Kindergarten-Grade 3—Catie was trained to be a guide dog, but her life takes an unexpected turn when she ends up at the Copley Plaza in Boston helping the concierge. In true Lab fashion, she enthusiastically fulfills all aspects of her job, from going for walks with guests to playing with children. However, she dreams of doing something special. When a young visitor loses her stuffed bear, Catie finally has her chance. Her determination leads to a happy conclusion as she retrieves the toy from the laundry room and becomes a hero. The colorful illustrations bring to life the playful, yet dutiful personality of this appealing canine whether she is strolling down Newbury Street, checking out the Swan Boats in the Public Garden, or resting on her bed in the hotel lobby. This is a straightforward, enjoyable tale based on a real Lab. It will have a lot of dog enthusiasts wishing they could stay at the hotel and hang out with Catie.—Carol Schene, formerly at Taunton Public Schools, MA

I live in the most isolated capital city in the world. Perth is about as far away from Boston as you can get! I was missing my dog like crazy. Being greeted so warmly by Catie meant the world to me. When I heard about this book, I knew that I simply had to buy it and get it 'pawtographed' by Catie. It's a wonderful reminder about a beautiful dog living in city that was my childhood dream to visit. The fact that partial proceeds from each book sold goes to the Association for the Blind (a charity that I've always supported and donate to each year) meant that buying this book was a no brainer! When I came back to Australia, I immediately went online to Amazon.com and bought three more copies to give to family friends and a colleague who I knew would love it. She did!
I also bought "Catie Copley's Great Escape". I was lucky enough to meet Santol at Chateau Frontenac in Quebec during the same overseas holiday when I met Catie. Santol is this wonderfully big cuddly bear of a dog. The book really does both Santol, Catie and the stunningly beautiful city of Quebec (another childhood dream come true) justice!
and because I own a black Lab who looks just like Catie.
Highly recommend. We had stayed at the Copley before Catie and the two come together beautifully.
