Author and real live Boston Terrier! (not your average Boston Terrier) with
assistance from Anne B. Nock.
Ever since my owners
gave me access to a computer, I've enjoyed writing. Now with my newest
book "LapDog Therapy" all dogs can have this guidance. This book
brings out the best in all dogs. To help others, what more can a dog ask
