God and Dog Review and Giveaway
GOD AND DOG is a phenomenon. First appearing on YouTube, the video of Wendy Francisco's charming animated illustrations and moving song tells of the unconditional love of both God and Dog.
With over 2 million YouTube viewings to date, Francisco's story appeals to all ages, to animal enthusiasts, to people of religious persuasions, and especially to anyone who has been loved by a dog.
Now in book format, Wendy's touching narrative will be expanded on through additional lyrics, illustrations, photographs and some of the powerful mail that is continually being sent to Francisco.
My Take: As readers of my personal blog may already know, I have a love/hate relationship with my dog. I even wrote my own storyblog about her. In fact, she is the muse to many of my posts. Did you know that if you spell God backwards, you get dog? Did you know that if you spell mad backwards and add an "n" at the end, you get part of what I call my dog?
The real truth is that she frustrates me at times but she is pretty special. There is a correlation between God and a good dog. Our dog, Sunday, joined our family just in time to give us a glimpse of hope. Aptly, we named her Sunday. The reason is found here. Actually, I'm not much of a promoter of my personal blog, but I invite you to take the time to read this post. It is relevant to any person who is struggling or tired.
WIN IT: Thanks to Anna of the Hachette Book Group, I have two (2) copies of DoG and GoD to giveaway!
To Enter: Tell me something that makes you happy!
