Meet April, a rescue dog turned Diva, in this charming picture book for dreamers of all ages. This fantasy dog memoir is April's travel diary on places she would visit in Paris. April was the sixth dog adopted by author Barbara Barth. She had trouble finding her place in the pack and sat quietly watching the other dogs. During a photo shoot for an Easter blog post, a vintage pink hat, complete with a large silk rose, was placed on April's head. She wore the hat with style and transformed from April to Miss April in Paris. For a few months she had a blog of her own, where she dreamed of visiting the city of lights. April has completed her Paris diary and is sharing it with you here. A portion of all book sales will be donated to animal rescue.
This book is an invitation to understand the essence of life with forty dogs in its entirety, and through that comprehension to truly appreciate what Joseph Robertia sees every day, and never takes for granted how special it is. His heartfelt goal is to share in words and photos the intrinsic nature and indispensable quality that determines each dog and defines their unique character and personality. Not everyone can sacrifice their spare time, salaries, and sanity to get to know so many characters—from the well-mannered to the wily—but Life with Forty Dogs will reveal the endless adventures and misadventures that come to those, like Robertia and his family, who have made a life-changing canine commitment.
Every once in a while, a dog enters your life and changes everything.
Where would we be without dogs in our daily lives? Our dogs stick by us through thick and thin, never disapproving and always waiting for us.
As Mordecai Siegal, author of over 30 books about dogs, cats, and horses stated, “Acquiring a dog may be the only time a person gets to choose a relative.” His words ring true and give expression to the deep love we have for our canine companions.
Join author Melanie Steele and photographer Holli Murphy as they capture the essence of these fine creatures—noble, charismatic and fun-loving in Dogs: The Family We Choose.
