The Bark Before Christmas - Laurien Berenson
The Bark Before Christmas Although I've certainly heard of this series, I've never actually read it.

I enjoyed the information about how dog shows work, as I went to a dog show a few months ago and didn't understand the process. The plot was solid, but unfortunately get bogged down and as it went on, I found myself flipping through pages.  If you edited out all the bits about the MC's 2 year old, Aunt Peg, and everyone blaming the MC for the dog going missing and demanding that she find the dog, the book would only be about 80 pages long.
 
So, just an okay book but didn't float my boat.
