For years now the kids have asked us to get them a dog. We discuss how a pet is a big commitment, and a lot of fun but a lot of work too. Pets become family members, and require a lot of love and attention. But they give so much in return – their undivided love and loyalty. We aren’t quite ready to welcome a new family member, but the kids keep hoping it won’t be long.
Me, Teddy by Chris McKimmie is an exuberant and warm, hugely appealing book starring the author’s much-loved black labrador.
“I am Teddy. This is my scrap book. It’s about me growing up from a little tiny puppy with a boofy head and big brown melty eyes to a big black labrador weighing 40 kilos (since I have been on a diet). This is me, Teddy.”
