Chris and Charlie

Introducing “Charlie”…

A colorful and fun story about Charlie, a little red dog that meets his new family and begins a new life full of adventure and excitement.  As Charlie explores the world around him with Christopher, he finds happiness in his new life and with his new family.  The first of more adventures to come!

Our mission is to introduce the love and joy a dog can bring into your life by sharing our experiences through Charlie. While reading about Charlies adventures, children will learn the basic needs of their furry friends and understand their needs.
