by Susan J. Lustig

Shilo, a golden retriever, writes email to his net pal in an humorous & touching color-illustrated book great for the whole family.
There is more to being a dog than looking cute, chasing squirrels or figuring out how to get along with the resident cat - as the "mom" of Shilo, a rescued Golden Retriever, discovers when she uncovers a mysterious folder in her computer filled with nearly two years' worth of e-mails - from Shilo to Max, her sister's dog. We see this world through his eyes and interpreted through his canine sensibilities. Shilo's underlying worry is that perhaps, like his first family, his new family may not want him anymore, that they too could suddenly disappear one day. This emotional experience gives his world a sympathetic perspective and forces him to deal with some very tough issues of his own. It is his surprising discussions with his friend, sage and mentor, a Basset Hound named Sammy that gives Shilo's stories a mysterious twist.
