From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 Rosalie, a red setter, is 16. Her muzzle is silver, her coat a little scraggly, her gait slow, her hearing gone, and she sleeps a lot. Even so, she is happy, playful, and loved. Rosalie is shown in a number of everyday situations: at a Little League baseball game, at the playground, on a walk, and at the vet. She is always surrounded by her caring, affectionate family and friends. The text and illustrations are suffused with a mood of poignant tenderness, along with a realistic acceptance of Rosalie's handicaps and an appreciation of her continuing love of life. The writing is clear and interesting and evokes a mood of understanding. The warm watercolor pictures feature apple-cheeked children and gentle adults, all happy and full of lively personality. Lucky Rosalie! Pat Pearl, First Prebysterian Church Library, Martinsville, Va.

From Publishers Weekly:

Rosalie, a 16-year-old dog, is deaf, and she doesn't move fast anymore. Cindy knows that Rosalie is close to 100 in human years, so she is careful to keep the dog on a leash outside, since she can't hear cars coming. Cindy also understands that other people don't always think Rosalie is cuteuntil they know her better. Carrick has captured the melancholy side of the tale in the dog's sad old eyes, and he shows warm scenes of Cindy's acceptance of Rosalie's shortcomings. This is a sweetly compelling story about a beloved member of the family. Its mood is wistful, yet not without joy, perhaps because it is told with such love. Ages 5-8.
