Kurzbeschreibung

26. Mai 2014
We've all done it-sat there and wondered what our canine companions were thinking while staring at the television with us during a ball game. Ponder no more! Irrepressible golden retrievers Parker and Dixie Ames have made it their mission to take you inside the dugout for a dog's-eye view of the innings and outings of the great game of softball. Assisted by their Siberian husky pal Lucy McMan-West, an obliging cast of canine cohorts, a chicken, a turtle, and a llama named LaRue, the dynamic duo reminds us that softball is not about winning or losing-it's about finding the shortest route to the concession stand. Filled with quirky explanations and colorful photo illustrations, Digging for Home is a tasty ballpark treat that's packed with heart, hilarity, and plenty of doggone good fun.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A doggone good book! 4. Juni 2014
Von MB - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
When Parker Ames, Dixie Ames and Lucy McMan-West put their collective canine minds together, there is nothing that this trio can’t accomplish. Best known for their considerable ball handling skills and ability to cajole treats from their human companions (even after evidence of their creative gardening projects have been discovered), these canines now add the job of author to their already impressive resumes.

Digging for Home is a lighthearted guide to the world of women’s softball as seen through the eyes of these three delightful dogs. Having grown tired of simply watching games from their perch on the couch, Parker, Dixie, and Lucy thought it was high time that they shared their perspective of their beloved sport. While tempted to replant several azaleas they dug up looking for bones, tennis balls, and a collection of wine corks, they pushed those thoughts aside, hacked into their moms’ computers, and began typing. The result of their efforts is a charming, witty and funny romp, jam-packed with photos of the home team and pinch hitters. Together they provide readers with the real rules of the game and clear explanations of terminology designed to make both canines and humans alike more knowledgeable about women’s softball.

Wonderful on its own, Digging for Home is made even better by the inclusion of the first chapter of Lynn Ames’s book in progress, Bright Lights of Summer. Set in the late 1930’s and 1940’s, readers are introduced to Theodora “Dizzy” Hosler and her quest to join the World Champion P.B.S.W. Ramblers softball team. The story is told via a series of conversations between Dizzy and interviewer Julie Newsome. Immediately engaging, readers will quickly become enamored with Dizzy, softball, and this tumultuous period in history. The inclusion of photographs taken during the period of well-known players such as Dot Wilkinson, Snookie Doyle, Kay Rohrer, and Estelle “Ricki” Caito are a wonderful addition and further encourage the reader to become immersed in both the story and the time period.

Digging for Home gets four very enthusiastic paws up. Grab a snack and read it to the canines and humans you love. You might even be able to get your dog to tell you what really happened to your favorite pair of shoes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The ultimate canine take on women's baseball 13. Juni 2014
Von VelvetLounger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Ever wondered what your canine companions are thinking when they watch the game with you? Now you can find out.

Digging fort home is a wonderful, light hearted and very informative little book about the 3 best friends view of softball. As well as being the agent Lucy seems mainly to contribute the humor and pose for pictures, Dixie is clearly the player, while Parker, the ever steady Parker, holds them all together.

I am British and softball confuses us over here. We call it rounders and play it at school, so the fascination eludes us. But it was amazingly helpful to have a dogs eye-view of the game. I particularly liked the 13 simple rules... I think I can already remember 6. And I can see how the tortoise might be a great secret weapon on the farm team.

More than anything what comes across is the wit, humor and delight of the ghost writiers, Lynn Ames, Ann McMann and Salem West - and their adoration of their pups. Adoration that clearly goes both ways. Those of us lucky enough to watch their interplay on Facebook will recognize the characters of Parker, Dixie and Lucy from many delightful conversations had online. And I am please to see the Black Amex Card in evidence.

Of course for those of a slightly more serious disposition, the inclusion of the first chapter of Lynn's next book, "Bright Lights of Summer", due out in the autumn, is an added bonus. It looks intriguing and I can't wait to get hold of the real thing.

This may be the only time we ever review a book by three dogs, and mean that without an insult involved. But of course the pups may write another book, Spenser Moran and Lilli Prescott might reply in kind. who knows where this sub genre may take us.

So if you fancy a charming, silly, soppy and delightful doggy take on the addictive world of women's softball, with the delightful graphics of McMan, the storytelling of Ames and a soupcon of wit from West, this is your book.
