As the end of 2017 approached, it was obvious the world needed a little humour. So, Richard Davis began writing short stories about his life with his Schipperke dogs, and putting this stories on the Facebook group "Schipperke Country" (a group with over 3000 members).
The response was magic, his writing touched the audience immediately, and they wanted more!
The stories in this book are about life and death and all the strange and wonderful stuff that goes on in-between. Some are memoirs, some are about the day to day occurrences of life with dogs, and some are just plain 'out there!'. They all have one thing in common: You won't forget them.
The engaging stories will be accompanied by illustrations of Schipperkes by Illustrator Amy Curran.
A must for every human that loves their four legged friends.
Risks and challenges
Amy Curran, of Pink Coffee Publishing (PCP), heard of Richards stories through Helen Rixon, a mutual friend of both.
PCP is an Independent Publishing House in Australia, which supports Individuals with a story to tell. PCP is the 'hand holder' throughout the process, so the Author can concentrate on their story, and PCP handles the rest to bring their dream to life.
Richard Davis is a War Veteran, who is now retired with his two four legged family members.
