’s that he’s hurt, so she wraps him up and takes him to the nearest vet.
This is where we meet Dr Peele, and he will eventually become a huge part in Hazels life, but for now he is a cranky old man.
He helps fix up the puppy, and gives him back to Hazel, who can’t even look after herself, let alone a dog!
So they come to an understanding, because Hazel has no money to pay for the dogs treatment, she will work for Dr Peele as payment!
POV 2 is from the dog himself, Atticus!
Atticus is a Bernese Mountain dog, and he is naughty!!
Of course he’s not called Atticus at the beginning, but we hear from him when he escaped, when he got stuck in the ditch, and when he was rescued by Hazel.
We hear about how he feels about certain people, about smells, about his little puppy family, but most of all we hear of his love for Hazel
The story is how they both saved each other, and mix that in with a few other characters like Bernard the homeless guy, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a perfect book 😇
You will also hear in the book the Atticus has his own Instagram page, this is a real thing, yes i looked it up, yes i am now a follower.
🎧🎧 Narrated by the incredibly talented Bahnni Turpin, this book was a double whammy for me, one because it is SAWYER FREAKING BENNETT and two, Bahni Turpin!
If she narrated a grocery list, i would buy it!
I would have picked this book up anyway because of the 2 things above, but i was kindly gifted this audiobook by Sawyer herself, thank you so much 😍😘
For those who are not sure what a Bernese Mountain do looks like……..voila!
This one also has one blue eye, and one brown eye, just like Atticus 😍
Give your fluffy friends a hug
