Mayor of the Dog Park, By: Anne Gilbert - Book Review
Dog abusers are punished by a group of six dog lovers who hold court, presided over by Eddie Doyle, designated Mayor of the Faux Paws dog park. Briefly the backgrounds of the four men and two women are discussed.
A vacant lot reclaimed by a city in Palm Beach County, Florida, the dog park named “Faux Paws” became a daily routine for designer dogs, pedigrees, hounds, mutts and their owners of various “human-breeds”
I must admit, as a disclaimer, I am a dog lover extraordinaire, so reading this book was like rolling on my back having my tummy scratched. As much as I have come to love and understand the wonders of “Man’s best friend,” I too become emotionally outraged when hearing about animal cruelty; especially when intentionally done. Therefore I could relate to the emotions and motivations of the human characters in Mayor of the Dog Park; to me the events seem as logical as a border collie retrieving a tennis ball. However for the sake of maintaining the impact of this story, I shall not tell any more about the circumstances that reveal themselves in Chapter 3.
There is a clever foreshadowing with respect to Eddie’s house, being a lavishly designed home built by one of South Florida’s prominent architects. “The three story great room was dominated by a massive Gothic style fireplace and walnut paneling. Probably its most interesting aspect was the ceiling with a myriad of stars painted on the ceiling,” author Anne Gilbert wrote. The room was specified by Eddie’s recollection of, when on a trip to London, he saw a drawing of the actual “Star Chamber” used in 15th Century England.
The Mayor of the Dog Park is a mature reading escape, enabling for quick character development of the “Snow-bird”
