Emily And Einstein

Hi Dog Filers, welcome to the first of many Dog Files Likes!

What exactly is a Dog Files Like? Glad you asked. As the Dog Files gets bigger and bigger we are getting a lot of companies that would love to get their products in front of you. This led to a question. How could I do this so Dog Filers could not only learn about some cool products but could benefit from the posts? The last thing I want is for you to think I’m huckstering you or lying to you. The Dog Files is my life (aside from my pups) and I would never do anything to hurt the Dog Files or turn you off to the Dog Files.

So I came up with Dog Files Likes. Companies send me doggie products and either I, or a few other choice people in the Dog Files Family will try them out. If we don’t like the product it will never show up on the pages of the Dog Files. If we do like it, we will put it up on the site as a Dog Files Like, so it is separated from the regular editorial content on Dog Files.

But here’s the best thing! Every company whose product we highlight will supply us with giveaways for you guys! That’s cool, free stuff that you’ll have a chance to win. Not bad, right?

Our first Dog Files Like is a book by Linda Francis Lee entitled, Emily And Einstein.

We have three copies of Emily And Einstein to giveaway. To have a chance at winning, just click on this Dog Files Daily Email Dispatch link and fill it out. You’ll then receive an verification email. Click through on that and you are now entered into the contest! Verification is very important! If you don’t do it, you won’t be enrolled for this or future giveaways.

As a plus, by signing up you’ll also get a daily email with all the day’s stories in it.

We will pick three winners randomly on Sunday, April 3rd. Good luck!

Dog Files Like: Emily And Einstein by Linda Francis Lee

A review by Paticia J. Bell

This is a book about second chances, a woman named Emily and a scruffy dog named Einstein, who isn’t what he appears to be.

Early in the story, Emily’s husband, Sandy dies in a accident, only to find himself reincarnated as a little dog that Emily adopts.

I love dogs, but I really don’t like wacky fantasy stories and was a bit worried that the book just wasn’t for me, but instead, what I found was a delightful, multi-faceted story.

Each chapter is narrated by one of the characters of the book, in the first person, which I found very refreshing.

The story is woven around Emily, Sandy and Einstein. It’s very touching and sometimes very funny, like when Emily and Einstein (Sandy) go to the dog park. Einstein does not appreciate all the other dogs sniffing his butt and he thinks chasing a ball is beneath him. But on the other hand, he feels a strange urge to do just that.

All in all, Emily and Einstein is a great easy read for a lazy Sunday afternoon. A wonderful story of love, relationships and plenty of doggie goodness.
