KARR: Unleashed Speaks on Romeo, Juliet, Petie & Me



Howdy!  No Labels here!

It looks like the Random Robin has once again paid a visit.  Let’s see what’s in store this time around.

Romeo, Juliet, Petie & Me
by Melinda Matthews
Amazon | Amazon Author Page

Before I get into my take on this work, I’m feeling a bit nostalgic.  As I read this, I thought of the first dog I ever had.  Her name was Beautie.  My favorite things to do was to rub her caramel coat and play with her.  She was also a very fierce protector (of humans but not so much of Barbie dolls).  After she died, I had a couple of more dogs after that, but none of them were like Beautie.

Something is magical about a bond between a human and her pet.

This short story is about the bond between a little girl and her collie, Petie, who saved her from danger on two occasions.  I really loved the visuals in the story, especially when the author spoke about the farm. I could actually smell the freshness of the hay and identify with the frozen fear the girl felt when she was face to face with the bull.

Parts of this story reminded me of home, since I’m originally from a small town in southern Mississippi as well, so her depiction of the life during that time was very realistic, and I was able to identify certain quirks of Southern life.

This work is a beautifully ode to animal lovers.  Even if you don’t own a pet, this story is definitely one that warms the heart.

It’s time for the bird to bring in the stars!  10 out of 10, that is!
