The Adventures of Sir Romeo Beau
How I Became a Basset Hound Service-Work Doggie
J R Pullen
Sir Romeo Beau is a sweet and unique basset hound service-work doggie. In recent years, basset hounds have increasingly been used as therapy dogs because of their naturally gentle and good-natured dispositions. However, because of their stubborness, they are rarely used as service-work dogs. Sir Romeo Beau knows how to use this unique trait and is one of the first basset hound service-work doggies in the United States. When James and Rosemary adopted Sir Romeo, they quickly found that their new family member was extra special. He had a natural inclination toward the tasks that would help Rosemary, who copes with disabilities, function more safely and confidently in her daily life. Sir Romeo Beau went on to become an officially trained service-work doggie, trained by By Your Side Inc., a nonprofit organization. In this book, and the others that his daddy is helping him write, he seeks to educate children and adults about the important work he does. Follow Sir Romeo as he works to help keep his mommy safe and bring awareness to the joys and struggles that officially trained service-work doggies deal with every day! A rhyming picture book for children, The Adventures of Sir Romeo Beau entertains while at the same time teaches about the important role officially trained service-work dogs play in the world.
