Local Dog is the Subject of a New Children’s Book
Rossi is a fluffy, black Standard Poodle who is the main character in a new children’s book, “Rossi the Approval Poodle.” Oklahoma City home owners Judy Savage owns Rossi and penned the book to share with kids five rules for living happier and healthier lifestyle. The book also features glossy photographs taken by Melissa Dense Clark that teach kids to 1) Respect; 2) Obey; 3) Be Safe; 4) Be Social; 5) Be Important.
Rossi is a certified therapy dog and is a celebrity canine in town. She’s known for her hard work, and helps kids read at Oklahoma libraries, makes sick people feel better in area hospitals and visits schools regularly, spreading joy wherever she goes. According to the author, Rossi “approves of good behavior that helps everyone be happy,” which is how she got the nickname “Approval Poodle.”
Savage says she got the idea for the book when her four-year-old granddaughter, Jane Marie, stopped acting up when she noticed that her behavior mattered to Rossi. Savage adds, “I realized that Rossi was a type of mentor to my grandchildren and that this Black Standard Poodle could be one to others as well. The children look forward to Rossi’s paw print stamp of approval on their little hands.”
The book costs $12.95 and is classified as a self-improvement book for children. It is sold locally at Casey’s Gift Store in the Mercy Hospital Gift Shop and at Full Circle Bookstore. The book is also for sale online at www.rossitheapprovalpoodle.com. And now would be a great time to secure your copy of “Rossi the Approval Poodle,” as both Rossi and Savage will appear at a book signing on December 8th. The event is taking place at 10:00 a.m. at Full Circle Bookstore in 50 Penn Place. Bring your books and your children for the chance to have your book signed by the author, and to meet Rossi in person.
