I’m Listening With A Broken Ear

This is going to be my first book review so please be patient with me.  When Corinne told me how much she enjoyed reading ‘I’m Listening With A Broken Ear’, I told her I just had to read it.  But you know her, right? She wasn’t content with me being a reading dog, she wanted me to write about it too! Don’t you think this is grounds for me to call in the Animal Rights Activists?

But seriously, when I read Vicky S Kaseorg’s delightful story of how she and her daughter found and reluctantly rescued a dying dog, I knew I’d want to write about it.

At first Vicky tries hard not to take on Honeybun – because her family cannot afford the time or the money it will cost and they already have a dog. Fate, Vicky’s daughter and Honeybun have other ideas!

Vicky takes us through her struggle of helping Honeybun (so named by her daughter) through severe health issues,  aggression and fear which are all part of her history of being abandoned.  It is as much a story of Vicky as it is of her dog.  At every turn, she is tempted to give up and give Honeybun away to Animal Control who will certainly euthanize her.  However, help keeps coming to Vicky in unexpected and seemingly miraculous ways.  Honeybun teaches Vicki and her family a lot of lessons in faith, unconditional love and the great truth that no one is really beyond redemption!

Told with great humor, interspersed with Vicky’s prayers, it is definitely a wonderfully uplifting read.  This is truly a book for all dog lovers.

  1. How I look forward to your posts every Wed you handsome dude ! Ofcourse I will read that book . It sounds so much fun just like you :))

  2. Written so well ! not really a dog lover – but you touched my heart ! thanks for sharing !

  3. Pablo…coming from you, it must be a good read. Tell Corinne to slow down a bit…trying to catch up with her reading recommendations and failing miserably.

  4. Well done Pablo – review incredibly well written. How many books does Corinne read? I’m exhausted just thinking about that.

  5. Pablo, You are really a fun puppy, and that was quiet an interesting review. Shall add it to my ‘list’ 😉
    Woof, woof,
    Laxmi 🙂

  6. Pablo, this book is surely for someone like me. And my list of books to read is increasing day by day!

  7. Pablo, you not only read books, you have a blog and you write book reviews too! You are making me fall in love with you!! 😀

  8. The stories of dogs have always warmed my heart like nothing else!

  9. hahha this coming from U Pablo is so cute 😉 Mwaah <3
    and this book must be a treasure to dog lovers!

  10. Would certainly grab a copy.. Thanks for sharing..

  11. So many wonderful books to read and so little time on hand 🙂 thanks Pablo for this one.

  12. Pablo, this was a fabulous first review! But, Corinne really puts a lot of pressure on you; I suggest you come and stay with me…I’ll pamper you a lot! 😛

  13. This i such a wonderful post pablo 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  14. HI Pablo, What a lovely review! Corinne must be so proud of you.
    And no, I must disagree. If Corinne forces you to write, that is not grounds for calling in the Animal Rights activists. If, however, she forces you to consort with cats, you have grounds for complaint.

  15. Cute! But dog books usually are too sad for me…

  16. Pablo, this is such a lovely review ! Touched my heart !

  17. Hugs Pablo. It must’ve been hard to read about a dying dog. What’s exemplary is how Honeybun went on to teach about love and faith. After all, that’s why we humans place so much trust in dogs right? You have such a tall order to fulfill and we love you for taking this on. Keep wagging 🙂


  18. Great review, Pablo 🙂

  19. It has a catchy title too.

  20. Pablo.. I am going to have to check this out for Heidi, Mollie, and Shadow. And if they let me, I might read it too!

  21. Loved your book review, Pablo. What a well read doggie you are! You’d enjoy befriending my Malamute, Loup A. Graham who has Facebook and his own blog http://www.loupslifelessons.blogspot.com He only blogs occasionally, mostly because he is too busy jumping in mud puddles and I won’t let him on the computer with muddy paws.

  22. Huh!! and now i meet a reading dog! A hello to you pablo. 🙂

    And i loved your review. 🙂

  23. Wow! That’s such a precise and wonderful review, Pablo! I’d love to read the book! Vicky sounds very kind-hearted. Thank you for introducing me to the book!
