Dock Dog Excerpt:

Then Darcy hurried over to her home.  Nudging her person she pointed to her life jacket. The lovable fluffy dog knew she needed her life jacket to go for a boat ride and she wanted to be prepared. The person laughed and said. “Is it a good day for a boat ride, Darcy? You’re right, you need your life jacket.”

Darcy’s person helped her into the bright orange foam and snapped the latch closed. The jacket hugged the fluffy dog snuggly around her back and belly. She even had a handle on her back, so people could help Darcy get on the boat, if she slipped into the water.  With her life jacket on, Darcy was ready for a boat ride.
