Wonderful descriptions and sense of place - and excellent with the emotions. I just loved this story. Wonderful. I felt like I WAS Jones. :)

A lovely story of hope out of the midst of despair. I liked the expression, “hair the colour of my favourite dog pellets” - putting yourself inside the head of Jones.

Loved the story. The adventures in scents were very doglike. :)
Good job with the POV and flashback, and loved the happy ending. This probably hit a soft spot, as my story also revolves around a shelter.
YESSSS!! This ending didn't disappoint me at all. I really enjoyed this. Very well done.

Love it. Love it! I like how you slowly reveal each little detail moving toward a wholly satisfying ending.
I had a good feeling about the reserved sign-and so glad!
Happy story, I needed one today, thanks!
Lovely story with a happy ending.

Very good, and I especially loved some of the descriptive words (freckles that reminded him of dog treats, etc). Well done.

This is my favorite entry this week, I was so moved when Ben turned up to reclaim his old best friend. Congrats!

"Pungent rat holes, ragged old socks, fresh duck droppings, old burger wrappers. Each day was a great adventure." - Good stuff, congrats on your EC.
