My Name is Quincie
by Joanne Martin

This is the real-life story of Quincie, a very special Portuguese Water Dog. Quincie lives with his human mommy and daddy, Joanne and Lawson, whom he loves very much. Quincie has a very exciting life. First he goes to puppy school, where he learns to behave like a good dog. When he grows up, becomes a therapy dog, visiting people who are sick and making them smile. He also goes on all sorts of adventures, like car rides, long walks, pet parade, and art fairs. No matter what he’s doing, Quincie loves life, and he is grateful for every moment he spends with his family. In this heart-warming book, told in his own voice, Quincie gives his human readers all sorts of advice on how to live the simplest, happiest life.
