A Canadian story of over-coming seemingly impossible challenges. A hero, Smiley will warm your heart and open your eyes to some of life's beauty that even those with sight need help seeing through this story of a blind dog with dwarfism.

Wonderful non-fiction children's book that depicts the life of the famous Smiley. Smiley was born visually impaired and eventually became a reading buddy. As a dog caretaker I loved this story which can be used on so many levels to educate children on topics such as puppy mills, what it means to be happy, disability, reading, animal adoptions, dealing with an ageing dog, etc. Simply a wonderful story.

My heart melted while reading this book. If you think the power of the human spirit is strong, you have to read about the spirit of Smiley - a blind therapy dog. He was rescued from a puppy mill and, against all odds, thrived and became a comfort to countless others. Filled with motivational quotes and adorable pictures from Smiley's life.
