Book Review: Ladoo Dog: Tales of a Sweet Dachshund, by Aneeta Sundararaj
October 3, 2013 by thedarkphantom
Being a dog lover and knowing a little about Aneeta and her love for Ladoo, I just could not wait to read this book and as soon as it arrived, I just couldn’t put it down.
My family and I have had various breeds of dogs over the years; each loved tremendously including the long bodied Basset Hound but never a Dachshund. Man has over the centuries, through selective breeding changed the shape of dogs to suit particular roles and it was very interesting to learn more about this wonderful breed.
That Aneeta and Ladoo shared a very special bond is obvious, and the story of how these two souls became one, sharing their life together is lovely to read. The chapters enable the reader to see snippets of their lives, and appreciate this bond whilst learning a little about culture and life in Malaysia.
The phrase ‘They were made for each other’ is quite commonly used; however, you only have to read this book to see a true example. Ladoo was a wonderful dog who not only gave herself heart and soul to Aneeta [and received the same in return] but also touched the souls of many other people with her amazing character.
I would recommend this book to any animal lover, it will make you laugh, it will make you cry, but afterwards it will also leave you with the knowledge that you have been allowed a glimpse into this really special relationship.
This book is being sold to support two charities and so the author would like to encourage people to buy directly from her or from the publishers via PayPal (please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com) to ensure the money received goes towards the two causes she wants to support
