Like many kids (and adults ), Gideon loves to pet dogs. He loves petting dogs so much, he asked his mom if he could make a website showcasing all of the dogs he's pet.

In a world filled with strife and sarcasm, Gideon's account brings a bit of sunshine into so many lives. Even celebrities like Lin Manuel Miranda and Kirstie Alley are fans of Gideon's sweet and wholesome content. With each tweet, Gideon presents a photo of himself with a dog he has met and a few lines about the dog's story. He has now pet and profiled over 1,000 dogs

Pet That Dog A Handbook for Making Four-Legged Friends will be an illustrated guide by Gideon and his mom. The handbook will include a guide to meeting, petting, and caring for dogs, facts about dogs, quizzes, and more. The interactive format makes a perfect gift for dog lovers--as well as kids who are curious about dogs, but may be nervous around them. The "how to pet a dog" section is full of helpful do's and don'ts.

The bond between kids and dogs is timeless--and with a social media platform like I've Pet That Dog attached, this handbook is both evergreen and solidly of the moment.
