Tuna Melts My Heart (Kobo eBook) – Review

Have you heard about or rather seen Tuna, the dog who took the internet by storm a few years ago? Tuna Melts My Heart is about him, dedicated to him. Author Courtney Dasher is his owner. She got him when his original owner abandoned Tuna at a farmer’s market in Los Angeles. Here is the review of the cutest book on this planet, Tuna Melts My Heart.

What is it about?

Tuna, Tuna, and Tuna. This book is all about him, his daily routine, as captured and narrated by the author. She has chronicled his life through words and pictures, giving us a detailed insight into the cutie’s day to day activities.

Tuna is as distinct as a dog can ever be. He is a crossbreed dog between Chihuahua and Dachshund. He took to fame as his owner started sharing his endearing and achingly cute photos on social media. The global attention gave way to this book. The author begins the book by providing an introduction about Tuna to the readers. She explains the meaning of his name, which is a cartoon! He is named that because of his resemblance to Montgomery Burns from The Simpsons. Apart from his cartoonish looks, the dog also has unusual teeth and jaw structure that adds to his charming adorability.

The 168 pages book, narrated by the author, is filled with the stories of the dog’s daily routine, right from the time he wakes up till the time he goes to bed. The icing on the cake is the photos of the dogs doing all the activities.

The Author’s Writing Style

The writing of the book is cute, unusual and funny, just like Tuna. The author has gone on to reveal specific non-existing terms and words that she uses to describe things about Tuna. Take for, e.g., Toodlebrain, which she uses to describe Tuna’s distinct personality. Her language and choice of such an unusual mix of words make this book a highly amusing read.


5 endearing stars to this one-of-a-kind book! 1 star goes to the author for her idea and the way she has written it. The remaining to the heart-warming underdog with the overbite. Tuna Melts My Heart is, well, heart-melting. It touches anyone who reads it. This book is recommended for everyone, especially those who have pets and those who have sympathy for abandoned and needy animals.
