    A Great Collection of Three Great Stories

    Having read and reviewed the three stories of which this collection is comprised, I thought it might be helpful to post my previous reviews here. "Dog Aliens 1: Raffle's Name" by Cherise Kelley is an amusing tale narrated by Raffle, currently living in his 99th dog body. You see, Raffle 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 (big dogs) from Kax; and the Niques (little dogs) from Nique. The author cleverly creates authentic 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. 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. "Dog Aliens 2: Oreo" continues the saga of Raffle, star of "Dog Aliens 1: Raffle's Name". In this episode Raffle is saddled with the responsibility of watching over his new "puppy" friend, Oreo. Raffle's humans were told Oreo is only a puppy, but Raffle knows Oreo is really three years old... while Raffle himself is only a bit over a year old! Raffle is an obedient, loving dog, fully bonded with his humans. Oreo is a rascal who delights in tormenting Raffle, disobeying their humans, and trying to run away. Oreo has no idea he is from the planet Kax. Raffle's assignment from Kax is to teach Oreo about his origin and help him to recall his Kaxian memories. Meanwhile, the Niques next door, from the planet Nique, convince Oreo that Raffle is insane with all his talk about being an alien. "Dog Aliens 2: Oreo" is well written and sure to amuse young and old alike. As should be obvious, this story does not pretend to be "intellectual", but rather is intended for fun reading. Cherise Kelley has convincingly developed a story that is very entertaining and will be enjoyed by many. “Dog Aliens 3: She Wolf Neya” provides a very satisfying conclusion to the Dog Aliens trilogy. Raffle continues holding telepathic discourse with the young she-wolf, Neya, whom he met at the end of the previous episode. In her misguided efforts to make Raffle return her affection, Neya tries to make him jealous of other male canids, including another alien dog and a lone wolf. But Raffle knows this is only puppy-love, no pun intended, and urges Neya to pursue the lone wolf, Cholf. Neya’s actions endanger her pack and her own life, as she places herself in some precarious positions. Unbeknownst to any of the Kaxians or the wolves, a dastardly Nique has been assigned the task of killing Neya, in the hope that Raffle will become distracted by his sadness at the loss of her friendship, and thereby cease to be such a threat to the Niques as they continue high-jacking shipments of jex bound for Kax. These stories are highly entertaining for young and old, and I recommend the collection to all readers who enjoy a little fun light reading once in a while. You may learn a lot about the dogs in your life! Regardless, you will enjoy the series.
