What people and pugs are saying about Summer Pugs

"It's well-known that I'm a big softy when it comes to dogs (hopefully, BonBon my cat won't be reading this). So when "Summer Pugs: Lizzie and Mason's Cape Cod Summer" hit the desk, I had to take a lingering look. I didn't pick up right away that these were local dogs. I thought they were just visiting, as so many other family pets do. But Lizzie and Mason enjoy a Cape Cod home just like the rest of us and all the pleasures of sea and sand. What is so appealing about photos of dogs doing doglike things (running, sleeping, riding in the car, staring down a couple of lobsters, greeting the UPS guy)? I don't know. But if you love pugs or silly books about dogs, you'll appreciate this light little book. Or you can tell people you bought it for your kids. Right."
