[b:Orville: A Dog Story|15168|Orville A Dog Story |Haven Kimmel|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1166671569s/15168.jpg|17076] is a unique illustrated story . The book jacket describes it as a story about "lonesomeness, about barking, about getting free from chains, and about love". That pretty well sums it up! Excellent read for adults, dog lovers, and people who believe even old dogs can learn new tricks! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 061815955X, Hardcover)

A big, ugly dog is happy to meet a farmer and his wife who decide to give him a name and a home, but not so happy when they chain him to the barn. All Orville can do is bark to tell the world how unhappy he is, and the more he barks, the more he is left alone. But everything changes when Sally MacIntosh moves into the little house across the road and Orville falls in love.
A beautifully crafted text that blends wry humor with the poignant twang of a country-and-western song is accompanied by dreamy, spare watercolor-and-ink illustrations for a fresh, original picture book that will resonate with anyone who has ever felt lonely or misunderstood.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:25:17 -0400)

Chained alone in a barn by the couple he thought might give him a good home, a very ugly stray dog is miserable until a new neighbor moves in and he falls in love.
