A SPECIAL WOMAN AND A GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING!

Posted by / in Information /

front-cover

DOG-LOVING FRIENDS AND FAMILY?

WELL LOOK NO FURTHER!!

“Make a Splash” this holiday season by giving a special gift that’s raising money to bring clean, fresh drinking water into Kilcona Park.

“Tucker’s Tips on Living with People: From One Dog to Another” is a humorous and engaging perspective on life as told from a dog’s point of view. From one dog to another, Tucker talks about the challenges of living with people and gives advice to his bestie.

It’s a book for sharing, appealing to dog-loving adults; children over the age of five love it!

Tyler White, the book’s author, says “Tucker’s Tips” is a celebration of two special bichon/poodles, her life with them and all that they taught her. She laughs when she says her lab, Sunny, is a lucky dog. He got Tyler after Tucker and his pal had already trained her.

Tyler is a member of Kilcona Park Dog Club and an enthusiastic, active volunteer. Acknowledging the “amazing job” KPDC volunteers are doing to raise funds to bring clean, fresh drinking water into the off-leash area, she says she’s thrilled to be able to donate all the profit from the sale of each book to the water features project.

“Tucker’s Tips” was Tyler’s first published work. She is the acclaimed author of four plays with themes of empowerment – “The Funeral Guest”, “The Dance”, “Launched” and “Bear and Blue’s Adventures in the Whispering Woods”.  As a mental health professional, Tyler is quick to point out that empowered people are happier and kinder.
