Amazon Description:
This Labrador Dog Story begins with Channel and Bezel Sini, ten-year-old spokesgirls for Dogs Forever - a Dog rescue. They knew their involvement in an advertising campaign for homeless dogs would be exciting. But not until they adopted a feisty dog, a labrador named Clover did they realize just what a rollercoaster ride it would be.

One night prior to the start of the campaign tour, the twins are awakened by Clover talking in her sleep and making running motions with her legs. Bezel and Channel wake up Clover who explains that she was separated from her dog family on Christmas Eve when a terrifying outlaw she calls Red Eyes tried to capture them in their home in the Chicago trainyard. Clover was successful in luring Red Eyes away from her family, but in the process she hopped on a freight train headed for New York City.

The girls eventually discover that Clover is one of the Cloverleaf Dogs, a line of dogs who, legend has it, rescued people and pets during the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.

The Dogs Forever advertising campaign serves two purposes for Clover and the twins. The first is Dogs Forever’s goal of raising awareness about homeless dogs. And the second is more personal. When they get to the last destination, Chicago, Bezel and Channel have the personal goal of helping Clover find her dog family.

What surprises and frightens Clover and the twins right out of the gate is that they are followed from city to city on the tour by a man in the crowds. As it turns out, Red Eyes did not give up when Clover escaped from him in the Chicago trainyard, and he is determined to capture her again.
Opinions:
This book is geared towards children, but I think an older audience might enjoy it, too. The story is easy to follow and has enjoyable characters – such as Clover, talking dog. When Clover gets separated from her family due to an unsavory man, she must find her way back. With the help of two twins, they have to figure what happened. The twins learn a few lessons along the way. The story also brings about the importance in responsibility, caring, and loyalty. The story leaves off for another adventure. Children who like adventures and dogs should like this book.
