My First Book
I'm so excited about my first book! One of the authors is MY HUMAN! My stories are all true things that happen in New York City. Most of the things happen to me or my friends.
My activities in New York City are just like activities that you and your family do in your town! I go to school, to puppy parties, I work out at a dog gym with other doggy friends. I go swimming in a pool and have play dates with my friends. New York City even has restaurants that I can go to with my humans.
I love adventure and everything in New York City is exciting and fun. I can't wait to tell you all the things that happen every day!
