Book Description

Dec 1 2005
Life's too Short to Be an Underdog. is the story of a boy and his dog.and another dog.and yet another one.well, several more after that.

Author Dave Smith boldly reveals the sometimes confusing, occasionally tragic, but always amusing history of the 'Smith Family Dog Curse". For so many years the family was denied in their attempts to cultivate a lasting bond with any dogs because of a series of mysterious events.

In the midst of the family's pain and heartache, one dog managed to beat the curse and became the inspiration of many spiritual insights for his beloved master. Dave opens up the family history book and invites you to laugh along, secretly hoping it doesn't cost him the vast family inheritance.

Life's too Short to Be an Underdog. is a book to share with friends, family, pet lovers, the criminally insane, and anyone else who knows how to read. It will bring smiles to faces of those who remember their own favorite doggie memories and challenge them to look for God's leading in the little things of life.even in the sometimes bizarre antics of a little dog named Ballpark.

5.0 out of 5 stars I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats! Jan. 4 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I must say that Dave Smith is a very entertaining writer. I truly hope that he contributes more to the literary world with other gems like this one. He has quite a knack for looking at the humorous side of everything, and then brings it into a spiritual realm in a very real, very meaningful manner. I would highly recommend anyone who enjoys pets to read the book, with a word of caution. As described in the synopsis, some of the family pets do, in fact, die. Tragic, I know, but quite a life lesson. Buy the book, you will not be disappointed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Move over Hemingway....there's a new sheriff in town... March 16 2006
By Bart Culpepper - Published on Amazon.com
I'm not sure that the title makes a lot of sense, because I'm not sure that Ernest Hemingway was ever in law enforcement....This is a very entertaining book. The stories are hilarious and will really connect with anyone who has ever owned dogs during their childhood. There's also a very good message within for people looking for the lighter side of Christianity. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone that needs something to remind them that walking the path is never easy, but that it can certainly be quite humorous.
