The Best Puppy Ever: Now this one made me think! 5/5 The Wharf Cat's Mermaid: I really don't know where you get your ideas from, but they are delightful. I so enjoy reading them. 5/5 The Carousel of Spirits: Magic. I will always look at a Carousel with different eyes form now. 5/5 A Real Stand-Up Guy: This take mixed relations to a different place. 5/5 When a Cat Loves a Dog: I just could not take to this one. I gave up after 60 pages. Too long for the theme, I feel. 1/5
Overall I would give a rating of 4/5. Maybe I just read too many in the same vein one after another.

I really enjoyed the first three stories;

The Best Puppy Ever,
The Wharf Cats Mermaid,
The Carousel of Spirits,

The fourth story, "A Real Sand-up Guy" was ok, I did not finish the last story "When a Car Loves a Dog", it is not my taste, but others may enjoy it.
