My New Puppy

My New Puppy by Pet expert Steve Dale


“My New Puppy” is my latest book and it is FREE, here, at least for now.

This is a children’s coloring book, an endeavor I never previously thought about – but it happened. “My New Puppy” is for young kids, and hopefully filled with several simple albeit important lessons.

We know that children who grow up with pets from a very young age are better for it, even physically better. According to several studies, allergies and other illnesses are less likely to occur with early exposure to companion animals. Pets teach children responsibility, kindness and empathy. And pets are great companionship and fun to be around.  We can repay our pets for enriching our lives by bettering theirs. That is why it is important to instruct the next generation of pet lovers with a firm foundation in their care. I am delighted to join Essentials PetCare in their initiative to educate children about the importance of responsible pet care, at topic which I am passionate about.My New Puppy by Steve Dale
