Dog Author Donates Book Profits to Help Animals and Children

"Reading this book was like getting to pet this inspirational pup in real life. Two opposable thumbs up!” --Aaron Jackson, CNN Hero & Co-founder of Planting Peace

Denver, CO, August 08, 2013 --( Chipper, a therapy dog dropout, has found a way to brighten her corner of the world by publishing a new book called, “Chipper’s Friends: The Heartwarming Story of an Imperfect Dog.” Her funny, inspiring autobiDOGraphy proves that you don’t have to be perfect to make a difference.

Chipper donates her book profits to a different charity each month in order to help children and animals. In April, she gave 100% of her net profits to the Colorado Puppy Rescue as a thank you for saving her life.

“We are so delighted that the April book promotion to benefit our rescue puppies totaled $157.66. Chipper, we are proud to promote your book and life stories! Thank you for being a special family and an example for others who might consider adoption.”
–Kim Fallert Ortega, Executive Director of the Colorado Puppy Rescue

Chipper used her earnings from June to throw a pizza party for her friends at Urban Peak Homeless Youth Shelter. She brought smiles to the faces of the 20 boys and 20 girls by decorating the pizza boxes with pawtographed messages that read, “I DIG YOU!” and “I WUF YOU.” Chipper visited the troubled teens while practicing to become a certified therapy dog. She shares a special bond with them because she was once a homeless youth (stray) too.

Chipper will be donating her profits from August to Planting Peace, a non-profit that operates orphanages in Haiti and India in order to prevent kids from becoming sex slaves or child soldiers.

“A wonderful, true story of laughter, friendship, and love… told through the eyes of a rescued puppy.”
-- A Puppy’s Voice

“Inspiring and laugh-out-loud funny!”
-- Colorado Puppy Rescue

About the Pawthor:
Chipper, a 4-year-old female with soft brown eyes and golden fur, grew up as a stray mutt until she was saved by the Colorado Puppy Rescue in 2009. During her training to become a certified therapy dog, she delivered gifts to kids at the teen homeless shelter, wore pink butterfly wings for her friends in pediatric hospice, and made valentines for seniors at a nursing home. As destiny would have it, Chipper failed out of the therapy dog program when she reached her rebellious adolescent stage. (She shoplifted some treats from a pet store and started barking at sweet little old ladies.) The four-legged failure decided to write an autobiDOGraphy to prove that you don’t have to be perfect to make a difference. Her story has inspired people in several countries to brighten their corner of the world. Chipper’s hobbies include Squirrel Surveillance, helping her family foster puppies, playing with her Squeaker the Squirrel toy, and sticking her butt up in the air.
