Puddles on the Floor

"I just received Puddles On The Floor, and have read it three times. I am convinced that we need to get copies of this book in as many elementary school libraries as possible. What an awesome educational tool this is!! I will be sending a donation to get multiple copies to distribute to schools, and hope my action will encourage others to do the same. Education is the key to improving the plight of needy dogs, and this book can change attitudes. I AM IMPRESSED, and I encourage YOU to order multiple copies to distribute in your area!" —Pauline Larsen, Columnist, Humane Educator

Puddles on the Floor
by Lorena Estep, Illustrated by DDB Founder Tamira Ci Thayne

Chance is a beagle puppy who is just like every other dog—he wants a home and a family to love him. When he loses his first home and is sent to the shelter, he is devastated—until he is adopted by a boy and his mother, and life seems like it will be good again.

But he has a little problem with leaving “puddles on the floor.” Without the proper training, he ends up in a horrible place—stuck at the end of a chain.

Like all dogs, he remains faithful to his family, and patiently waits for love to return.

A twist of fate sets him free to seek a better life. Will Chance finally find the loving inside home and family he deserves? (Hint: there IS a happy ending, would we have it any other way?)

"Puddles on the Floor is an exquisitely illustrated story for children about a beagle who is isolated outdoors on a chain after he is not properly houstrained. The story behind the story deserves to become an illustrated book itself...Thayne's own story could inspire generations of young people to get involved and make things happen." Animal People News

Using age-appropriate messaging, this book and accompanying CD target the following Humane Education aspects for coursework and can be used to stimulate discussion about these issues with students and children:

• Irresponsible breeding and the need for spay/neuter
• Dumping dogs at shelter
• Misuse of caging
• Chaining for life
• Strays and the dangers they face

From Nicole Kress-Scheidmantel, West Virginia, Speech and Language Pathologist: "These Valentines are from my children at TA Lowery Elementary School in Jefferson County, WV. They read Puddles on the Floor this year, and were truly brought to tears at some moments in the story. It has really opened some eyes, as some families keep their dogs outside."

This is the first children's book created just for Dogs Deserve Better! This book is perfect for family educational reading, and for humane education from 2nd-through 6th grades.
