   I have read a few other Patricia MacLachlan books and loved those but I was unsure  of a book with a dog on the cover.  I like dogs but I don't always like dog books.  This dog book was very good. Zoe's mom rescues Great Pyrenees dogs and her dad is a vet.  But, the main story isn't about dogs but about friendship and helping others.  Zoe, Alice and Phillip are children in the family.  They  and the rescued dogs  (in their own ways)help the little boy next door who does not speak.
