The Adventures of Snip in Oregon by Betty S. Moir, Illustrated by Yumi V. Vong
This was a delightful little children's book about Snip the dog who lives with the Moir family. Reading the book was like having Mrs. Moir there to tell you about her memories of the dog. Snip was a poodle, malamute, husky mix who looked like a black sheep dog. He came to live with the Moirs when they moved to Oregon and his previous owners were moving to another country and couldn't take him. Some of the stories included are how he helped around the ranch, loved ice cream and riding in the pickup, and his adventures with wild animals including a skunk. It would be a good book to read aloud to a child although there aren't many illustrations. Mrs. Moir has plans to write about more adventures with Snip.
I've sent the book to my 10-year-old niece to read. We'll see what she thinks of it.
