Coming in a few weeks, “A Dog Named Saturday.” My children’s book about our most spectacular, sweet and loving beagle. Not only is Saturday the most loving of all dogs, he is also a very, very wise dog. He knows things like, “Good is even better when you share it with friends.” And, “Love is much better than everything, because with love everything is better.”
Recently our dear Saturday went to Heaven. Saturday was a most exceptionally sweet dog. I’ve always said his tail is attached to his heart. He had one goal in life and that was to give everyone buckets of love, a goal he exceeded each and every day. Saturday was a discarded dog who wandered into our lane and hearts ten years ago, sick, hungry and tired. But even then his tail wagged full steam.
I posted on facebook about Saturday’s passing, most of my facebook friends have long known Saturday and I wanted to talk about it, and celebrate his life. Several friends suggested I write a children’s book about him. One even suggested the title, which I loved and am using. Thank you Judy.
This is a book about a little dog who woke up every morning just to make everyone he met happy. It’s what he did. Through the stories he spreads love and happy, and most stories have a bit of honesty and guidance for young ones.
We have world class illustrator Troy Locker Palmer creating the most delightful illustrations. Seen here are Saturday, Fluffernutter one of the barn kitties and Kessy the horse. Isn't Troy incredible!
A Dog Named Saturday will be published and available on Amazon in 2 weeks. I'll keep you informed here, and on my FB page and Saturday's FB page A Dog Named Saturday . I think Saturday would love to spend Christmas with lots of new friends. "The best things about friends is you can always make more," Saturday said.
This is first of Saturday’s series of children’s books. He has way too much love, kindness and wisdom to share with young ones of all ages to stuff into just one book. And we are creating Saturday memorabilia. Fun stuff, and are designing his Holiday piece right now.
Keep in touch, follow the fun, tell all your young ones, Saturday is bringing the love. And if your young ones should have a question they would like Saturday to answer, please send them to us.
Please "Like" our A DOG NAMED SATURDAY facebook page. And tell your friends.
