Jordan: My Grand Dog by Regina Long Southall is a heartwarming story that follows the life of a dog named Jordan. Jordan, a cute little Yorkshire terrier, was adopted by his owner, Andrea, when he was six weeks old. Having a home made the little dog happy because it meant he would be loved, and he was given a name. When he was first adopted, he had to sleep in a cage because he wasn't trained. Later on, he went to six weeks of obedience school, and got to roam freely around the house. Jordan loves playing with his toys and being outside, as well as visiting his grandparents. But Jordan gets older, and he doesn't play as much anymore. He gets very sick. Will he be able to overcome his illness?
I really enjoyed reading Jordan: My Grand Dog by Regina Long Southall. The book is very heartwarming although very sad, and I was in tears by the end of it. This book was well written, and I liked that it was from the perspective of Jordan. This book would be great for people who have recently got a dog, because it shows how to look after a dog and what it likes. It would also be a good book for someone whose dog has recently died, because the last page is very consoling when it talks about how a dog never really leaves their owner. The pictures of Jordan are really cute. The author did a very good job of putting themselves in Jordan's mind to write this book. I would recommend this story to everyone who likes dogs.
