Dominique, Ambassador of Joy
Nana's Service Dog
by Janet Kennedy Kiefer

What is a service dog, and why does Nana Jan have one?

Dominique is a very special little dog who has the power to put a smile on anyone’s face. Nana’s trained service and therapy dog goes everywhere with her—even to yoga! She helps Nana Jan with her pain by snuggling up and comforting her and by spreading love and happiness. Dominique helps others, too, like children at the hospital who have cancer, and new moms about to give birth. But her favorite thing is chasing her ball!

There are many types of service dogs and many different people who need service dogs. Dominique, Ambassador of Joy: Nana’s Service Dog introduces children to the important and diverse role service dogs play in helping others feel their best.

Join Luella, Violet, and Georgi as they ask questions and learn all about Nana Jan’s service dog!

“A sweet, conversational introduction to service dogs.”
