So God Made a Dog Book Review

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

In April I mentioned a devotional book I was a part of and promised I’d let you know when the book with my dog devos, So God Made a Dog, came out. Well. Here it is! So excited to hold this book and read not just the eleven devotions I wrote, but all the other dog-lovers’ devotions about the various dogs we each have shared our lives with.

Fifteen different writers contributed a total of ninety different dog devotions to show us that just like humans, every dog is unique and has lessons to teach us. In reading these devotions, if we look closely, we see stories of compassion, stubbornness, loyalty, grace, honor, and strength. Traits our dogs exhibit which can have a spiritual meaning for us all.

On the pages of So God Made a Dog are stories which are funny, poignant, and sweet. They touch hearts and make us laugh. They are stories which need to be read more than once.

In my devotions I write about Bear, Kirby, Buckshot, Samantha, Shadow, Shang, Timothy, and the Iditarod sled dogs. These dogs all hold a special place in my heart. Because of that, I hope you’ll pick up a copy of So God Made a Dog, and learn what made each writer feel their dog’s story needed to be told.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject. Leave a comment below. If you think others would appreciate reading this please share it through the social media buttons.

I wish you well.
