About the Book
The Native American symbolization of the dog is “noble, faithful, loyal, teaching, protection, and guidance.” This is a very special story, a true story, about a puppy that had a heart much bigger than that of any person I have ever known and had taught our family a very important lesson about unconditional love and friendship.
About the Author
I am the mother of two wonderful young adults, Cory (twenty-one) and Randi-Kiana (seventeen). When I was young, my father used to take us on long car rides, and to entertain us, he would make up stories using the road signs as characters. He never wrote down any of his stories. Creating stories has always come very easy to me, and I have always enjoyed telling them to the children in my life. I do not want to lose my stories the way we lost my dad’s. In my spare time, I crochet children’s blankets for a local family homeless shelter, ride my 2006 Harley Davidson Dyna Superglide whenever I can, and drive a Ford F250 truck called Big Mama when I can’t. I live with my wonderful husband, two beautiful dogs, three spoiled cats, and a sweet guinea pig in Gresham, Oregon. During the week, I work for a company repairing machinery that produces microchips, paint, play guitar, and write. I have a very full life!
