Daisy Dog

To the tender-skinned and tearful: You need to buy this book because you are told you need to heal. No one can make that happen more than I can by reading my story. I tackle problems of the most vulnerable...Tinselown types, millennials and D.C. politicians. Joe Bite'n and his running mate, Caramel Rarist will soon become America's President and Vice-President. For those who are anxious because of that and other current events in our country and are hiding out in their safe spaces, at last there is welcome relief through my gentle satire and advice. Below is a letter I wrote to a member of the Dog House in Washington, D.C. that I heard was whining a lot lately. It is an example of the wisdom I try to impart:

AOC, as America's Comfort Dog I know you would like me to help alleviate your stress. By focusing on how to become a superb elder dog by slowly adding to your repertoire and yielding to other barks is a good beginning.

You will not see growling, whining and teeth-baring from me-- Just doggone good common sense! Remember that pups need to take their time and learn some valuable tricks from old dogs.

Licks and a tail wag,
DAISY

You have to read it. Maybe it will change your life.

All will enjoy this cleverly written satire. I found myself unable to stop turning the pages to see who Daisy would encounter next as she makes her way from humble beginnings to the world of Reality TV. What fun matching Daisy's dog friends and encounters with our own real world superstar culture.

The author is spot on describing the world of Reality TV as seen through the eyes of a lovable rat terrier, Daisy. The book is enhanced with the author's own original artwork and her dogisms, which are hilarious.

Buy this book. It's a tail-wagger!

Daisy's Reality Show Adventure is a cleverly written account of a dog, living in an all-animal world, who embarks on the reality show circuit. The author reveals the protagonist's inner dog through her ups-and-downs. The short story tackles some of today's societal issues--Daisy is an activist dog with traditional values who lets her voice bark be heard. Thrust into a world that is foreign to her after her humble beginnings, she accepts the challenges of being part of the reality show culture by competing in American Howler after being discovered by a talent scout...stints on Top Mutt Chef, Project DogRun, and Retriever followed. In the end, Daisy has an epiphany after discussions with Dr. Phil McGrowl and her life changes.

Through this book the author is able to raise consciousness about the reality show phenomenon and popular culture. And through this satirical humor writing, makes the reader pause and think. It's obvious a lot of research was done by the author, as the breeds of dogs and their characteristics are well-depicted and there are many dogisms in the story. She obviously made herself aware of the Hollywood lifestyle and personalities and watched her share of reality TV in order to accurately portray her characters. It's an additional treat that the author illustrated her own book.

Daisy's Reality Show Adventure is a fun story for kids and adults alike.

The story follows Daisy as she leaves behind her old world and begins the journey to stardom. In this reality TV world we live in, Daisy's story fits right in. The book is filled with satirical characters... you have to check it out! If you are a fan of American Idol (or should I say American Howl), buy this book as you won't be disappointed!!

Excellent social commentary on the lives of "stars" in the US. The artwork clearly illustrates the souls of the characters especially Daisy.

This review is from: Daisy's Reality Show Adventure (Paperback)

I choose this rating because I was very impressed at Carol Wallace's imagination and wisdom. Daisy overcame so many problems and due to her will to succeed she did. The art work was beautifully done. I guess the moral of the story was that no matter what you have happen to you in life, you can never give up and work to succeed. I also loved the names of the dogs.
