Give a little Doug love for Christmas
“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.”
