This book is a tail-wagging treat for anyone who has ever been "owned" by a Dachshund or other four-legged friend. It follows the cult classic REDSTRIPE AND OTHER DACHSHUND TALES by the late Jack Magestro. In this sequel, once again Redstripe and her companions rate "Two Paws Up" from a growing readership. Often compared to the stories of James Herriot, all three Redstripe books bring readers laughter and light.

As a lover of dachshunds, I thought this was going to be a great book. However I was disappointed and highly distracted by the poor editing skills even within the first pages. It was very confusing and irritating. Beyond that, the assumptions made were irritating. For example, an early section of the book has a scene where a woman takes her two dachshunds up an elevator to a law office (I think it was) and they left "a token of their disapproval on the floor as dachshunds will do" don't take that as a direct quote, but very close to. That is disgusting. What dog owner would let their dogs pee in an elevator then walk away?!? It's stupid and not funny.

Beyond that, a benefit of fictional writing is that you get to pick the characters' names yourself, it would have been great if the editor would have suggested a name I didn't have to stumble over every time I saw it - Citron? whatever. At any rate, the dachshunds are portrayed as spoiled brats and their owners as rubes catering to the pups.

EDIT: After getting a direct email from the author following this review, I feel it is only fair to clarify that I have not read his previous book. My only experience is with second one. To that extent, my opinion on this text still stands. He did mention an upcoming third book, perhaps it will be better.

The series is great and even better if you are a dachshund owner. However, there are several grammar and spelling issues throughout the book, which, in my opinion detracts from it a little.

Keep them coming, Jack!
The characters and settings of these stories are pure pleasure. The dialogue is a complete joy. And, any dachshund owner can tell you how true they are to the endlessly fascinating parculiarities of the breed.
I am hoping this series contiunues for a loooong time (sorry--couldn't resist)--if so, I have finally found my cache of feel-good fiction!

Not too bad of a book, a little different than most dachshund stories I have read. Would have been nice to have some illustrations in it though.

I can't help it, as I've read both his Redstripe books I've envisioned them as movies. I think they would translate really well to film. I think Citron and Sheila are a super couple. Another Redstripe please!
