Critics herald new book as “Best in Show” among First Dog books!

First Dog of 1600 Pooch’lvania Avenue: My First Year in Arf Arf Office! a book about the First Family’s dog, Bo, is now on Internet bookshelves everywhere. Written by the team of Ron Grant and Ron Ovadia with illustrations by Dave Garbot, First Dog contains hilarious and heartwarming illustrations and text that will have readers, young (6 to 10) and old, howling with joy. It shows that education and imagination go hand in paw.

The book follows the adventures of Bo from the kennel to the White House, where he discovers a magical relationship with the First Family’s two daughters, complete with super-slurpy doggy kisses he gives them and the love they give him in return. The story reveals that Bo, beyond sniffing his way around the White House, also has a nose for politics. He uses his (nonpartisan) political insights to rekindle animal rights and rescue, create doggy health and job programs, and thwart puppy mills across the nation. Bo holds a press conference, recites his own doggy version of the Gettysburg Address, and even pens his own Animal Bill of Rights. The story of a less fortunate kennel pup that becomes First Dog symbolizes the spirit of hope that can encourage young readers to follow their own dreams.

First Dog of 1600 Pooch’lvania Avenue: My First Year in Arf Arf Office! is now available at Amazon.com, Amazon’s Kindle, the iPad with a Kindle App, and BarnesandNoble.com.

10% of the book’s net profits will be donated to animal rights and rescue organizations.
