Daphne the Blind Dog Gets Adopted
by Dawn M. Gibbons

Daphne is a blind dog who has arrived at an animal rescue facility. People are kind to her there, but she is still nervous and on guard. Daphne can’t see anything, but her ability to smell, hear, feel, and know helps her to understand the world around her.

Daphne copes as best she can, but she always longs for something better–and she’s not sure what that might be.

A new adult, a stranger, adopts Daphne and takes her home. It takes Daphne a little while to adapt to this unfamiliar environment, where everything is new again. But when she does, she understands what she was looking for all along–joy.

After years of living alone, Dawn Gibbons decided to get a dog for companionship. She found four-year-old Daphne through an animal rescue organization after a breeder had surrendered her. Dawn is committed to giving Daphne a life of joy and adventure. They live together in Calgary, Alberta.

Daphne’s stories are designed to engage children who may have experienced similar anxieties and adventures in their lives. The next book, Daphne the Blind Dog Goes to School, will tell the story of Daphne’s nose work classes.
