Meet Teddy. He's a 6 year old Shih Tsu and his biggest ambition is to be a reading mentor in a READ program. Some call them Reading to Dogs literacy programs, others say Sit, Stay, and Read. Teddy and I learned about these programs a number of years ago and an avid canine book lover was born. Today Teddy is on the lookout for good books and people who will read to him.
This blog is the result of combining my three passions: writing, dogs, and books. I'll be sharing info on all three, as well as my quest to release my inner Dog Whisperer. Teddy, the bookish Shih Tsu, is one of four dogs who live with me. All the boys love reading and share a particular fondness for dog-centric books. We are in constant search for the next good read.
Are you a writer? Want to promote your work or a favorite book while helping to promote literacy? Email me a photo of you and your dog reading together and I'll post it here with your name, the name of your dog, your book's title, your website link, and a short quote. Quick! Before Teddy yaps at your heels in pursuit, grab a book, a camera and call your doggie pal and start reading!
