FoxTale Book Shoppe says
In The Dogs Buried Over the Bridge, nationally syndicated columnist Rheta Grimsley Johnson uses a parade of beloved dogs to take readers on a colorful journey. It's not really a dog book in the Old Yeller sense; it's a personal story that uses dogs as metaphors for love, loss, and life.
