My children's book 'My Puppy Can Find Me" using photos of my former Bloodhounds for the pictures in the books. I can't wait to see the dogs as cartoons, Bloodhounds can be such clouds.
Here's a sneak preview from the back of the book....

My Puppy Can Find Me
"Does your child know what to do if they are lost? Do you know what to do if they are missing?
My Puppy Can Find Me picture book is your child’s first step on an exciting learning experience that will teach them what to do if they are lost or find themselves alone.
By reading this book with your children, the whole family will learn what to do if they are ever separated or missing and how the family dog can be of assistant during emergencies. Your children will learn valuable lessons by doing these fun exercises that reinforce and teach the pet dog and family to work together during crisis situations."
The book is shaped around three important lessons children who live with family dogs can learn, along with the dog and a parent that show them how to find each other and what the child should do if they ever find themselves lost or alone.
I have taught many children about search dogs. I spent 6 years with my daughter in 4-H, we took the search dogs to 4-H meetings, events and participated in parades. We also went to a couple of schools for demonstrations where I would ask which child wanted to take off a sock they were wearing and hide from a Bloodhound ? You should of seen the hands go up ! It was fun. They would hide and the Bloodhounds would find them. The children learned valuable lessons about what to do if they were ever lost or alone. This book is from those Bloodhound days of slobbers and shy dogs who are most brave.
