I just had to tell you I loved your book!!!!

I dont read anything...I don't really even bother with mags or anything.... but when I saw your book and Mom told me you had wrote it...I had an interest. I'm also a very slow reader...for my age that is.... I started reading your book in the afternoon Wednesday. and between school and work...I finished it was did such a spectacular job!!!! I was completely obsessed with the book from start to end, I couldn't keep myself away from it! I was reading it every chance that I got! Anyways... I enjoyed it so much I thought I would just write you a note and tell you how much

A memorable and original story
What a delightful book. A lighthearted, poignant, and often funny book that will appeal to readers of all ages. A memorable and original story. It showed how much people can benefit from a little help in the right direction, whether it comes from people or from dogs. We need more than food, water, and shelter in our lives. We also need companionship, love, and imagination, as this story so lovingly tells us.

A must if you love dogs,

What a great book. It moved me to tears in some places and laughter in others. If you love dogs youll love this book. It is refreshing to read the English language as it is meant to be, without any profanity. This book deals with real life issues of true importance in such a subtle gentle way. Issues of kindness, friendship, loyalty, generosity and spirit. I was left not with a sense of preaching or concrete, right or wrong answers, but rather a sense of responsibility to my fellow man. Long after I read the book I found myself wondering how I line up in my treatment and judgment of those around me. One more thing, after reading the book you become very careful of what you say around your dog.

A most delightful story full of humor, pathos, and drama. Codys escapades make this book most difficult to put down. One wants to read it from the first page to the last at one time. The young and old, and everyone in between, will love this heart-warming story.

Unlike most others who start a book which is so good that they
hate to put it down, well with me, I have great difficulty in
finishing a real good book. The codyman was one of these.

Each chapter had something which tugged at my heart and brought both laughter and tears. Cody eventually became a 4 legged human to me and the kind deeds to the troubled and less fortunate people made me think of how most of us slide through life championing our own causes. also, I must admit I thoroughly enjoyed the Codymans sarcastic wit and must commend the author for maintaining that snap to Codys dialogue. I look forward to the next publication from Linda, but must insist she buy the Kleenex tissue for the wimps in the crowd.

A jaunty tale and authentically Westie throughout. I found the story gently engaging The writing reflects an exquisite, matter-of-fact sensitivity to the intangible bonds of human/canine relationships.

This is a fun book! It made me laugh out loud, it made me cry.

The dog never does anything that any ordinary dog wouldn't do, yet the author takes us right into the mind of the dog and gives us a viewpoint that most people don't think of. That's what makes it so funny - yet so real! I actually look at my dog differently now! The book is written in short sections which makes it easy to pick up for short periods of time. Of course, I didn't always want to put it down after a short period of time! I read it quickly because it was so enjoyable.

The story was charming. It was easy to fall in love with the enterprising Cody and his adventures. There is an increasing demand for books for young readers and this one fills that void in an entertaining and charming manner. Adults and children will be entertained with this delightful read.
