Learning to Lick at Life & Chew on Civility
with ZsaZsa LaPooch
What took you so long to get to my website? That’s what I want to know.

You, on the other hand, may want to know more about my book.

The first thing you need to know is that it really is my book. I worked very hard on it, between naps, that is.

Once I got my guardians Mary and Jim in line by repeatedly demonstrating how clearly this French Bulldog can communicate, it became an issue of getting them to do my typing. You see, I had a bunch of questions to ask of Nessa, Mary's sister of choice, because she is very wise and a little naughty. Also she lived near Dr. Ben Franklin’s house, and he was even wiser – and more naughty than Nessa.

Nessa had never before mentored a beautiful canine-type of individual and was game to give it a whirl.

So… many emails whizzed about in cyberspace, and, before we knew it, we had a book here. Mostly we were writing about how civility, manners, and good humor create strong relationships, and how those can make all the difference when navigating life’s challenges and changes.

We got my godmother Oatley involved, and, pretty soon, we had a whole bunch of drawings featuring guess who??
