|Mickey delivers first check to SPCA
Mickey Nock, the Onancock Boston terrier who wrote the book "A Boston's
World," has delivered his first check to the SPCA-Eastern Shore. Llewellyn
Allison(left), SPCA president and Lark Smith, SPCA treasurer, were pleased to
accept the check, as Mickey made good on his promise to donate a portion of the
proceeds of his book's sales to help other four-legged friends. Mickey also sent
a check to the Boston Terrier Club of America's Rescue Operation, a nationwide
effort to save and find good homes for Boston terriers that have been abandoned
or taken to shelters. More donations will follow as the book sales
continue worldwide. The book has recently received attention with a book review
in Good Dog! magazine and a brief "plug" in the "Nose for
Books" column in Dog Fancy magazine. "We're very pleased to be
beneficiaries of Mickey's generosity and the success of his book," said
Allison. "The book is a delightful view of Mickey's world, and at this time
of year it would make a great Valentine gift that helps two good causes."
|Boston T. Party
New local author, Mickey is doggone unusual
This was the very first book signing party I ever had. The reception was held on
the deck on the waterfront in Onancock at Hopkins & Bro. Store. What made
this party unusual was the author. Mickey is a Boston terrier owned by his
agent, Anne Nock, (author of "Child of the Bay"), and they are
neighbors of Hopkins & Bro. Store. Mickey recently published his first book,
"A Boston's World," about life from his point of view. The reception
gave friends and local dog lovers a chance to meet Mickey and pick up copies of
his book, complete with his paw print. Over 100 people shared in the fun and
brought their own dogs along for the festivities. The guests came in all
sizes, shapes, and colors. Some were black, some were white, some were brown, and one was even
white with black spots! Some were shaggy and some were neat, some had tails and
some had none. the tiniest guest was only seven weeks old and the largest was
the size of a small horse. The guest of honor, Mickey Nock, was neatly dressed
in black and white and he greeted each of his guests as they arrived. After a
busy afternoon of signing books and answering questions, Mickey and sister,
Winnie (A Boston, too), scampered back across the street to their yard to play
ball. All in attendance agreed this ought to be only the first of many "dog
friendly" events as everyone enjoyed meeting new friends, the two-legged as
well as four-legged varieties.
|Mickey & Winnie Go to School
On January 26, 1999, leading Canine-American author, Mickey &
Winnie visited Mrs. Tracy LoAlbo and her second grade class at John B. Dey
Elementary School in Virginia Beach to discuss writing techniques with the
|Barnes & Noble Pawtograph Session
Barnes & Noble welcomed Mickey, for the most up-scale pawtographing time we've has so far.
I pawtographed until I could not pawtograph any more. But it was exciting seeing all those people.
Before it was all over Winnie & I had a
wonderful time meeting the many people who came, kids and grownups alike.
