Give a lit­tle Doug love for Christ­mas

The People's Friend - - Helping Others -

“Doug the Pug — A Work­ing Dog’s Tale” (£7.95, pub­lished by 5mbooks.com) is a book for chil­dren and those who en­joy read­ing with them. A sweet tale high­light­ing the joys of the hu­man-an­i­mal bond, it is dis­creetly based on Doug’s gen­uine work­ing life as a Ther­apy Dog.

“Its aim is to en­cour­age every­one to be happy with who and what they are, to cel­e­brate our dif­fer­ences and recog­nise that we all have some­thing quite won­der­ful to of­fer,” Cate says. “Doug and I wouldn’t have such a lovely work­ing life to­gether if it wasn’t for the great work of Pets As Ther­apy, so I’m de­lighted that PAT ben­e­fits from ev­ery book sold.

“And if any­one with a soppy, pre­dictable dog at home is in­spired to do what we do, then that would make our hearts sing.”
