Volunteer Puppy Raiser
North Central Region
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.
