and I’m a Very Special Dog
About the Book
Popeye is a nine-year-old dog who is special. Although he is blind, he views the world in full color. After he is adopted from the SPCA by a kindly woman, Popeye is happily welcomed by his fur siblings.
As he adjusts to his new home, Popeye sets off to find new friends. Along the way, he meets a girl who is recovering from cancer, a boy in a wheelchair, and a soldier who lost his arms in battle. As Popeye spreads unconditional love, hope, and understanding, he demonstrates that we are all special in our own ways.
In this colorful children’s book, a special blind dog shares an important message about acceptance after he is adopted by a new family.
About the Author
I never wrote a story before, much less thought it would be published.
I grew up in Oriskany, a small town in upstate New York. After living from Seattle to Miami and points in between, I wound up in Winter Haven, Florida, with my husband and three dogs.
My passion has been traveling since my parents took my brother and me to Europe when I was seventeen. I have been on every continent but Australia. Maybe Popeye will wind up in Paris in a future story. Hmmmmmm!
