Have you ever known a dog—a mutt really—who had
more stamps in his passport than most Americans? Well, that’s Lucky and
this is his story.
Born on the streets of Mexico City, he won the
‘Doggie Lottery’ when an American couple picked him up and adopted him.
From then on, Lucky has lived the life of a pampered American pooch—a
very spoiled and much-loved member of his family.
Told in his own words, the account of his
adventures is charming, funny, sometimes bittersweet, and engaging. He
travels all around Mexico with his ‘parents’ and observes many
interesting aspects of the Mexican culture from his unique ‘doggie’
point of view. Then he moves to Southern California where he is firmly
ensconced in the beach life.
It’s time to move again, so the family packs up and
relocates to the Netherlands, where the people love dogs - all dogs. He
appreciates a great deal of the Dutch culture, and the people
appreciate his charming personality as well.
Then he’s off to London where he lives for several
years, taking in all the sights and experiences in his special ‘doggie’
Author Christie Shary has created the persona of
Lucky in such a way that the reader truly feels they’ve met and come to
know him as himself. Readers of Christie’s other works expect expert
storytelling, and this book delivers.
A treat for dog lovers, whether kids or adults, and
even for those who just enjoy a well-told and well-written book.
Once you meet Lucky, you’ll never forget him.

I was immediately immersed in the life of Lucky and
finished reading the book in less than a week. Told by Lucky himself,
it is the perfect story for any dog lover. Five paws for Ms. Shary!
Lucky could do a doggie sleep over at my house anytime!
My mom and I always share our "good reads" with
each other. Lucky’s story is on the way to her as we speak.
