Marvin the Golf Caddy Dog

Please welcome the newest Riley and James guest blogger, Abby Finch!

Abby’s wonderful teacher gave her the book Marvin the Golf Caddy Dog for Christmas.  When we were reading it together, we noticed the shelter in the book looked very similar to the Nebraska Humane Society and had its logo.


We confirmed our suspicions with Abby’s teacher and friends from the Nebraska Humane Society that the author is indeed from Omaha.  In fact, he had given the books to the school to give to the kids.  Our friends at the Nebraska Humane Society suggested Abby review the book, and here is what she has to say…

What was the book’s title?

Marvin The Golf Caddy Dog.

Who is the author?

Harold R. Mann.

Who are the main characters?

Marvin and his best friend, Ted.

What is the book about?

Marvin’s owner didn’t like him so he left him on the street, which made me mad and sad, and then Marvin found a golf yard, and then he made a new friend named Ted.  Marvin helps his friend Ted play golf, but one day Marvin gets caught and ends up at the Humane Society, then Ted rescues Marvin.

Did you like the book?


Why?  What did you like about it?

I liked it because I like dogs.

If a friend or sister or cousin asked you about the book, would you recommend they read it?  Why?

Yes, because it is a good book and I want other people to know about it.

How many stars would you give this book?  5

    Good job Abbycadabra! :) I want to borrow this book so Madi & I can read it together.

  4. Great post Abby!! Those of us at the shelter have a follow up question. Why is it a good idea to rescue dogs from a shelter?

    Thank you for the nice comments. It was fun to write a post. Aunt Jodi, you can borrow my book to read with Madi.Elizabeth, Shelters are a better place to get a dog than pet stores because there are a lot of neat animals at the shelter that need homes.
