Here is a heartwarming tale of how one dog showed a family the true meaning of Christmas.

Todd, the youngest of four children, has a developmental disability that keeps him at home on the farm with his mother and father. One special holiday season, Todd hears an ad on the radio from a shelter looking for temporary homes for their dogs during the holiday week. When Todd’s parents at last give in to his pleas for this charitable cause, the family is faced with yet another problem: an entire shelter full of dogs needing homes. Using his special charms and gifts of persuasion, Todd encourages his whole community to participate in the “Adopt a Dog for Christmas Program” and, more importantly, teaches his family the true meaning of goodwill.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Todd may be challenged intellectually, but his emotional abilities shine…Mark Bramhall captures the exuberance of Todd’s love for family and animals, blending it perfectly with the youth’s speech impediment in a way that conveys respect and reality. Bramhall also tunes in to Todd’s father’s pervasive sadness, which has never left him since his tour in Vietnam, during which his own beloved dog died waiting for him to come home. While there are a few tears during this production, there are more smiles of understanding and love, making it a perfect holiday audiobook.”

    " This was a short, easy to read story about a dog and a family. I especially connected with the story because much of the story was told through someone who had loved and lost a pet to the point that he'd decided he didn't want to put himself through that pain again. "
