This uplifting true story about a dog named Oliver and his family offers hope and inspiration for consumers who want to be entertained and find a little respite from the news of our day.

"What if a wheezing, sneezing, allegedly house-trained, ticking time bomb of an orphan pug is the key to helping a family feel at home again, after an arsonist set their house--and life--on fire? If you asked me, I would have said it's a bad idea; we can do better. Unfortunately no one asked me, and Pug List is my family's story."

Writer and speaker Alison Hodgson never asked to be made an expert in the etiquette of perilous times. But when an arsonist singlehandedly turned her family's home into a crime scene overnight, she found herself taking a crash course.

What compelled an arsonist to target their family? And how does a family go about rebuilding a broken life? Enter Alison's seven-year-old daughter, Eden, who has cooked up a brilliant, unexpected plan to make everything right again, and his name is Oliver.

The Pug List is a heart-warming, hilarious true story about hope, grace, and the healing power of dogs. Combining humor and wisdom, Hodgson presents not only an entertaining and uplifting read, but the tools to help families cope with tragedy.
