I discovered this series fairly recently, and only thanks to the fact that several volumes were left clinging to the nearly-bare manga shelves during Borders' closeout sale {wry grin}. But I enjoyed those volumes very much, and when I found out that Better World Books (see the BC affiliates page under the "store" tab) was having a sale on purchases of 4 or more paperbacks, it was all the incentive I needed to pick up the first volume of the series. This one's got Suguri's mixed-breed Lupin on the cover, and a black lab on the back.

This book introduces us to the main characters and shows how Suguri wound up working at the pet shop in the first place, with a charming mix of cute dogs and of the real-life concerns of caring for them. [Hint: there are quite a few panels dealing with poop and pee, both of which our heroine seems surprisingly comfortable with. But then, she *is* crazy for dogs!] There are some potentially scary bits, too - naive Suguri tends to be too trusting - but things generally work out.

Oh, do have some tissues on hand as well; there's a very bittersweet story here about a girl who's thinking about a replacement for her faithful but aging dog... {sniffle!}

[There's a TV Tropes page here with entertaining info - but do watch out for spoilers.]

I have been wanting to get into this series for so long! I am so happy this is in the box. Of course I am going to replace it with something else. This is an awesome book box!

This was fantastic. I really love some anime art. This is not as detailed as I would like, but definitely beautiful drawings. I plan on releasing this at the Vets office tomorrow.
