"Teaser Tuesdays"

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This week I am reading "One Good Dog" by Susan Wilson. It is a novel and not a real story about a dog, nevertheless, the dog in the story plays a leading role, I think.
The fur between my shoulder blades rose even before I could thoroughly identify the scent. In a completely instinctive response, I growled. Low and warning. Not my usual style. It wasn't another dog trespassing into the restricted territory defined by the length of my leash; it was them. The boys. The ones who kept me and my parents in that cellar, dragging us out only to compete, or breed, or train. I could feel the pulse of hostility stir my heart. pg. 189 pb.


  1. Interesting. Is the story told from the dog's perspective? Good teaser too.

  2. Good teaser. Sounds like it might turn out to be a sad story, though.

  3. Sounds like a book to look into. New follower :)

  7. Terrific teaser--I hope you enjoy the book (it sounds as if you will).

  8. I've read books from a cat's POV and I think they are so good and different. This sounds like it's going to be a good one, too.
