Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2009 Kids' List
“Dessa Dean hasn't been able to make herself step off the porch of the Colorado mountain cabin she shares with her father since her mother died. Then, a big fudge-colored dog arrives and things start to change. A beautifully written story about honoring the past and moving into the future, The Leanin' Dog is a sure bet.”
-- Trish Brown, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA


Description

More than anything, Dessa Dean needed a friend. A friend to love and confide in, a friend with whom she could share her heart. A friend who would delight in all the beauty and joy and fun of Christmas, only four days away.

Hope had just about run out, but then . . . there came a scratchin' at the door and Dessa Dean's life was forever changed.
