This beautiful children's book teaches about the love, dedication and hard work that go into raising a service dog to help people with disabilities achieve independence. Proceeds from this book are going to one of my favorite organizations, Canine Companions for Independence, where the memory of our son Tommy Lasorda, Jr. lives on in a future service dog hero named 'Spunky.'" --Tommy Lasorda, Sr.

Volunteer Puppy Raiser

Derby - turn in November 2016
There are a few items the puppy in the book is allowed to do that CCI puppies shouldn't do (sleep in our bed for example) but an adorable book nonetheless. I will treasure this book!
From the back cover: "A portion of the sale of this book supports Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit organization providing assistance dogs to children, adults and veterans with disabilities. www.cci,org"
A disclaimer that I am indeed a volunteer puppy raiser for Canine Companions for Independence (five puppies so far!). I appreciate Ms. Numeroff's effort and support of raising awareness of assistance dogs, volunteer puppy raising, and CCI.
