Mr and Mrs Cripps owned a little dog, an unwanted Christmas present from a friend.
They fed the dog, and washed him, even cleaned inside his ears. But they didn’t give him a name.

(The little dog felt unhappy. And in his heart, he whispered a name. Sad.)

(One day a truck came, and took everything away – everything. Except Sad.)

 

Sad, the dog is a story for dog lovers.

It’s about how sad and lonely dogs feel if you don’t give them the love and attention they deserve, and about how to introduce yourself to a dog who has been mistreated, how not to push them and let them come to you.

While this story has a rather sad opening, you won’t be able to keep from smiling at the uplifting, heartwarming ending.

Paired with absolutely perfect illustrations, this is a gorgeous book for kids and grown-ups alike, and delivers an important message with regards to animals as gifts, just in time for Christmas.
