Hi! My Basset Hound wrote a book I think you would thoroughly enjoy.
It is called “Deer Aint Peggy: Letters of Advice and Life’s Observations from a Fourteen-Year-Old Basset Hound”.
Welcome to the world of Sherlock P. Blanchard, Basset Hound.
This book contains a collection of 50 letters written by a Basset Hound to his human relatives and friends. Sherlock’s letters appeal to adults -- young and old -- and to teenagers.
From his perspective, everything makes perfect sense. From a human reader’s perspective, the letters are hilarious and endearing.
Sherlock suggests innovative solutions to humankind’s perplexities. He provides unusual observations of human and pet behavior. Sherlock reports on his misadventures around the house, in the neighborhood, on outings and trips, and at the veterinarians.

I got my book yesterday. I started reading and didn't find it at all hard to understand. I teach Kindergarten. Sherlock and my students talk/write just about the same.

Hi Sherlock,

Ruby here; mommy and I are having so much fun reading your book. Mommy once said that I should write a book because I was born in Bassetchusetts then we moved to Jacksonville, FL and now the San Diego, CA area. Mommy and daddy have had all sorts of accents from where they've lived, but my voice has always been the same.

Have you ever stalked a fly? I used to do that all the time when I was a baby. I don't do that any more because I'm much too dignified.

(THE) Ruby
