    The Pug List by Alison Hodgson is a true story about before and after, about learning to live well again after a traumatic event. In this case, the event was a devastating house fire set by an arsonist. Alison's family of five lost just about everything they owned except the clothes on their backs.

    As Alison tells the story, she shares the lessons she learned along the way, giving relevant family history to help readers understand. She also shares her heart - what she was thinking and feeling and struggling with most as her family recovered from their ordeal and worked to rebuild their life.

    Readers meet the pug about two-thirds of the way through the book and learn his role in this chapter of the family's story. Dog lovers will especially appreciate this part of the book. The rest of the book will encourage anyone living in an "after" situation. I received my complimentary eCopy of The Pug List from the publisher in exchange for this honest review.

    Imagine awakening to your smoke alarm going off. Imagine, too, that there have been so many malfunctions with your home's smoke alarm in the past, that it is easy to believe this is just another false alarm. That is what happened to the Hodgson Family in the wee hours one fateful morning.

    When the alarm sounded, Alison and Paul Hodgson did decide to awaken their family, along with a house guest, grab the dog, and leave their home. But because there had been so many past false alarms, they didn't grab anything on the way out--other than Alison's computer, which she picked up as an afterthought. They really believed they would march outside for a few minutes, only to discover, once again, it was a malfunction, and there was no fire.

    Unfortunately, this time, there truly was a fire, and their entire house was soon engulfed in flames. Alison and her family were left with literally only the night clothes on their backs, along with her computer. Thinking this was another faulty alarm, most of them hadn't grabbed shoes, and were barefoot.

    In this true story, the author shares what it is like to suddenly live without a home, or possessions. She speaks of the generosity of others, but also how difficult it was for them to accept their kindness. Even though they had complete insurance coverage, getting the money was a long, uphill battle. Discovering how the fire started was a shock. They were even more startled when they realized their insurance company wanted to accuse Alison, or Paul, of starting the fire.

    The Hodgsons all thank God that no lives were lost. However, the family members each suffered with post traumatic stress as a result of the fire. It was especially hard to see their children struggle, or have difficulties. That is why in the midst of this life changing upheaval, Alison and Paul gave in to the many pleas from their youngest child, Eden, to get a Pug dog.

    Finding a Pug also turned out to be quite an adventure itself, with lots of ups and downs. Getting, Outrageous Oliver, who is a character in his own right, has involved more commitment than they ever dreamed of. However, he also brought healing to the family, especially Eden, along with lots of laughter. The bond Oliver and Eden have is endearing, and rare.

    What this family went through in the aftermath of their home burning is eye opening. Alison captures their resulting thoughts, actions and disappointments. This is a sweet family, and it is easy to see how what happened to them, could happen to anyone. As John Bradford is credited with saying, "but for the grace of God...." It was also uplifting to read of this family's faith in the aftermath of such tragedy. I enjoyed this 5-star book, and recommend it to anyone who likes true stories, or dog tales.

    The publisher has provided bookreadingtic with a complimentary copy of The Pug List, through Zondervan Publishing for the purpose of review. I have not been compensated in any other manner. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required, or influenced, to give anything but an honest appraisal.

    An orphaned pug comes into an animal loving little girls life, just when things could not be worse in her family. Will this little dog help keep the family together?

    well written and funny at times, it is well worth the read. It is a true story about the Hodgsons life! If you love animals then this is the story for you. Any dog lover can not be with out this chapter book. A christen book that points , that all comes from God. I read this book in one night when I could not sleep and liked it very much. A very heartwarming and hilarious story.

    I got this book from book look to review.

    With honesty, humor, and a heaping dose of hope, Alison Hodgson takes the reader right into the heart and soul of her family as they process and heal from the trauma of an arsonist burning down their home. I've had the pleasure of hearing Alison speak on her experiences in person, and I'm thrilled I can now thrust The Pug List into the hands of those I know would value her story as much as I do. Calling this memoir "heartwarming" doesn't seem to do it justice. Your heart will hurt in certain parts at the injustice and sorrow of the Hodgsons' tragedy,but it will also be full with hope, faith, and a clear sense of what's really important in life. At the end of the book, if you're like me, you'll immediately tell a friend to read it, and then hop online to find pictures of Outrageous Oliver.
