chihuahuatooIf you like “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” and the Buddies movies, you will enjoy this story of a lonely dog looking for a family.  One problem — she’s a ghost.

The Fastener family inherits a vacation home. Only their golden retriever Homer can see Sophie, the ghost of the dog who belonged to their famous ancestor, a movie star.  Homer befriends Sophie and soon he and the Fastener children are working together to persuade their parents that Sophie is real and that they cannot sell the house and abandon her.

I have a copy to give away!  Send me an email with “Sophie” in the subject line and tell me what you want to make sure to get done before the end of the summer.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only.)  I’ll pick a winner at random on August 20.  Good luck!
