The Dog That Whispered by Jim Kraus

Professor Wilson Steele thinks it's too late to have a family---but his mother disagrees. When she gives him a black lab named Thurman, she insists the dog whispered to her about grandchildren. Wilson thinks it's hogwash. But he is spending more time with widow Emily and her kids. Could Thurman be encouraging him?

Publisher's Description

Bestselling author Jim Kraus returns with a heartwarming tale about a dog who has people convinced he can talk.

Wilson Steele is a single professor and Vietnam veteran who likes living alone, insisting it's too late for him to have a family. His mother disagrees. When she impulsively adopts a rescued black lab mix, she insists Thurman is special, and has whispered of the coming of grandchildren. Wilson brushes the notion off as fantasy. When his mother learns of her retirement community's 'no pets' policy, she forces Wilson to take the lovable dog. Wilson notices Thurman's growls do sound like words, but he knows he's just projecting his own thoughts on the animal. If Wilson is talking to neighbors on their walks, and spending time with Emily, a widow with three children, it isn't because Thurman encouraged him. After all, everyone knows dogs can't talk...can they?

Editorial Reviews

Kraus makes Thurman's thoughts come to life in a way that is believable for a dog--altruistic, loyal, simplistic and honest. While the idea of a dog talking is obviously far-fetched, this novel is fun and hits on important issues, namely the mental health of veterans. The Dog That Whispered is a fast yet thought-provoking read.—RT Book Reviews
"Kraus, well known for his animal stories (The Dog That Saved Stewart Coolidge), charms fans again with his latest canine tale...This sweet novel is for readers who love tales of sentient pets, or just well-told, simple stories of redemption and forgiveness."—Publishers Weekly
"This novel is fun and hits on important issues, namely the mental health of veterans. The Dog That Whispered is a fast yet thought-provoking read."—RT Book Review on The Dog That Whispered
"...charming novel...."—Publishers Weekly on The Dog That Talked to God
"Kraus is good."—Publishers Weekly on The Cat That God Sent
"The Dog That Talked to God is a moving and powerful read, inspirational long after the last page has been turned."—New York Journal of Books on The Dog That Talked to God
