"A dog named Christmas" de Greg Kincaid

In this heartwarming novel, author Greg Kincaid tells the tender story of how one very special dog changed the lives of his adoptive family and an entire town forever.

Todd, they always want you to adopt a dog. That's what they do. Besides, we don't need another animal around here, and most definitely not a dog.
When Todd McCray, a developmentally challenged young man still living on his parents' Kansas farm, hears that a local animal shelter is seeking temporary homes for its dogs during the days leading to Christmas, he knows exactly what he wants for the holidays. His father objects, but Todd's persistence quickly wins out. Soon the McCrays are the short-term foster family for a lovable pooch the young man names Christmas.

But what about all the other dogs who will be forced to spend the Yuletide season in cages? In the days that follow, Todd uses his special gifts of persuasion to encourage his hometown to participate in the Adopt a Dog for Christmas Program. What follows from his small act of kindness will teach his family, and his community, about peace on earth and good will toward men and animals.

Nota: 4/5

Un libro entretenido, emotivo como sólo puede serlo una historia protagonizada por un perro.

En un pequeño pueblo de Kansas la perrera municipal organiza para Navidades la acogida de los perros por familias durante las fiestas. Y gracias a este evento, la familia formada por el veterano de guerra George, su mujer y su hijo Todd, un joven con necesidades especiales, acoge temporalmente a un labrador al que llaman Christmas (Navidad).

Me ha gustado, se lee rápido y es tierno y dulce, como toda historia de Navidades y perros.
