Review:

These Pug At The Beach books are for anyone who needs a 'pick me up' or a reminder that they are alright just the way they are. Pug's wisdom and philosophy are right in alignment with the cutting edge ideas of spirituality and science today. Pug is not a character you'll ever forget. --~Rev.Dr. Ann Ronan, Authentic Life Institute

Pug is a wordlier Snoopy, if you will, unleashed from the trappings of dog dish and master. His Woodstock is every shorebird, their shared birdbath the entire ocean. Pug At The Beach is a...dreamy yet contemplative read, like dozing at the beach. --Jeanne Sable, The Keene Sentinel

Pug isn't a breed of dog so much as a philosophy of life...he's also a little Zen and a beach afficionado. This is a cozy, quirky little book that has great thoughts on life and definite salt-air flair. ~ Geegee Russell, owner of Buxton Village Books This unique book bursts on the literary scene with a gathering series of striking life perceptions that deserves nothing less than approbation. Pug has been called 'a worldier Snoopy,' but that worldliness is not based on cynicism. Rather, Pug has a gift for living and learning within a well-honed optimism. This is a fine, clear, accessible read that will stay with you a long time. ~ Dr Barry H. Leeds, author of The Enduring Vision of Norman Mailer Pug makes me happy, thoughtful, reflective, quiet, joyful. Pug gives me hope, inspiration, and a few belly-laughs. Pug teaches we can all become who we want and need to be.~ Rev Olivia Holmes Getting to know Pug is something you'll never forget. When I first read Pug I was immersed in a new definition of peace. Pug is not just a great read, it's a great relaxation for your mind!~ Valerie Morgan-Hodge, author of The Farmer's Daughter Pug At The Beach is a long, rolling wave with a sweet curl, a lanky heron skimming the surface, an evening bonfire in the dunes, and that lazy, deep warmth you feel after absorbing the sun and salt air all day. Pug pushes us forward and leads us astray all at once, with purpose, poignancy, and big love. ~ Loretta Prescott, founder and CEO of Kettle Boys Popcorn I have really enjoyed reading this book and meeting Pug too! The think about this book, is that it's not overbearing, it's a happy nudge about reflecting on what's good in life. ~ Jennifer Thompsom, founder of Monkey C Media --Readers and fans of Pug At The Beach
