    Alien Dogs Rule This was a fun story to read, it was so innovative The first two chapters had me wondering if I could endure this story, but after reading on, Chapter 3 really drew me to the story of Clem, a member of the alien clan known as Kaxians, from the planet Kax They came to this earth specifically to be miners of jex which I never really understood what it was, but maybe it was really prehistoric bones Their competitors were from Nique, also in pursuit of the treasured jex What s the difference between these alien dogs Size The Kaxians are large breed dogs that don t like the smaller breed obnoxious Niques Now, I ve been a dog fancier for generations, and I want to know if my dachshunds are from Nique They certainly have big dog attitudes They ll even stand their ground against the vicious wild badger So, there must be another planet out in the universe that generated dachshunds But on with the story of Clem, who as a pup on earth is abandoned in the mountains of southern California He is only six months old, and he s so very upset to be separated for his parents and siblings Clem is very giftedhe has mind control sometimes I know that my dogs have it He can sway humans as well as his fellow Kaxians This author has presented a very intoxicating story from Clem s perception It is filled with affection from humans, and the love that every dog seeks This is why, when one is seeking a loving companion, first check your local humane shelter and see which dog looks you in the eye and says, I can love you than any other dog here The author, Cherise Kelley, should be very proud of the story she has created She s done an extraordinary job Highly recommend for adults as well younger readers.

    Dog Aliens 1 Raffle s Name by Cherise Kelley is an amusing tale narrated by Raffles, currently living in his 99th dog body You see, Raffles is not from Earth In fact, NO dog originally is from Earth Aliens from two planets came to Earth eons ago to mine a substance needed on their home planets a substance completely unknown and unnecessary to humans This element is called Jex by the aliens The two alien species, and their home planets, are the Kaxians from Kax and the Niques from Nique Humans unwittingly differentiate between the two species by characterizing the Kaxians as big dogs and the Niques as little dogs The two species do not like each other, and don t miss an opportunity to annoy each other, especially when their humans aren t nearby Even when their humans ARE nearby, the alien language sounds just like barking to humans, so the provocation continues unabated.This story is considerably entertaining than the previous paragraphs might lead you to believe As a matter of fact, the primary purpose of the book is to encourage people to adopt dogs from their local Humane Society shelters It accomplishes that by artfully weaving into the story line several visits to the dog shelter Consequently this story is not only entertaining, but has a very serious message for its readers The author very cleverly creates an authentic, if fictional, interplay between the humans, the big dogs, the little dogs, the Jex mining operation, and the candid diversity in how different people treat their pets Fortunately for these fictional alien dogs, if they die they are reborn as a new puppy Unfortunately for non fictional dogs, when they die they stay dead This entertaining tale leaves the reader with an enhanced awareness of the plight of many dogs in the U.S and the world That aspect of the story is a sad one, but one the author hopes to change by increasing public awareness I strongly recommend this book for any human with a heart for dogs, regardless of the reader s age.

    I was sent a review copy of Dog Aliens 1 and although it really wasn t my kind of story, it was unique and creative and I decided it deserved a decent rating anyway for a couple of reasons.First, the book is well written I ve seen enough books by indie authors with poor grammar, spelling, and punctuation that I notice and appreciate it when a book is well written.The second reason I ve given the book a good rating despite the fact that I wasn t really into it is because I imagine that it would appeal to a certain audience It would not be fair for me to rate it poorly just because I didn t really like the subject matter I think that hard core dog lovers will probably find this book to be cute and entertaining, so it s worth a look if you fall into that category.To better clarify who I think would enjoy this book, I suggest the following criteria my apologies to Jeff Foxworthy If you dress your dog up in frilly outfits or silly costumes and or think it s cute when others do you might like this book If you can easily spend hours having a conversation with your dog you might like this book If you order an entire separate meal specifically to take home to your dog when you eat out you might like this book If a story about dogs being aliens from other planets who are here having adventures as they mine earth for a resource that allows them to bioregenerate sounds like good fun to you you ll definitely like this book

