“Had a fabulous surprise at the beach this morning, I received this beautiful little book of poems written by my little pal Snowy with some marvelous drawings by his human Paul. Just read it and it brought a massive smile to my face especially as Snowy has written one especially for me. I’m sure my doggie walking group would love a copy of this…What a real treasure !”

Morning Paul
I finished reading the “Doggerel” last night
It is absolutely brilliant. My family and I loved all the stories, especially “The haircut”. The poems are so much fun, you’ve done an amazing job
What a great life little Snowy has !
