This Woman Comforts Shelter Dogs By Reading Them Children's Books


I think Shelter Dogs is awesome because I love dogs. The part of the book that I found to be interesting was when he people picked mixed breed dogs for important jobs. The dogs reminded me of myself because that?s my sign in the Chinese Zodiac. Most or all stories were about mixed breed dogs. One dog in the story could actually alert his owner of a seizure which I thought was pretty amazing.As part of my preparation for a writing club I taught last year about rescue animals, I read some of the pet books I’ve collected over the years, and am delighted to have found Shelter Dogs by Peg Kehret among them. This brief book of just over one hundred pages contains eight true stories mostly about dogs that came from The Humane Society in Washington State where Kehret has long volunteered. Shelter Dogs was an inspiring and educational read that I was sorry to have end.Our first children's picture book focuses on animal shelter dogs. The goal was to publish a book that will capture kid's attention, entertain them, and share a powerful message of pet adoption at the same time.But what Sue Sternberg writes about 'dominance' (how I dread this word) and aggressive or 'potentially aggressive' dogs contradicts almost every other book I have read from your authors. According to her, all of my three dogs should have been euthanasized, as one is fearful of strangers (he was beaten with sticks and kicked at as a puppy in a 'perrera' (kill shelter) in Spain, so no wonder he has problems with strangers) but according to Ms. Sternberg he would be potentially aggressive and better euthanasized, one is fearful of loud noises and movements from above (he was found as a puppy in a trash can in the middle of his already starved siblings, so no wonder he is afraid of things coming from above). But in her opinion he is also potentially aggressive and dangerous. Finally, our third little fellow is a former stray dog who was roaming the streets with a broken leg. He is quite bold and cheeky, otherwise he would probably not have survived. But according to Sue Sternberg he is not only dominant (!) but also potentially aggressive and dangerous.
