DescriptionSmokey, the miniature apricot poodle, is blessed. But can it last? With the arrival of a new baby, she struggles to adjust to her new place in the family. After several failed tactics, she ingeniously teaches the baby how to behave around her so they may co-exist peacefully. She realizes that there's enough love for everyone in the family, and also gains a new best friend. We've all heard the sad stories. The once beloved pooch is given away after the birth of a child due to aggressive behavior. A NEW LEASH ON LIFE creatively educates small children about how to behave around dogs, so that, hopefully, more pets can stay with their families. A NEW LEASH ON LIFE includes a helpful, illustrated guide at the back with instructions for how a child should approach a dog, what signs to look for that the dog isn't ready to play, etc. An interview with the Moms of The Humane Society of the United States provides additional tips for introducing a new family member to a pet, how to teach a child to interact safely with their own or other people's pets, and more.

About the Author
Kara Hamilton is a San Francisco-based actress and model with leading roles in films, commercials and advertising campaigns. She holds a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Florida State University where she regularly wrote for 'The Sunshine Network' and Florida A&M's newspaper. She lives in a house of rocks with one husband, two children, three chickens and four battery-operated fish. Before the children, came the dog - a dog she loved to bits and wanted to peacefully coexist with her then-new baby. She desired a creative and entertaining way to teach her child (as well as others) how to properly behave around dogs. Completely based on Kara's life story, the picture book A New Leash On Life was born.
