"What if a wheezing, sneezing, allegedly house-trained, ticking time bomb of an orphan pug is the key to helping a family feel at home again after an arsonist set their house—and life—on fire? If you asked me, I would have said it's a bad idea; we can do better. Unfortunately, no one asked me, and The Pug List is my family's story.
In the midst of battling insurance, building their new house, and parenting three traumatized children—all while suffering her own scorching case of post-traumatic stress—now is the worst possible time to adopt a dog. But to Alison Hodgson's seven-year-old daughter, Eden, it's the perfect time—and The Relentless Campaign begins.
The campaign is fruitless... until Alison peeks into Eden's diary—her "Pug List"—and realizes in one fell swoop that her girl's heart is on the line and resistance is futile.
"But the pug motivates me. So I just keep working and working all day long! The pugs make me happy FOREVER!
Enter "Outrageous" Oliver, and all the hilarity, extraordinary love, and unexpected healing that he brings.
