This story opened up with Denise Solters, a disabled woman, in search of the perfect puppy that would go through training to be her Service Dog in the coming months and years. It started off with her telling us that she specifically picked Jetta out of her litter and had her training start sooner than most Service Dogs receive theirs. In the beginning, Denise worried that if Jetta didn’t work out in her training and didn’t learn what was to be expected of a Service Dog, she’d have to start from scratch again. This wasn’t something she really wanted to do and she hoped for the best over the course of Jetta’s training.
From the Prelude of the story on, we switched the point of view to be that of Jetta’s for the rest of the storytelling. Ms. Solters wrote it in a humorous fashion since everything was done through Jetta’s eyes for the narrative. The story was cute and even at times funny because you can almost picture Jetta as a puppy learning things for the first time.
I have to say that I didn’t realize the book would be written through the puppy’s eyes, but Ms. Solters did it in such a way that I thought it was adorable and I enjoyed reading it. I even think it would be a great story to read to your children or have them read it to you instead. Overall, it was a good read and I loved seeing Jetta going through her training to be Ms. Solters’ Service Dog.
