The Christmas Dog

Melody Carlson

Christmas miracles can come from unlikely sources.

Betty Kowalski isn't looking forward to the holidays. She just can't seem to find Christmas in her heart. Maybe it's because her husband is gone. Maybe it's because she's missing her children. Or maybe it has something to do with her obnoxious new neighbor, who seems to be tearing his house apart and rearranging it on the lawn.

But when a mangy dog appears at her doorstep, the stage is set for Betty to learn what Christmas is really all about.

Betty Kowalski isn't looking forward to the holidays. She just can't seem to find Christmas in her heart. There's church, of course. But who can she bake for these days? And who would care whether or not she pulled out the Christmas decorations?

Her new neighbor just adds to the problem. He's doing home improvements that don't appear to be improving much of anything. These days when Betty looks out the window, she sees a beat-up truck, a pile of junk, lots of blue tarps, and--horror of horrors--an old pink toilet.

But when a mangy dog appears at her doorstep, the stage is set for Betty to learn a very important lesson about what Christmas is all about. This contemporary Christmas story is a timely yet gentle reminder that God can work miracles through something as seemingly insignificant as a little brown dog.

A quick Christmas read
4 stars By Sandra, Dec 26 2018
This is a light read, perfect for getting you in the mood for the Christmas season. A lovely old lady is becoming unsatisfied with her life and is beginning to be worn down, particularly by her irritating neighbour. A friendly mutt begins to cause mischief in her life and slowly wins her heart. Throw in a surprise visit by her partially estranged grand-daughter, and you have a sweet story about relationships to warm your heart at Christmas. I particularly enjoyed this book as it made a nice change from your typical Christmas romances!