    Dog Aliens book 1 Raffle s Name is a good, fun book that every dog lover should pick up and read I teach 5th grade and it will definitely be a new addition to my class library but adults will also enjoy the story for the following reasons.Have you ever wondered why your dog might go to a window and bark when nothing is there Have you ever dragged your dog away while they sniffed the 50th bush on your walk Finally, have you ever stopped what you were doing in order to pay some attention to your dog If you found your head nodding to any of these questions you aren t alone And it appears, neither are the humans Now, this book isn t a how to book or even a deeper look inside your dog , instead, Cherise Kelley has created a fantastical story filled with space travel, bickering between big dogs and little dogs , and the reason why all dogs are here on Earth and no, it isn t to be there when we get home from work or school.I was hooked from the start when a group of the big dogs were mapping out their plan for mining Jex the resource that the dogs are here for and the ensuing confrontation with the little dogs and I didn t put the book down untilwell, I suggest you pick up a copy of the book if you want to know the rest I am looking forward to reading the next book in this great new series about man s and woman s best friend.

    I forgot how I first learned about this book, but I m so glad it crossed my path I am a dog lover 100% Have grown up with them and have had my Keeshond Leo since he was 6 weeks old he will be 13 at the end of June 2013 This book about dog aliens and their intelligence totally reminded me of Leo and his intelligence Therefore the book was engaging and funny Especially the interactions between the Kaxians big dogs and the Niques small dogs It reminds me of a crazy story a friend and I made back for our middle school english class about caterpillars vs worms of optimal intelligence Cappies vs Wormies that lived on Earth unbeknownst to humans I really hope this author finds the time and funds in order to keep writing about the dog aliens For those who might think that this is a childish portrayal of dogs, it really is not It is a well thought out, and yes silly funny, story But it also makes you wonder about how smart your dog really is And that in itself is fun to do since we I m assuming from conversations with other dog people all wish we could understand our furry friends better.

    I loved this story because of the pacing and that it is about dogs I enjoyed how the author kept the writing simple, yet as mentioned in a previous review, engaging The pacing was really great overall, but I felt it was especially good between the exchanges between the large dogs and small dogs If you are a dog lover and want a book that is entertaining, then you will want to give this one a read

    Alien Dogs 1 Raffle s Name is a delightfully innovative story about a dog who s an alien from outer space With other Kaxians Clem s mission is to dig for jex so each day he escapes from his yard to help his friends mine the mineral and transport it to a space ship But, one day he s late returning and the hole is discovered Instead of being reprimanded his master abandons him and he s left to try and find his way back to his Kaxian friends What begins is an exciting adventure as Clem not only discovers his telepathic powers, but bonds with loving owners who change his name The well written and imaginative plot sends a strong message about the abuse and abandonment of animals Even visitations by potential owners to the Animal Shelter seem geared to the adoption of younger or smaller animals rather than the older, well trained but unloved larger dogs brought in by animal catchers Although in this story Kaxians older dogs and Niques smaller dogs are born again, there is the tragic realization that animals not adopted are put to sleep With a mood that seems bleak and hopeless at times it makes the reader want to go to an Animal Shelter and save one of the Kaxians Cleverly Cherise Kelley weaves the story of Neya, a female wolf who dreams about a romp in the woods with Clem Raffle into the main plot leaving an opening for a romance in future books in the series This is fascinating because, although Kaxians have a strain of wolf in them, they are not trusted by wolf packs Laced with large doses of humor the author ingeniously intertwines elements of faith, hope, friendship and love into a plot that has danger stalking the alien dogs from an abusive master to jealous rivals The plot progresses quickly and never slows as events unfold, making it a riveting tale.In this narrative the personalities of dogs and cats come to life and seem human than animal with all their idiosyncrasies Clem haunted by his abandonment at 6 months is considerate, loyal and brave A dog with a big heart who tries to please the owners he bonds with, he tries desperately to get along with his housemate Puritan, a old, bitter and hateful cat who spitefully tries to antagonize him Developing psi powers, the intelligent and perceptive Kaxian can even project images into the minds of humans who don t know of the alien invasion But his abilities excel beyond his expectation as he not only transmits mental moving pictures and messages but can detect emotions through colours His friend Lido is a portly but loveable English bulldog in love with Skil, an easy going and naive black lab Fidetz, the mean spirited Chihuahua like all the Niques holds a grudge, claiming their mining rights on earth were stolen by the larger Kaxians Like all Niques she s a pest, never confronting her adversary but only nipping and barking to make life miserable All these characters and are realistic and entertaining, adding energy and drama to this fascinating tale.Although the story is geared to a young children s audience I thoroughly enjoyed Alien Dogs 1 and will not only look for the next book in the series but will recommend it to others.
