This unique hardcover “fill in the blanks” baby book gives dog lovers the same opportunity to chart their puppies growth and progress, as parents of infants do with their baby books.
Now, as your puppy grows, you can document:
- Where the puppy was born

- Who the puppy resembles
- Where the puppy was adopted from
- The first meal
- The puppy’s playmates
- When potty training took place
- Obedience school classes
- Favorite things to do
- What vitamins the puppy takes
- Medical records
- Medical emergencies and blunders
- And much more
There is a keepsake pocket for the first rabies tag after it expires, a page where you can place your puppy’s paw prints, a pocket to keep the adoption papers, a placeholder for an adoption announcement card, a first aid kit list, and picture placeholders throughout the book. You will be able to write what you did with your puppy on special days throughout the calendar year from New Years day to Hanukkah and Christmas — 23 occasions in all.
Dawn Greenfield Ireland is the author of several award-winning novels, nonfiction books, and screenplays. To date she has 12 published novels that consists of three series (cozy mystery, YA science fiction/fantasy, and adult shape-shifter), a dystopian, and a sci-fi romance adventure. The Last Dog, a dystopian novel set in 2086 is closely related to the Covid/Corona pandemic! Who knew there would be so many parallels from the time she wrote the book (2010) to this crazy pandemic of 2020! Three of her nonfiction books have won awards. Nine of her 15 screenplays (comedies, dramas, horror, action adventure and science fiction), have won awards. She has also written three short scripts. Her former day job as an award-winning technical writer (34 years) played a major role in her fiction writing – she is detailed oriented, the organizational queen of the known universe, and never misses a deadline. Dawn writes full time in addition to editing books for authors, and coaching people through the writing process.

We are lucky enough to get an inside look at the author and how she handles writing. And she answered for us the question, Where do you write?
Where do you write?
DG: In my early writing career in my younger days, believe it or not, I used to write in bars with loud music pounding through the speakers. I wrote pages and pages, sometimes with people looking over my shoulder. Most of what I wrote was pretty good.
The music made my thought process less inhibited and the words flowed. The bar scene lasted for a few years, then quiet time took over. Almost as if I had had enough of that blaring stuff and I could graduate to restaurant settings. Restaurants were still a noisy environment, but let’s face it, dining noise is so many decibels below rock music that you could actually hear yourself think.
For the past couple of decades my writing has taken place in my home. I have a dedicated office with an L-shaped desk and a laser printer. The only thing I have to worry about these days is if my big black cat, Midnight, decides he wants to plop down on the keyboard. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to delete his secret messages—all those keystrokes his paws or head creates.
If I get antsy, I may move to the kitchen table where it is light and bright from the windows. While my office has a window, the kitchen table faces a different direction and I look out over the deck to the trees.
Sometimes my laptop makes a trip to the deck and I write on my little table until I can’t bear the heat and humidity any longer. I have to either commit to that early in the morning while it is relatively bearable, or late in the evening while there’s still light out there.
Texas is very hot and humid, so my writing outdoors is limited. First, I don’t want to overheat my laptop. Second, I don’t want to have the heat and humidity make me want to crash in a tub of ice cubes. Third, if even one mosquito finds me, I’m out of there!
There are times when I’ll haul my big MacBook Pro laptop to the sofa and hunker down to write. Then the cats decide to join me and it turns into a struggle. They’re little monsters!
My advice to anybody, including myself, is if you’re going through a bad period, and you just can’t see the world’s on your shoulders and no day is a good day, you’re missing the whole point of the experience. And that’s something dogs know from the moment they come bounding up to you as a puppy.
