About the author
Monica McGue was inspired by Georgette, a West Highland White Terrier. A dog has been part of Monica's life, along with horses and other farm animals, since she was born. Young Monica developed a passion for animals, whether trying to saddle the family's horse at the age of two, or putting bows on Max the Basset Hound. These early experiences created an understanding of the important bond between humans and animals, whom Monica considers family members, friends, and teachers. Monica's first book captures Georgette's friends, which reflect kindness, inclusiveness, and compassion.
