Owning aSt. Bernard was always a dream of mine, and after reading about sweet,wonderful Jeff, I want one even more. I laughed and cried, and am stillsurprised at what an impact this little book had on me. My husband evenloved it too, and hes not one to get all gushey over human interestor animal stories. I loved this book, and in fact, I read it three timesalready. The author, Summer Accardo gives her readers such adescriptive account of Jeffs antics, that I felt like I was there withhim. I wanted to hug him, play with him and even take care of him whenhe was feeling under the weather. Saint Bernards, in my opinion, are theperfect family dog, and Ive heard some amazing stories about them. Myfavorite part of the book was where Jeff, in all his glory, snatched aslab of ribs right off the counter and brought them into the authorsdaughters bedroom to eat. The part that I though was so funny was whenSummers daughter screamed, hes eating his ribs in here! I dont knowwhy I was so tickled at this, but I was. It made me laugh, but I didfeel sorry for Summer and her daughter, since they just got newcarpeting in her daughters bedroom. This book is a page-turner, and youwill not be able to put it down. You will love this book, and it willforever endear sweet Saint Bernard Jeff in your hearts forever!A Saint Named Jeff is a touching, funny and highly entertaining true short story about a magnificent Saint Bernard named Jeff. The story chronicles Jeffs life from when his new family picked him up from the airport, as well as his sometimes goofy, and even frightening behavior that were integral components of his personality.
