Carrie Moore left Rhode Island shortly after prom more than eighteen years ago and has not returned since.  Now she is back in town due to the death of her Nana.  Carrie has inherited all of Nana’s possessions and plans to sell them and leave before anyone (especially Jack and Becky) are any the wiser.  You see Jack is her former boyfriend and tore her heart out when she witnessed him telling her best friend that he loved her and would take care of her, just minutes after they made love for the first time.

Unfortunately, her plans are slightly derailed by her Nana’s pony, I mean Irish Wolfhound, Ellie.  To make things even better the local law enforcement and animal control officer is none other than Jack.  When Jack realizes that Ellie belongs to Carrie he sets out to have her finally listen to what really happened all those years ago.  Now that Becky is gone he feels that they deserve another try at happiness together.  But, will he reveal the truth or will secrets keep them locked in the past?

While Dog-Gone But Not Forgotten has a well used plot line the thing that makes this story unique is the addition of Ellie the dog.  I loved Ellie and the shenanigans that Ms. Yates has her embark on.  I also thought the fact that a little supernatural hint was well placed in making this story work.  I found Dog-Gone But Not Forgotten to be a fast-paced, laugh-out-loud adventure, and think any dog lover will also enjoy it.
