Let me tell you about a new book I just discovered and why it is SO important to me.

If you visit my other blog about my Therapy Dog Oscar, you will also see a post on this book.   (I don’t update that one much anymore – too many blogs, not enough time!)

Leroy The Ugly Dog  by Janice Ronald

I am very excited because Leroy is a Wire Haired Pointing Griffon and SO IS OSCAR!!!   My mom had sent me the clip from the Wichita (KS) Eagle newspaper and I immediately went online to order it.   Unfortunately, it is temporarily out of stock.  I will probably end up ordering lots – I’d like to give one to all the places I bring Oscar!  and all my N&Ns, of course.  and even maybe my neighborkids…

I am also hoping that my giving exposure to this book will bring the author here to my blog since I have yet to find a website for her.

 A blurry photo of me with Oscar – a couple of years old…   Oscar isn’t nearly as fluffy as Leroy.   And neither is an UGLY DOG!   They’re beautiful.  and gentle and funny, and so lovable…

    That’s awesome, Care! I didn’t know you have a therapy dog. Now I REALLY admire you! Are these dogs rare?

    Yes, I guess. More unknown than rare but maybe that’s the same thing… He’s an AKC breed and you can seem him show at Westminster in the Sporting Group: http://www.westminsterkennelclub.org/breedinformation/sporting/wirehagr.html

    I have a therapy dog “Reggie”. He is a giant “Schnoodle”. We have a web site http://www.therapydogministry.org you might want to check out. In addition to the usual visits to the hospital and a health care facility we have a ministry with the children in our church. Our web site shares our story and the stories we have developed for the children in our church.
