  1. I think it is going to be a fantastic series of books. You are blessed with so much talent Tonya and such a wonderful fur baby to write books about. Looking forward to it.

  2. I can’t wait for the release of this whimsical series. As a lover of books (especially children’s picture books), and a tutor for students who have dyslexia, I am sure to use these books to spark their interest & motivate them to practice their reading regularly. Knowing Tonya & Dexter, & having a Cavalier that shares his neurological disability, I am hopeful that this series will bring comfort to children of all ages & provide examples of relatable scenarios. If ever Dexter attends a support group for SM/CM Or deafness ( I myself am hearing impaired & must wear aids), my Pippa will gladly lend herself as a member of the group. . ?? Best wishes as you navigate the process of bringing Dexter, the dog & friends, to fruition. ???
