Sit Stay Love Book Review

SUMMARY:  Pro baseball pitcher Cal Crawford is not a dog guy.  When he inherits his deceased mother's elderly dog, Tippy, he's quick to call on a pet-sitting service.
     Gina isn't thrilled to be a dog sitter when her aspirations lie in the classroom.  Furthermore, she can't abide the unfriendly Cal, a man with all the charm of a wet towel.  But with no other prospects and a deep love for all things canine, she takes the job caring for Tippy.
     As Gina travels through Cal's world with Tippy in tow, she begins to see Cal in a different light.  Gina longs to show Cal the God-given blessings in his live that have nothing to do with baseball or fame.  This pro athlete, along with an out-of-work teacher and an overweight, geriatric dog, is about to get a lesson in love . . . Tippy style.

REVIEW:  This book is a cute, lighthearted story about a professional baseball player who inherits his mother's elderly dog, Tippy, and Gina, the girl he hires to take care of Tippy.  It is a fairly quick read that kept my attention the whole time.  I like how Cal eventually comes to care for Tippy and how Tippy captivates the media with her cuteness. One of my favorite parts was the beep ball game.  Reading about how Cal had to use his other senses instead of his eyes to play a game of baseball with a team of blind and seeing-impaired kids made me laugh out loud. 
     If you are looking for a fun book that will make you laugh and, possibly cry a little bit, this is the book for you.  I think you might enjoy it.
